If you’re looking for a dirt cheap product that will hydrate you skin, save yourself some time and don’t go shopping for long hours, because this won’t do it. The good news is that, all you need are some ingredients that you probably have at home already, at least I did.

Assuming you are in short supply of almond oil and Aloe Vera, this is the stuff that you should purchase and I suggest to buy a bit more than you need for this particular homemade remedy.

The truth is that you can’t have too much almond oil and there are so many do-it-yourself creams and lotions out there, that you should always find a use for it. Back to this homemade eye serum, I couldn’t emphasize more the beneficial effect on the skin, in addition to serving its designated purpose.


Why These Ingredients?

My sensitive skin was reinvigorated after the first application, and a scientist would explain it by highlighting the fact that almond oil is rich in vitamin E, which in turn acts as an antioxidant that helps skin hydrated and fights free radicals. It’s a great moisturizer as it is loaded of fatty acids and acts as humectant and emollient that softens and soothes the skin.

The aloe vera gel makes it easier for the skin to absorb the nutrients without being heavy or greasy and also simplifies the application process, so you won’t have to worry about greasy skin. It is also good for minimizing wrinkles, is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial, is absorbed easily into the skin, and can lessen the appearance of stretch marks!

Among the bonus benefits of this eye serum, I have to mention the fact that it makes it a breeze to remove mascara. It takes less time and there is less friction, which means that you won’t suffer from irritation, even if you have a sensitive skin. And you can make it yourself in about a minute.

You’ll Need:

Sweet Almond Oil
Aloe Vera Gel

Combine equal parts of almond oil and aloe vera gel in a small flip-top bottle.


Shake gently to combine the mixture. (Before application, make sure to shake the mixture because it will separate.) Use your ring fingers to apply the serum, and just gently pat it into the affected area and they blend together perfectly on your skin.


You can modify the ratio if you find the serum too heavy by simply adding more aloe vera but if you want it to be extra moisturizing, just add more almond oil.

A precaution to those who have nut allergies, you can use the Apricot Kernel Oil as another alternative.

veena parcha December 17, 2013 at 8:02 pm

Very nice …tips thank u….

Calleigh December 17, 2013 at 8:14 pm

Sure you can use the fresh one but you need to store this in the fridge or add a drop of vodka to preserve the mixture since you are using the fresh plant.

Jyoti Sharma December 17, 2013 at 8:47 pm

Hi i have asked for help on stretch marks plz help

Calleigh December 18, 2013 at 10:17 am

Try rubbing 100% pure coconut oil on the affected area day and night. Dont stop until you see the stretchmarks fade away.
Or you can try this Natural home remedy using aloe vera:

1. Aloe vera has plant collagen which repairs the skin.
2. Remove the thorns and outer skin of a few aloe vera leaves
3. Extract the gel from inside
4. Apply this gel on the stretch marks
5. Leave it for 2 hr
6. Wash it off with normal water

Every skin reacts differently, this may work for me but may not work for you depending on your lifestyle. I cannot really give a timeline, all I can say is
patience and consistency is the key when using natural remedies and soon you will see results.

Calleigh December 26, 2013 at 1:15 pm

You don’t need to store the mixture in the fridge.

Calleigh December 26, 2013 at 6:44 pm

You can get aloe vera gel at your local grocery stores or health stores.

Using the fresh aloe vera is fine but you need to store it on the fridge and discard if it smells rancid
