Whether you prefer just a touch of kajal and gloss or just can’t leave the house without your foundation on, there’s one thing that you must have in your beauty box is a reliable makeup remover. However, most makeup removers are laced with chemicals that have the tendency to dry up your skin, leaving it screaming for some moisture. Try using a natural makeup remover to let your skin stay healthy. Here are some ingredients you can use to make a homemade makeup remover.
Olive oil makeup remover
- Four tablespoons of olive oil
- Two tablespoons of water
Blend thoroughly both the olive oil and water. Slather on the olive oil mixture on your dry face. Let the oil sit on your skin for few minutes. With a cotton pad wipe your face, if needed reapply the mixture to thoroughly clean your skin. Then wash off the excess oil present on your face with lukewarm water.
Green tea and glycerin makeup remover
- One tablespoon of brewed green tea
- Half tablespoon of vegetable glycerin
- One tablespoon of grape seed oil
Combine all the above ingredients. Stir well so that all the ingredients blend with each other. Spread the whole mixture on your dry skin. Leave it on your face until your makeup dissolves, wipe off with a cotton pad.
Coconut oil and neroli makeup remover
- 2-ounce coconut oil
- 2-ounce cocoa butter
- 10 drops of vitamin E oil
- 10 drops of neroli essential oil
- 8 drops of lavender essential oil
- 5 drops of vanilla extract
Use a double boiler to melt and combine the whole cocoa butter and coconut oil. Allow the mixture to cool down to room temperature and then add the essential oils and vitamin E oil. Stir well to mix all the ingredients. Take a small amount of the mixture and rub it on your face. Use a washcloth and lukewarm water to wash your face.
Avocado and coconut oil makeup remover
- One tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil
- One teaspoon of avocado oil
If coconut oil is solid liquefies the oil by placing the container containing the coconut oil on a bowl containing hot water. Mix the melted coconut oil with the avocado oil. Gently massage your face with the oil mixture. With a cotton pad wipe away the makeup that had dissolved in the oil.
Aloe makeup remover

- One teaspoon jojoba oil
Blend the two ingredients and gently massage your face with the mixture for a minute. Leave aloe Vera mixture on your face for few minutes. Wipe off the makeup with a cotton pad.
