Natural makeup remover
Natural Makeup Remover
Wearing makeup is a daily ritual for many women. When the time comes to take off your makeup it can seem like a chore that you dread to do, understandable. Are you tired of spending valuable money on a wet piece of cloth to remove your makeup?
Now, there is a way you can make a homemade makeup remover that is gentle on your skin, as well as easy on your bank account, but is still effective at removing all of your makeup. Typically store-bought makeup removers contain certain chemicals that can cause reactions, irritations, breakouts and even dry out your skin.
A quality makeup remover is essential to our everyday lives without it all of our towels would have face prints stained into them, we would wake up with raccoon eyes, clogged pores and even premature signs of aging, at the end of the day our skin needs to breathe.
Simply using either olive oil or coconut oil will effectively remove your makeup. The reason oils are so great at removing makeup is because they break down the makeup making it easy to wash off and remove completely. Extra-virgin olive oil, specifically, is a perfect eye makeup remover, as eye-makeup can be the hardest to remove. Also, it is gentle and hydrating. It will even break down stubborn waterproof makeup. You can use these oils on your whole face, including your eyes.
Simply take the oil, apply it to your skin and leave it on for a two minutes to allow it to break down your makeup. You can either wipe it off gently or rinse it off with warm water.
Let’s take these natural items and make this apart of our daily beauty regimen for clean, soft skin that will allow you to rest peacefully on your pillow at night.
