Let’s talk makeup removal

Aside from being passionate about nutrition, my interest include pure beauty products. I think most of us (girls) are so used to makeup that we never take a step back and question what we’re really putting on our skin. Because that’s what we’re doing. We’re putting stuff on our skin. Our skin being the biggest organ of our body and the stuff being toxins. Yet we wonder why we keep breaking out.

Instead of curing the problem from it’s origin, we buy another product to help the problem. It’s a bit of an evil downward spiral. When I first started looking at my makeup with a critical eye I was surprised by how much sense it really makes to use natural products. I woke up one morning with a terrible rash. I had borrowed a product from a friend and gone to bed without washing it off. My skin had reached badly. Other than blackheads, varying oiliness and a few pimples now and then, I haven’t had many problems with my skin. But in this situation I got my eyes up. My sensitive and inflamed skin made me hesitate with using any of my product. It didn’t seem right to “intoxicate” my skin like that.

I thought “huh, If I wouldn’t use this on my skin now that it’s vulnerable, why should I every other day?” I looked into it.

Now I use this lovely thing right here every night. Organic coconut oil. I use this primarily on my eyes, but also on the rest of the face. I rub it carefully on my closed eyes and wipe it off with a cloth soaked in hot water. Easy, natural and super effective! The more you massage it into your skin, for example your forehead, the better. You can combine this with leaving the cloth on your face for one minute for a deeper cleanse. What’s exciting it that my eyelashes feel longer and stronger, and my skin barely breaks out at all anymore. Go nature! IMG_6950

If I want to cleanse my skin a little extra, or if I wake up feeling a little oily, I use this baby. It smells deliciously like almonds and always leaves my skin feeling fresh. I use both coconut oil and this cleansing lotion on my skin, but stick to coconut oil on my eyes.

  1. I use coconut oil to remove my eye makeup, eyebrow makeup, and any stubborn lip makeup. My routine is by no means 100% natural but this step is!! And it has made my lashes and brows so healthy. I try to use a natural mascara on a daily basis (others make my lashes fall out, how sad), and combined with the oil, my lashes are looking stellar! I can’t recommend it enough! Thanks for this informative post. It is a goal of mine to replace my empties of 2015 with natural, safe products.

    1. Thats amazing to hear! Switching out the products you use the most on a daily basis if a great way to start. I started with makeup remover, shampoo + conditioner, then deodorant and moisturizer. Buying clean prosucts when the old ones are empty is super. Ill be bloggingg about my dental – and my hair routines soon :) I love your goal for the new year. Happy holidays!
