At the end of a long day, nothing feels better than a clean, freshly washed face. It’s getting all the makeup and build-up off in one fell swoop that’s the tough part. The miracle fix that’s waiting right under your nose? Coconut oil.
It’s 100% natural and doesn’t have any weird chemicals. Also, it removes mascara like nobody’s business. Using coconut oil as makeup remover will completely revolutionize your nightly routine. In a pinch, find it in the pantry of a friend or random family or keep the all-natural makeup remover in your purse.
What you need:
- Coconut oil (Make sure to buy an extra virgin variety)
- Warm water
- Cotton pads
Directions: Rub a teaspoon portion of coconut oil between your fingers. Gently apply to the makeup you wish to remove. (It works especially well on tricky mascara and eyeliner.) Rub until your makeup is loose. Use warm water and cotton pads to wipe clean. Note: If you don’t remove all of the coconut oil, don’t fret: coconut oil is a great moisturizer and can help strengthen your eyelashes and smooth your skin.
