Is your make-up remover supply running low? Or maybe you just want to try something new other than chemically and commercially manufactured products? We can help you with some recipes and tips for making natural cleansing products, which will also allow you to save money. This recipe uses essential ingredients that you can easily find yourself.
To make this simple make-up remover with natural products, you will need baking soda, sweet almond oil, and honey.
To begin place a saucepan over a low heat; mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of almond oil, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 cup of water. Remove from the heat, let it cool down and put the mixture in a container. Shake well before using it on your face. Spread it on your face and rinse with water.
Olive oil: You can improvise a cleanser for your face and eyes with a little olive oil (or any other oil of your choice.) Take a bottle or airtight container; put it in boiling water to sterilize. Pour a tablespoon of oil in the bottle and add boiled and cooled water. Close and shake well… and it’s ready! Then put this lotion on cotton wool, and use to remove all your make-up gently and effectively.
There is another magic lotion that can be made with milk, salt, lime or lemon juice: take half a glass of milk, add a pinch of salt and two tablespoons of lime juice. Dip a cotton wool ball in this mixture and use to clean your face and neck, rinse with water and the result will amaze you!
Wine or apple vinegar: it is an excellent cleansing tonic which also works well to help cure acne.
Lemon mint: first prepare an infusion with a handful of mint leaves, let it cool and then add a teaspoon of lemon juice. This little miracle potion will help clean and disinfect your skin.
Green Tea (chamomile tea also works in the same way): green tea has an astringent action and it purifies the skin from acne. Green tea also has anti-aging properties and is rich in antioxidant substance. Any lotion with green tea works particularly well for dark circle around the eye’s.
Obviously, the most natural cleansing product is water. But water is not sufficient for removing make-up, especially long lasting make-up. You should take particular care to clean your make-up before going to sleep so that your skin can breathe.
These natural cleansers can come in handy if you want to stay eco-friendly when it comes to cleansing face.
