Who doesn’t look like a zombie in the morning? (ok maybe you don’t… but I do! 😀 )
So here is a simple recipe for deleting that zombie face!!! 😀
[unfortunately the name “zombie vaccine” is not my invention: I had seen it on a funny coffee cup but couldn’t resist using it for this eye gel! :D]
Today I have decided to share the recipe for this lifting eye serum-gel with you!
Yes, I have called it “serum” because it is made of 100% active ingredients 😉 let me show you how…
RECIPE: [if you are new to my recipes… you might want to start from HERE. Anyway all the numbers are the grams of each ingredient and every recipe is up to 100 gr, so it is easy to multiply 😉 ]
Water to 100 (HERE the explanation)
Rose water 30
Sodium Hyaluronate 1
Blueberry Powder Extract 0.3
Preservative (use the amount needed for the one you are using. In my case I have to use 0.6)
Sodium Hyaluronate: does “hyaluronic acid” say anything? 😉 just one gram of Sodium Hyaluronate will give you a beautiful and thick gel! 😀
This is the ingredient which helps to give a bit of a lifting to the delicate eye area! The lifting is partially caused by the fact that the gel, once dry, keeps the skin tense, however the hyaluronic acid which manages to enter the skin, will create bounds with water and keep the skin more hydrated from the inside also 😉
Caffeine: as you well know, it makes the blood circulate better and therefore is also a good anti-puffiness ingredient!
How to: mix together water, rose water, glycerin and caffeine. Heat up very slowly stirring constantly to help caffeine dissolve. Once dissolved, keep stirring slowly until cooled down (and pray caffeine doesn’t crystalize into needles… or it’s all lost! 😀 ).
Once cooled down completely add the preservative and the blueberry powder extract. Only in the end add the Sodium Hyaluronate just by pouring on top of the liquid. DON’T STIR but let it sit on top of the water. Cover the becher with something which will isolate it (it has to be like that for hours… so make sure nothing falls inside… block air too if possible 😉 ). After some hours mix a little and leave alone again.
It will be ready after one day and a half approximately 🙂
Sodium Hyaluronate takes a long time to hydrate.
Check the pH, which shouldn’t be too basic (but remember that Sodium Hyaluronate will probably be around pH 7), if it results too basic adjust it with some acid… otherwise leave at pH 7. 😀
You may add:
1 gr of an oil
0.5 gr of fragrance oil.
But these are just some extras! 😀
Hope you liked this extra simple recipe!
Let me know!!! 😀
