How are you all doing? Hope your week is coming along well. Today, I am going to share a few recipes of eye creams that I have been using since the last 6 months. Just 3 months before my wedding, I noticed a few dark circles and fine lines around my eyes (stress, anxiety, excitement all mixed up!). Since I didn’t want to resort to any chemical-laden products because I was scared it might just make it worse, I mixed up a few ingredients and created my very first batch of eye cream.
