Removing make-up at the end of the day is really important as you don’t want to get an eye infection. And what better way than with DIY make-up removers. This is perfect if you prefer chemical-free options, have sensitive skin, or just want to try something new! Below I’m going to list a few of the best recipes I’ve come across that will
1. No Tears Baby Shampoo
Baby shampoo is a great and cheap option for those who want to remove their make-up. It is especially great because it doesn’t burn your eyes like other expensive removers will. Just simply apply a bit to cotton and gently remove make-up!
2. Grape Seed and Castor Oil
This recipe is an actual DIY, unlike the shampoo. So the recipe is 3:1 ratio of grape seed to castor oil. Mix the two ingredients and wipe away your make-up. This works best for people with sensitive skin, or people who need a little bit more moisture in their skin.
3. Witch Hazel and Oil
The oil used can be any of your choice like olive oil, castor oil, jojoba oil etc. with witch hazel in a 1:1 ratio. Then apply with cotton swab and watch all the make-up just come right off! Full tutorial here.
4: Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe Vera is actually going to do two things for you: clear your skin of make-up and calm under eye spots and rejuvenate eyes. This works best for people who have bags under their eyes as this can work overnight to keep under-eyes cool. Note: Aloe Vera can also be combined with an oil if you’d like.
Your regular make-up remover might have things like Methyl aldehyde, Methylene oxide or Morbicid acid, but at least these alternatives you can pronounce. Try out these make-up removers today and share your thoughts in the comment section below!
