So, the other day I was telling you how Gawd-awful it was to sleep in your makeup. If you missed it: here you go! Naturally, one would need some type of makeup remover in the first place in order to actually utilize this information. You could just wash your face with your daily cleanser, but that is no guarantee that all the residue is gone at the end of the day. Using makeup remover before cleansing your skin is the only way to make sure all the gunk is gone!
One problem- you and I are all about that no-chemical, non-toxic, raw-natural skincare life tho! And most commercial makeup removers contain stuff that just doesn't fit into this category. Things like mineral oil (my personal nemesis), sorbic acid (not to be confused with ascorbic acid), methylparaben, titanium dioxides, perfumes..you see what we're dealing with? So, naturally, I will be sharing my favorite DIY makeup removing recipes that fit better into your lifestyle!
This is by far the easiest to make. You just need:
Mix the witch hazel and oil together and use your cotton pad to wipe your makeup away. Make sure you are gentle when going around your eye area, and try not to get it close to your inner eye rim.
This one is only trickier because you have to acquire some good, quality vitamin E. But if you can get it, it's well worth it because vitamin E is FANTASTIC for caring for your skin and great for the skin around your eyes!
Mix all your oils together and use your cotton pad to wipe your makeup away. ALWAYS: Make sure you are gentle when going around your eye area, and try not to get it close to your inner eye rim.
This for those who don't want to mix a damn thing!
Just pour EVOO on your cotton pad and wipe away!
Because some of us DIYers like to show out!
Puree all your ingredients together and use your cotton pad to wipe your makeup away.
So, you have no more excuses not to remove your makeup at the end of the day. Let's not have to keep having this discussion. Lol. Let me know if you try any of these DIY's by commenting on any post on Instagram (we're @MyButterBarSkincare) and if they worked for you!
