9 Natural Makeup Removers
Just as you apply makeup every morning, you need to wipe it off every night. But we don’t need you tell you that, you know it already! But do you know that you don’t have to spend all that money on makeup removers packed with chemicals? Making your own couldn’t be easier – sometimes you only need one ingredient!
1. Coconut oil
The easiest way to remove makeup? Using coconut oil! This is excellent for when you’re traveling and don’t want to carry tons of beauty products with you since coconut oil has dozens of uses. The wonder ingredient impresses through simplicity. You don’t need anything else to remove even waterproof makeup! Find out how here.
2. Olive oil
Isn’t it cool that you already have makeup remover in your pantry? Use hydrating olive oil to remove impurities, and mix it with the pleasant perfume of rose water, as seen on Cute DIYs. Perfect for dry or sensitive skin.
3. Aloe vera
You know about the miraculous benefits of this plant, so include it in your evening routine. We liked Michelle Phan‘s recipe, which mixes aloe water with olive oil.
4. Witch hazel
Not just a makeup remover, witch hazel improves your skin by clearing acne and locking in moisture. Pair it with tea tree oil following our recipe or use lemon essential oil, as described here. A combination of witch hazel, jojoba and aloe vera is gentle on the eyes without irritation. You’ll love how light and non-greasy this makeup remover feels on the skin.
5. Jojoba oil
This oil soothes and protects the skin, while also removing impurities and makeup. Pair it with almond oil to remove makeup from the sensitive area of your eyes.
6. Cucumber juice
Refreshing and cooling, perfect for oily skin, cucumber juice will help remove makeup and brighten dull skin. Find out more here.
7. Baby oil
