Parties, weddings, or any special occasion calls for a little makeup. No matter what you wear, a little dab of blush and a stroke of eyeliner or peppy lip color can elevate your look from ordinary to glam. While most of us dedicate a good amount of time to applying makeup to our faces to perfect our looks, we often neglect to remove it after the party. Sure, post-party can get very tiresome, but this little mistake can be the cause of your beauty woes in the long run.
There are tons of makeup-removing products available in the market that can help you clean your face without much effort. Some may argue that those products contain chemicals that hardly do any good to our skin. Moreover, sensitive skin may not take too nicely to such products. Then what do we do? As they say, there’s nothing like going the natural way, you can ditch those commercial makeup wipes and liquid removers and head to your kitchen instead to use everyday ingredients to do the job, and that too without having to worry about side effects.
To help you get started, we present five really quick and easy natural ways to remove makeup and pamper your skin at the same time
As good as milk is for our health, it is equally amazing for our skin. Don’t you remember those old stories of queens such as Cleopatra using milk to bathe in? The fat and proteins in milk, especially whole milk, can help hydrate and allow your skin to retain moisture.
You can use a tablespoon of almond oil as well, add it to a bowl of whole milk, and rub it all over your face with a cotton ball. It will not only refresh your face but also remove makeup. To remove eye makeup, wipe your eyes with a cotton ball dipped in milk, and then rinse your face clean.
2. Baking Soda and Honey
This amazing remedy works wonders for any type of makeup. Put a little organic honey on a clean cloth and sprinkle in some baking soda, then clean your face with it. The combination of baking soda and honey works as an excellent cleanser as well as an exfoliator. No need to scrub hard, rub it in gently and complete the process by rinsing your face.
3. Coconut Oil
This wonder ingredient impresses through simplicity. You don’t need anything else to remove even waterproof makeup! Just a dab of coconut oil and that’s good.
Coconut oil has three essential fatty acids and a low molecular weight which gives good penetration. It is also loaded with antimicrobial properties making it an excellent moisturizer for the entire face and body. Best to apply pre-bath and leave for 10 minutes. To get the most out of it, take a quarter-sized amount into your palms and gently rub it into your face or use coconut oil-soaked cotton pads.
4. Cucumber Juice
You need not look further than your refrigerator, Use a blender to mash cucumber until it has become pasty, add a little of your carrier oil of choice (I personally prefer olive), and it’s ready to use as a cleanser. You’ll love how well the mixture soothes the skin while taking off your makeup.
Yes, you’ve read it right. Steaming is a great natural way to remove makeup. Try filling your sink with steaming hot water (not boiling) and leaning over it for a few minutes. It helps to get the last traces of makeup off your face. Steam is the secret skincare weapon of many models too. It unclogs your skin pores and removes all the dirt and impurities
These natural makeup removal remedies are budget-friendly, simple, and super hydrating. Always remember, the more we take care of our skin, the more it will glow.
