Daily use of makeup remover tonic can dry out and damage facial skin. No matter how good and mild the tonic you use, the chemicals it contains are certainly not something your skin needs on a daily basis. There are various ways to make your usual makeup removal routine more beneficial for your complexion.
If you can't find an adequate make-up remover that is completely pleasing to your facial skin, it may be time to try something different - more natural products that would remove makeup residue with equal ease and efficiency. Here are some recipes that contain completely natural ingredients that are effective in removing makeup.
Olive oil is a great way to remove makeup. Simply soak the cotton in the oil and pass over the lids, then clean the face and rinse with lukewarm water.
Olive oil is great for removing waterproof makeup. After a few days, you will notice that the area under your eyes is refreshed, as well as that the under-eye circles are less pronounced. You can also use coconut oil instead of olive oil, and if you wear lenses or if you have sensitive eyes, use sesame or almond oil to remove makeup.
French women often use this oil to remove makeup. Apply just a few drops of oil on a cotton ball and clean the lashes first. After that, just rinse your face with lukewarm water and wipe it with a clean towel. Don't forget that almond oil is easily absorbed into the skin, it is rich in essential acids, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and E. It is great for dry skin, as well as skin prone to dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis.
Chamomile and jojoba and lavender oils
You will need 50 ml of jojoba oil, 50 ml of chamomile tea, and one drop of lavender oil. Make chamomile tea, strain it, and when it cools down add jojoba oil and 1 drop of lavender oil. Shake before each use, because oil and tea will separate due to different densities. Apply the shaken product to the cotton ball and remove the make-up from the sensitive area around the eyes.
The eyes are sensitive, as is the skin around them, so by improperly removing makeup, as well as applying face cream, you can cause eye irritation, but also the appearance of small wrinkles and dark circles.
Cucumber and milk
In addition to relieving puffiness and refreshing the eye area, cucumber is an excellent makeup cleanser, especially in combination with milk. In addition, it stimulates the natural production of collagen and slows down the aging process. Peel a large cucumber, mix it and add half a deciliter of milk, then cook over low heat for 10 minutes. When it cools, you can use it. If you keep the mixture in a closed box and refrigerator, it will be usable for a few days.
Did you know that the most popular ingredient in natural makeup removers is milk? It is advisable to clean the face with milk in the evening because it nourishes the skin and makes it soft. Repeat the procedure at least twice and rinse with lukewarm water. Choose milk depending on your skin type, so if your skin is dry, use whole milk, oily skin needs skimmed milk, and normal skin needs partially skimmed milk.
Banana and soy milk
Squeeze one banana well, then add a tablespoon of soy milk. Mix everything well and apply the mixture to the face. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water. This way you will remove all the make-up, and your skin will be smooth and well-groomed.
Remember, make-up from the eyes is not removed by sudden rubbing movements, so moisten the cotton ball with make-up remover, put it on the eye, hold it for about 5 seconds and then gently pull it down and up.
