Beauty Hack 101: Natural Make Up Remover

Fed up of using facial wipes to remove your make up? Want to help save the environment? We have a solution as to how you can remove your makeup the natural way!

Baobab and coconut oil have amazing moisturising benefits for the skin, but did you know that they work as oil cleansers too? These two super oils are multi-use and have so many ways of being part of your skincare routine including:

  • Oil cleansing
  • Eye serum
  • Lip gloss or balm
  • Nail cuticle softener
  • Face, hair & body moisturiser
  • Make up remover….and many more

This simple beauty hack is all you need to remove makeup from your face before you begin your nighttime skincare routine:

Let’s start beauty hacking

  1. After washing your hands, pump a small amount of coconut or baobab oil in your palms and rub together.
  2. With your eyes closed, spread the oil onto your face and massage your skin in a circular motion - make sure the oil is evenly distributed across your face.
  3. Rinse your face with warm water to wipe away the oil, then use a clean face towel to dab dry. Alternatively, you can use cotton pads to wipe away the excess oil before rinsing – both work just fine!
  4. Your make up is removed and your skin is moisturised!
