Most ladies always want to know how else they can take off their all-day makeup, especially when cleanser gets too expensive, scarce or even exhausted. Also, some people prefer the natural way out of anything, including natural ways of removing their makeup before going to bed, instead of applying chemical-filled cleanser that can make them spend more and comes with many side effects or irritations.
Another thing most ladies don’t really understand is the fact that using the same cotton wool or removal pad for your lip makeup, eye makeup, foundation, etc is absolutely not hygienic and should be totally avoided.
Today, we will be focusing on best ways to remove makeup before bed and these include the following:
- Baby Wipes
No mother will want to use a wipe that causes irritation to her baby’s skin and that’s why baby wipes usually top most lists, seeing as it is naturally reliable. This is one of the best ways of removing your makeup before bed, thanks to the natural, liquid moisturizer that comes with the wipes.
- Coconut Oil
It is of utmost importance that we have this element in place as a backup or even main source while getting rid of our makeup after a stressful day. This oil is a natural moisturizer and is easily accessible. It touches and wipes off every stubborn or hidden makeup which makes it a must-use.
- Baby Oil
Another way of removing makeup before going to bed is by making use of baby oil. Unlike the baby wipe which comes with a liquid moisturizer, baby oil comes with oily moisturizer. This also works and can absolutely be relied on anytime and anywhere.
Another reliable method is the use of cucumber. The liquid that comes naturally with this green fruit makes it absolutely easy and worth it for removing makeup. To use this fruit, dice it into different pieces, take one slice, rub round the face; take another slice until fully satisfied. Leave for few seconds to dry off and then rinse the face with clean water.
- Honey & Baking Soda
Honey and baking soda seem to be longtime best friends and applying these two substances on your face to wipe off makeup before bed time brings so much miracle in the morning. You can never go wrong with this mixture and that’s why they remain ever reliable. All you need to do is apply the mixture over your face, leave for few minutes and then rinse out.
It may sound silly, but when it comes to makeup removal, steam is your friend. Try filling your sink with steaming hot water (not boiling) and leaning over it for a few minutes. Also, another way is soaking a washcloth in hot water, let it cool off for a few seconds and place it on your face.
