DIY Make Up Remover

Wednesday 7 December 2011

This is a very quick and easy way to make your own make up remover. 

All you need is
1/2 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
500 ml bottle of Aloe Vera Water*
Make up remover eye pads/cotton balls

Pour the olive oil into the bottle of aloe vera. Because oil and water don't mix easily, you really need to shake it up. Apply the mixture onto your cotton pad or ball and gently apply onto your face, leave for 3 seconds then sweep across your skin. It is normally easier to work your way down your face, starting with your forehead then onto your eyes/nose/cheeks/lips/chin. 

This can either be used if you have run out of your make up remover and are in need of a quick remover, or if you have sensitive skin its great to use every day. 

Extra virgin olive oil is so soothing and gentle on the skin, and wont clog your pores. The aloe vera is soothing and cooling on your skin. Because it is 95% water it is really hydrating for your skin. 

*You can buy Aloe vera water from health food stores and supermarkets
