DIY Homemade Makeup Remover Pads

What you need:
  • coconut oil (I recommend organic, virgin coconut oil)
  • cotton rounds
  • jar (an 8 oz canning jar will work)

  • Place the cotton pads in the jar
  • Pour the melted oil over the top of the pads.
  • Press down on the pads so coconut oil evenly absorb into them.

How To Use:                                                                                                                                       
Use one pad at a time to remove makeup from your face. Dispose of pad after use. Keep the lid on the jar to prevent the pads from drying out.

Benefits of Coconut Oil in your Beauty Routine.

You may have already made the switch to coconut oil in the kitchen, but did you know you can also swap out some of your beauty products for this beauty hack. Coconut Oil is super healthy and has a great scent. This ingredient can be used to moisturize skin and remove make-up and many more… Here are all the ways you can incorporate coconut oil into your beauty routine (until we discover more!). 

Use it as a Hair Mask 
Coconut oil is amazing for your hair, and because it is all natural you can leave it in your hair for as long as you want. One way, could be to leave the coconut oil in the hair and let it work overnight, and cleanse it out in the morning. This is a great way to moisturize any damaged hair. It will leave your hair with a silky smooth feel and a scent of coconut. 

Moisturize your skin 
As a solid, coconut oil's creamy texture makes it the perfect light moisturizer to lather all over. Apply a quarter sized amount right after you get out of the shower so it can sink into your warm skin. The light tropical scent that lingers after it's applied. Add in a few drops of peppermint or lavender oil for a massage mix.  

Unchap those lips 
Your chapped lips don't have a chance with that coconut oil! Just use those fingers to dab and smear it all over. Just pour some into a small container, and carry it on.  

Natural Make-Up Remover
Coconut oil can also be used as a great make-up remover. Apply the oil on a cotton ball, and wipe away any make-up. This even works on waterproof mascara, while hydrating the eyelashes and under eye area. 

So you don’t have any shaving cream…and you need to shave those hairy legs..? Coconut oil to the rescue! Just warm the jar under the water and smooth onto legs before shaving. Your razor will glide smoothly, allowing for a super-close shave, and your legs will be moisturized from the oil in the process. Tip: shave outside the shower. The oil is very slippery, so you'll have an easier time holding onto your razor if your hands are dry.

So let's be resourceful and start being natural.

Top 3 MakeUp Remover

As a total makeup junkie, I spend a lot of time trying on makeup and taking them off (and half the time it just looks bad on me). I was asked by someone who is exactly like me, "What is the best makeup remover?" Makeup removers are not essential but they can be very helpful (and sometimes absolutely necessary) for removing long-wearing or waterproof formulas.

The main things I look for in a good makeup remover are:
- will not harm my skin
- leaves no oily residue on my white towels
- removes makeup right away

 Here are the top 3 picks:

1. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - Hydrating
Removes oil and makeup gently, but thoroughly off the face. It does not irritate or clog the pores. It is at a reasonable price and price and still keeps the shininess on the face. Leaves skin feeling clean, refreshed and moisturized with no residue left behind.

2.  Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips
This eye and lip makeup remover easily dissolves long wearing makeup, even waterproof mascara. You can re-apply makeup right away just  by rinsing your face with a little water.

3. Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover
This product gently whisks away all types of eye makeup, even waterproof. Simply shake to activate the bi-phase formula that leaves the eye area perfectly clean. Ideal for sensitive skin and contact lenses, it leaves eyes feeling cool and relaxed without an oily residue.

Finally, a product that works as cleanser but also removes make up is the  Bioderma Crealine H2O.
This star product is suitable for all especially those with sensitive skin because of its patented natural complex and a soothing cucumber extract to ensure skin’s natural pH is maintained. It is also fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. Use it as a daily cleanser to remove makeup from face and eyes.
