Natural Make-up Remover

Looking for the cleanest make-up remover? One answer may be in your kitchen. Natural oils, such as olive oil and coconut oil, not only remove waterproof make-up effectively, but they can also nourish and enrich your skin at the same time. Follow these steps to quickly remove a day's worth of make-up and grime without irritation:

  • Massage. Using your fingertips, massage your natural oil of choice into the skin and eyelashes in circular motions for 30 sections, paying extra attention to areas where you applied waterproof make-up.
  • Wipe. Gently use an organic cotton round to wipe off the make-up, which should come right off without scrubbing. If it is difficult, massage in another dab of oil.
  • Rinse. Use your usual facial cleanser to rinse away any remaining residue.
  • Protect. Apply an emollient sunscreen if it's still daytime or a hydrating night cream if you are done with your day.
