5 cheap natural remedies to remove that stubborn makeup

There are tons of makeup removing products available in the market that can help you clean your face without much effort. Some may argue that those products contain chemicals that hardly do any good to our skin. Moreover, sensitive skins may not take too nicely to such products. Then what do we do? Like they say, there’s nothing like going the natural way, you can ditch those commercial makeup wipes and liquid removers and head to your kitchen instead to use everyday ingredients to do the job, and that too without having to worry about side effects.

To help you get started, we present five really quick and easy natural ways to remove makeup and pamper your skin at the same time -

1. Milk

As good as milk is for our health, it is equally amazing for our skin. Don’t you remember those old stories of queens such a Cleopatra using milk to bathe in? The fat and proteins in milk, especially whole milk, can help hydrate and allow your skin to retain moisture.
You can use a tablespoon of almond oil as well, add it to a bowl of whole milk, and rub it all over your face with a cotton ball. It will not only refresh your face but also remove makeup. To remove eye makeup, wipe your eyes with a cotton ball dipped in milk, and then rinse your face clean.


2. Baking Soda and Honey

This remedy is good for any skin type. Grab some honey lying in your kitchen and put it on a piece of cotton or a clean cloth. Sprinkle some baking soda on the honey and watch it act as great cleanser as well as exfoliator. Just rub the cloth or cotton gently on your face to wipe off the makeup and rinse it off. You can use a face wash but it can take away the after effect of honey on your skin, so it is better if you just rinse with lukewarm water and let the effect of honey repair your skin cells all night long.


3. Coconut oil

This wonder ingredient impresses through simplicity. You don’t need anything else to remove even waterproof makeup! Just a dab of coconut oil and that’s good.
To get the most out of it, take a quarter-sized amount into your palms and gently rub it into your face or use coconut oil soaked cotton pads.


4. Cucumber juice

Many commercial beauty products including face washes and cleaners have cucumber as an ingredient. That's because this common kitchen ingredient is a no-fuss healer. It has anti-inflammatory properties and can soothe irritated or acne prone skin.It is a water-based vegetable and is an excellent makeup remover particularly for oily skin.

So the next time you face a beauty woe, or want to remove all that makeup without hassle, look no further from your own refrigerator. Use a blender to mash cucumber until it becomes like a paste, add some olive oil to this paste and watch your home-made cleanser change your life. The natural mixture will tackle your makeup troubles and will soothe your skin. Rinse your face with lukewarm water and try to avoid any other product afterwards to let the facial moisture repair your skin.

5. Steam

Steaming is also a natural way to remove your makeup. It is also one of the most soothing cleanser that replenishes the skin from within. You can use steam and wipe your face with a cotton pad and rinse off. If you are wearing heavy or waterproof makeup it is best to use any of the treatments above and then use steam to remove any leftover impurity. Steam is the secret skincare for many celebrities as well, it is simple, hassle-free and helps unclog pores to remove dirt and impurities.

You can invest in a steamer which is available at most departmental stores, or simply fill a bowl with piping hot water with a few drops of oil, cover your face with a towel and let the steam clear your skin and calm your senses.


These natural makeup removal remedies are simple-yet-effective. They repair the skin, which can keep your skin glowing and prevent any damage from makeup products, so that you can continue glowing and looking great.
