Best Ways to Remove Makeup

Image result for removing makeup gif

I always make it a point to clean my face properly before going to bed because I hate sleeping with my makeup on. Some of the reasons why it’s advised not to sleep with your makeup on:
a) It causes the breakdown of healthy collagen, which results in fine lines on your skin.
b) Your pores get clogged.
c) It develops acne-causing bacteria on your skin. This results in more breakouts.
d) It can cause irritation and rashes on your skin.
e) It can result in blackheads and dullness of skin.

Anyway, here are some of the best ways to remove your makeup: 
  1. Baby Wipes:
    If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, then you should consider using baby wipes to remove your makeup since it is soft and safe to use as it is mainly used for cleaning babies.
  2. Milk:
    Another effective and natural way to remove your makeup is by dabbing some milk onto a cotton pad and rubbing it all over your face. In addition to that, milk also helps smooth your skin.
  3. Coconut Oil: 
    For water-resistant makeup, coconut oil is the best solution as it easily wipes off your makeup without burning or irritating your skin. You can apply it onto a cotton pad or directly apply it using your hands.
  4. Olive Oil:
    If you have dry skin, you can make use of olive oil to remove your makeup because it has softening as well as brightening agents.
  5. Vaseline:
    This is the best way to remove eye makeup because it slides off the mascara, eyeliner, and eyeshadow easily.

Make sure to clean your face with a cleanser suitable to your skin after using any of these methods. There are many cleansers available in the market for different skin types such as combination skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, oily skin, and so much more!

    Love this post! I usually just use oil for Olay wipes and they get my make up off. If it is really caked on, I will use coconut oil:) ❤

    Wow…milk??? I use Simple cleansing wipes and Clean & Clear. There is always Vaseline around the house but have never used it to remove eye makeup. What a brilliant (money saving) post. Thank you! I cannot count the times I have not removed my makeup properly cause I had run out of makeup remover (when there was Vaseline, milk and coconut oil in the house!!!) 😜😜 brill post!

      You should! It removes all the makeup and gives you baby skin, haha. Oh, I’ve heard of castor oil before, but I’ve never used it. That sounds amazing! 😀
