Why should we remove the eye makeup?...

The skin around our eyes is stretched millions of times.
It is also exposed to the sun.
Its very thin.
It also has fewer oil glands.
The ingredients used for making up the eyes, can ham the skin if remained on the eyed for long time.

Because of its high visibility status, people become very conscious when wrinkles begin to show or they get puffy eyes from various skin conditions or allergies, that often originate from toxic ingredients in mainstream eye makeup cosmetics.

Natural benefits:

To maintain a good level of moisture and hygiene is one of the most important aspects of natural eye care.

One would want to avoid heavy cosmetics that tend to weigh down this area of the face. These natural advantage eye makeup recipes offer a light feel and the security of only using natural ingredients.

Due to the sensitivity of the eye skin and the location to the eye itself, even when using natural ingredients, we need to take extra care not to include some natural ingredients. One of the important ingredients to avoid are essential oils in any eye care, eye makeup or lip care recipes.

With the few exceptions, there are many natural ingredients that can be used in natural advantage eye makeup recipes. Two of the popular ingredients are Chamomile water, which has a calming and soothing effect on inflamed eyes, and

the second one - potatoes.

Potato juice or grated potatoes have both soothing and anti-inflammatory effect.

This is a great ingredient to be used for bruised eye skin and also for calming the puffy eyes.

Some of the recipes contain water and others don't.

For the ones that do contain water, it should be noted that once water is added, the product becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.

Hence, typically, a product will last for around 4 weeks - less in warm temperatures and longer in cool temperatures.

To maximise storage of the products, they should be kept in the refrigerator.

Natural products should be kept like food.

Doing so will go a long way to keep safe from bacteria and maximise the shelf life without having to use preservatives.
