What are you using to remove your makeup with? And how does your skin react to it?
A few years ago I started using different oils on my face such as coconut oil.
I liked it so much that I never went back to commercial makeup removers.
Using coconut oil as a makeup remover works really great for me. It’s gentle on my skin and the oil moisturizes and protects it.
From skin to lips to eyes; even waterproof mascara comes off easily!
Most commercial makeup removers contain synthetic ingredients and/or mineral oil and I don’t want to put any of that on my body.
Our skin is our largest organ and absorbs enough chemicals as is, so I was thrilled to find a product that not only does the job well, but really takes care of my skin too.
Make sure – as with anything new you put on your skin, especially on your face – to test it first.
Some people get breakouts from using oils directly on their skin, while others find it to be very beneficial.
Coconut oil can clog pores, so it’s important to clean your skin well after using it.
Having sensitive skin myself, I find that coconut oil doesn’t ever irritate it. Other makeup removers always used to leave some sort of unpleasant sensation, but since I switched to coconut oil as a makeup remover, my skin has been doing much better.
I like to use a raw virgin organic coconut oil on my face, as it’s the purest and most natural one.
It leaves my skin clean and soft with a healthy glow.
This is a simple one!
Apply a small amount of coconut oil to a cotton pad and gently dab until all the makeup is off.
Rinse with water and a good tonic (optional) to remove any excess oil.
Do you like the idea of using coconut to clean your face with, but prefer something less oily? Try coconut milk as a makeup remover enriched with Aloe Vera.
