DIY Eye Makeup Remover|Lash Strengthening Ingredients:
Finding an effective, yet gentle, eye makeup remover comes with a lot of trial and error, not to mention loads of cash. There are a bunch of recipes out there on the internet touting to be great homemade eye makeup removers; but, are gentle and safe to use around the eye area?
Many of eye makeup removers that you can purchase in-store are filled with horrible ingredients. The ones that aren’t, well, are very pricey. If you look at the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Rating on these ingredients, you will see that you really don’t want to be putting this on your eyes (a rating of zero is the best that you can get. As the numbers go higher, the ingredient is most likely more problematic.
This recipe has only two ingredients and costs a fraction of what you would pay for an oil makeup remover.
- 4 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 3 TBSP Almond Oil
- 1/2 Cup Purified Water (just boil tap water and allow to cool)
Mix all ingredients in a travel sized lotion container and shake well. That’s it!! Super cheap and easy.
Olive oil breaks down any water-resistant substances in eye makeup, allowing them to be wiped away more easily.
Did you know that Olive oil contains a very large amount of antioxidants so it is a great choice for applying to your skin? It has many nutritional benefits when consumed, but it is also frequently applied to the skin and hair. When applied to the skin, antioxidants may prevent premature aging which is why it is my go-to choice for an eye makeup remover. It also is a popular natural moisturizer that is often used to soften both skin and hair.
I use this makeup remover nightly and swear by it. it not only removes my eye makeup easily, but it also nourishes my eye area and keeps it looking fresh and hydrated throughout the night.
