There are plenty of makeup removers out there to choose from. But why buy when you can DIY?! This homemade makeup remover uses a recycled bottle, is perfect for sensitive skin and requires only two natural ingredients. Extra virgin olive oil is similar to the oil your skin naturally produces. It won’t clog pores nor dry out your skin. Aloe vera water is high in amino acids and vitamins. Aloe has been used for centuries to heal wounds and calm skin. It’s also magically moisturizing! Let’s get started . . . . .
extra virgin olive oil
aloe vera juice
used, cleaned 8oz bottle
(Water or beauty product bottles work well. You can also use a fancy glass bottle if that’s your thing!)
Pour a scant ½ cup of olive oil in your bottle. Fill remainder with aloe vera juice (or filtered water if you need). Now Shake Shake Shake! (Ever heard that phrase, “They are like oil and water”? Well, these two ingredients won’t mix on their own. They need a good, violent shake. Make sure the lid is on tight!)
Soak a cotton ball/pad with your homemade remover and gently press onto the eye area. Hold for ten seconds to break-up the makeup. Wipe away gently. It is important to use extra care when removing eye make-up; a light touch is all you need. Continue this process until all makeup is removed and your cotton wipes clean.
