Just as you apply make-up every morning, you need to wipe it off every night too. And, we don’t need to tell you that, you already know that! But, did you know that you don’t have to spend all the money on make-up removers packed with chemicals? Well, of course, making your own make-up remover is really easy. Don’t be surprised when we say, that sometimes all you need is just one ingredient!

Makeover artiste and Educator Ankita Maingi from Palette by Ankita Maingi at Makeup studio and Academy has dolled out these simple tips for HerZindagi readers, which will make your skin look gorgeous forever.

Just as yummy as it tastes, this wonder ingredient can awe you with its myriad benefits. With this, you don’t need anything else to remove even your waterproof makeup!

Olive Oil

Isn’t it cool that you already have make-up remover in your pantry? Use hydrating olive oil to remove impurities, and mix it with the pleasant perfume of rose water, as seen on cute DIYs. Perfect for the dry or sensitive skin.

Aloe Vera

You know about the miraculous benefits of this plant, so include it in your evening routine. We liked Michelle Phan‘s recipe, which mixes aloe water with olive oil. This oil soothes and protects the skin, while also removing impurities and makeup. Pair it with almond oil to remove make-up from the sensitive area of your eyes.

Cucumber Juice

Honey

Mixed with baking soda, it becomes a powerful, yet gentle on the skin makeup remover. The combination works as a wonderful cleanser for your skin.

Milk

Swap the store bought face milk for actual milk to remove makeup naturally. Raw milk on a cotton disc and you’re done! To remove eye makeup, wipe your eyes with a cotton ball dipped in milk, and then rinse your face clean.

Steam

What to Do After Cleansing Your Skin & Removing Makeup?

Now that you have gently removed your make-up and cleansed your skin, you can follow up with any toner, moisturiser, or serums you like to use. When you wake up in the morning, you will be ready to take on the day with squeaky clean skin. All your hard work the night before will pay off when you can jump straight to your sunscreen and day serums, rather than having to start by washing off last night's make-up.

That's right you don't necessarily have to wash your face in the morning if you washed it the night before. Your skin is already clean at this point, and if you suffer from dry skin, washing it the morning can actually further strip the skin of moisture. You don’t need to always wash in the morning, however, are people with oily skin. People with oily skin should wash again in the morning to remove oil buildup from the night before But whatever your skin type, washing at night is a must-do.
