And most products that are targeted toward makeup removal contain a whole sleu of ingredients that only do us harm. So skip the nightmare of makeup removal and toxic ingredients with these 3 DIY makeup remover recipes!
Makeup Remover Recipes
Light and Easy Nourishing Makeup Remover:
What You Need:
- 1 ½ – 2 cups of distilled water
- 2 tbsp of light oil (such as olive, jojoba, almond)
- 1 tbsp liquid castille soap (like Dr. Bronners)
- 1 tbsp aloe vera gel juice
- 20 drops of essential oil such as lavender or geranium (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and seal tightly. Vigorously shake the jar until all contents are well mixed.
Dip a cotton ball or wipe into the jar and let it completely soak. Then gently rub over the face until all makeup is removed and your true beautiful self is revealed! Rinse with lukewarm water and again with cool water and pat dry.
Toner + Makeup Remover with ACV
If you’re in a pinch and need something less complicated, with less ingredients but still effective and beneficial, try this simple apple cider vinegar tonic to restore skin’s natural pH balance and remove makeup and dirt.
What You Need:
- 1 green tea bag
- 1 cup of distilled water
- ½ cup of apple cider vinegar (If you have dry skin use a little less, if oily use a little more)
First bring the water to a boil and allow the green tea bag to steep for 15-20 minutes. Then put the tea in the fridge until chilled. Next combine the green tea and the apple cider vinegar in a glass jar and seal tightly. Give the jar a gentle shake so the two liquids are well mixed.
Dip a cotton ball or wipe into the jar and let it completely soak. Then gently rub over the face until all makeup is removed and your true beautiful self is revealed!
Exfoliate + Nourish with Baking Soda and Honey
Another super easy way to remove makeup and dirt while not having to buy expensive products at the store is a simple honey, baking soda combo. The baking soda exfoliates and pulls away makeup and oil build-up while honey nourishes the newly exposed skin.
What You Need:
- 1 tbsp of honey
- ½ tsp of baking soda
After rinsing your face with lukewarm water, use your hands to rub the honey and baking soda together then gently apply to the face. Soak a wash cloth in warm water and use that to remove the honey, baking soda mask and makeup and dirt along with it!
Because baking soda can dry the skin, be sure to moisturize after with a light oil such as almond or jojoba.
