The process of applying makeup is almost therapeutic. But when it comes to removing it at night before bed, we all wish it would just magically disappear. But, just like how the application requires proper time and attention, the process of removing makeup — so the skin can repair itself at night — is equally important.
Many makeup removers are filled with chemicals, but there are many natural alternatives available too. “There is no need to mix too many things and make your makeup remover, as it can be simply done with particular oils that work wonders, while also nourishing your skin. In fact, the oil cleansing method is known to be the most effective way to cleanse the skin naturally,” says Amit Sarda, MD of Soulflower, skincare brand.
Oily skin: A blend of “castor oil, grapeseed oil and lavender essential oil” works best, says Sarda.
Acne-prone Skin: Use castor oil mixed with a few drops of jojoba oil to nourish your skin, and tea-tree essential oil to calm down the acne.
Dry skin: Nourish your skin with an equal amount of castor oil, olive oil, and rosemary essential oil.
Normal skin: Sarda suggests going for castor oil, argan oil and ylang-ylang essential oil.
