Natural Makeup Remover

Wearing makeup is glamorous, it makes women feel beautiful, it makes them look great, and it can be fun to try out new styles and colors. Applying foundation, lipstick, mascara, and different shades of eye shadow is easier than removing it at the end of the day. Waterproof mascara is especially hard to remove because it is meant to withstand water. However, all makeup should be removed at the end of the day or before you go to sleep. Sleeping with makeup on will clog your pores which cause acne and black heads. It can also cause eye infections. If some makeup removers with chemicals in them irritate your skin, here are some natural makeup remover alternatives that will be sure to remove all makeup from your eyes and face.

Foundation can be removed very easily. You can remove it by washing your face with lukewarm water and an organic soap. If the water is too hot, you may start to notice that your skin will get dry. Organic soaps don’t have any chemicals or synthetic materials in them that can dry out or irritate your skin. After you remove the foundation you can use some type of moisturizer or aloe vera to keep your skin free from aging and wrinkles. This isn’t a necessary step for removing makeup, but it is a good beauty tip for keeping your skin youthful and having a beautiful glow. Not to mention properly moisturized as well.

Eye makeup is harder to remove than foundation, and sometimes soap and water doesn’t properly remove it. It is important to remove all eye liner, mascara, and eye shadow because the skin around your eyes is so sensitive that it can dry out or become irritated very easily. Also, leaving eye makeup on can lead to eye infections. There are a lot of different products that you can use to remove eye makeup. Cosmetic departments sell eye makeup remover that can be very costly and are not made with natural ingredients. It is better to use natural skin products because they are less harsh on your skin, and they don’t contain chemicals. Some house hold, natural ingredients are not only inexpensive but better for your skin as well.

A common household ingredient that every family has in their kitchen is olive oil. Believe it or not, this organic cooking product can be used to remove eye makeup. Less common oils that also remove makeup well are jojoba oil and mineral oil. After using oils to remove makeup, rinse your eyes with water so you won’t be left with an oily residue or oily feeling. Another product that will protect against wrinkles and work great is baby oil or natural baby shampoo. Another age old product that is made from a plant is witch hazel. Alcohol free witch hazel is good to use because it won’t sting your eyes. When using it, be sure to keep your eyes closed to avoid a very uncomfortable feeling if it happens to get in your eyes.

  1. Thank you for the tip! I use organic facial wash and was having problems removing my eyeliner completely.

    • How are you doing, did you still have issues with your eye make up? I have recently found the only way to get it all off, is to take a cotton round, and kind of pinch it above and below the eyelashes and pull it off. Otherwise, it just doesn’t come off! Come back soon!
