Okay so maybe your ancestors didn’t wear makeup. Let’s not get hung up on a technicality. BUT if they DID wear makeup, they would have most definitely removed said makeup with the naturalist of products. Please enjoy these natural products that one can use to remove the art we place upon our faces for various occasions, or in these trying times that we’re in, no occasion at all!

Makeup removal is paramount when it comes to maintaining a healthy skin care routine. Way too often, we tend to forget to take off our makeup. This requires just as much time and attention as cleansing and moisturizing. If makeup is not properly removed on a regular basis, this can cause unwanted face marks or acne. If you only leave makeup on overnight from time to time after a night out with friends, don’t panic; you should be safe from harm. However, this should not be a daily occurrence if you want to maintain the health of your skin. There are plenty of different products available that can remove makeup but many contain unnecessary chemicals that are not the best for our skin. Finding a suitable makeup remover can be hard work. Luckily, mother nature has some remedies that are cost efficient, natural and easily accessible. Here is Beauty Bar & Supply’s top two picks.

Baking Soda and Honey

The beauty of this remedy is that it’s good for any skin type. Any kind of honey that’s lying around your kitchen will do. Put a little honey on a piece of cotton or a clean cloth. Sprinkle a small amount of baking soda on the honey. Adding these two natural ingredients will act as a great cleanser and exfoliator, by applying it to your face. Next, rinse the mixture off and just like that, the full face beat you applied for that kickback you went to just hours earlier, is gone in the blink of an eye. Skip the face wash for right now and allow the honey to repair your skin cells overnight.

Grapeseed Oil

Now Grape Seed Oil is last but not least and only comes second to magic itself. It literally swoops the makeup right off and simultaneously moisturizes. Easily absorbable by the skin, it doesn’t clog pores like its cousin coconut oil tends to do at times. It also contains antioxidants and gives your skin a healthy, youthful glow!

In conclusion, TAKE YOUR MAKE UP OFF, so the ancestors will not frown upon you!
