Many are yet to understand the need to take off makeup at the end of the day but that’s a topic for another day. For those who realize the importance, a pack of wipes is always on hand to rid the face of all those products.
However, what happens when you come home, looking forward to jumping into bed and you realise you have ran out of face wipes/babywipes/make up remover?
Beauty vlogger Lola OJ, like many finds this annoying but alas, she’s found alternatives that will get the job done as well.
According to her, there are a couple of products around the house that can be used as natural make up removers. They include:
Olive oil as we know, is a very good natural ingredient and not only is it good to cook with, it is also good for the skin!
When used as a natural make up remover, it can be particularly good for individuals with dry skin as it has healing properties and natural softening agents in it too. It really does leave your skin feeling silky smooth.
Coconut oil is another amazing raw product that works as an amazing natural oil, it lifts dirt from the face whilst adding needed moisture to the skin.
I know that most household have vaseline (petroleum jelly) as it can be used for a number of things. Now, vaseline works amazingly to remove mascara effortlessly, whenever I wear mascara I used vaseline to remove it as I find it is smoothest method. However, I would not advise you use vaseline to remove make up from your entire face as it is very thick so can clog your skin pores.
Other natural make up removers
Now steaming works so well!! All you need to do is pour hot water into a basin, place a towel over your head and hover over the steam. Not only will the steam loosen the make up from your face, it will also lift the dirt from your pores so once you rinse your face will feel a nice freshness.
This is a good alternative to olive oil or vaseline. As you can imagine, most baby products are extremely gentle on the skin as they are created with babies in mind.
Natural milk is a very soothing and light natural make up remover, so is great for sensitive skin.
