Natural Makeup Remover
Bye Bye Make Up
These are one of my favorite DIY personal care items. If you’re anything like me, when it’s time to go to bed you may grab one of those packaged, pre-made makeup remover wipes to take off your mascara. If only you knew what you were doing to your skin with those wipes (check out the part about common ingredients at the bottom of that article)!
I have used make up remover for some time now. I find it easier to get off all my make up. The thing is, I was never sold on any particular product and I always struggled to find a brand I really loved. During my start of my wellness journey, I did a quick check of my "gentle" makeup remover and found that it was not so gentle after all.
For my sensitive skin, sometimes the remover would burn around my eyes, which is where I wear most of my makeup, or it would irritate the skin even more. I found that most of the products I was using before I found essential oils was completely filled with toxins. So I’ve been making my own DIY Bye Bye Makeup inspired from a recipe that I fell in love with from Jen O’Sullivan’s recipe book.
It may seem weird at first to clean your skin with oil, but it is really life changing. Unlike harsh cleansers, it actually moisturizes your skin while cleansing it and breaking down makeup and grime. I read that coconut oil has natural antibacterial properties which help fight blemishes. I also pair it with some skin supportive essential oils to really help keep my skin looking healthy.
Here is What You Will Need
I would choose two essential oils and split up the drops equally, essential oils like Frankincense, Lavender, Tea Tree, Copiabia, Patchouli, Geranium and Manuka are all great skin options. There are so many Young Living Essential Oils that support a variety of healthy skin types. I usually look in my Essential Oils Desk Reference for ideas on how to support my skin.
I love these DIY self-care products because they honestly take me about a minute to make and they are so easy and convenient at the end of the day to start my skin care routine.
