Honey Face Wash: The healing property of honey makes it a great skincare agent. Honey also contains enzymes that help slough away dead skin cells. To remove makeup with honey, simply uses about a teaspoon of Manuka Honey or Raw Organic Honey, spread it over your face, and then rub in a circular motion. Leave the honey on your face for 10 minutes then rinse off with warm water. Your skin will be feeling fresh and dewy.
To remove makeup in a hurry, a lot of people like to use makeup remover wipes, but a lot of store-bought wipes contain chemical preservatives and other hormone disrupting ingredients that you want to avoid. Why not go for DIY makeup remover wipes then? All you need is a pint-sized jar with a tight-fitting lid and cotton rounds. Put 1 tsp pure aloe vera, 3 tsp pure witch hazel extract, 1 tsp liquid castile soap, 1 tsp fractionated coconut oil and 8-12 drops skin-soothing essential oil like lavender or frankincense in the jar, shake them well. After that, stack the cotton rounds in the jar, gently shake it to coat them with the mixture. Then you can use a cotton round to wipe your makeup off anytime, even when you’re on the go.
