Natural Makeup Removers are so easy to get, though they are less known. I have a couple favorites which work well for all skin types. You may shake your head in surprise when I tell you what they are.
But first, what’s a “natural” make up remover?
It is one made with completely natural ingredients as opposed to a long list of synthetic ingredients that dry out your skin, robbing it of nutrients and causing other annoying issues such as red, flaky, itchy skin.
The natural makeup removers I personally use and love are Organic Jojoba and Apricot Oil. The nice thing about these oils is they are gentle on the skin and they easily remove all types of makeup while leaving your skin feeling soft and silky.
An additional benefit to having a gentle yet effective natural makeup remover is you no longer have to tug or harshly rub your skin to remove makeup, which in itself can cause premature lines and wrinkles to form.
Jojoba and Apricot Oil are both extremely effective at removing makeup and loaded with nutrients that nourish your skin, but which is best for you? Here is more information on each:
Apricot Oil is a light, delicate carrier oil that moisturizes dry, sensitive skin. It is packed with vitamins and antioxidants that help diminish fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. It is also well known for restoring natural skin radiance and decreasing puffiness and dark circles.
Apricot Oil is popular for the fact that it is easily absorbed into the skin leaving no greasy residue. It comes from the center of the apricot kernel and has been used for centuries in health and beauty for its amazing skin and hair benefits.
This oil has a very mild nutty smell and is light yellow in color. It is great for sensitive, dry and mature skin types.
Jojoba Oil is packed with nourishing properties that moisturize the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. It is well known for having a composition that closely resembles sebum, the naturally created substance in human skin which helps to keep it moisturized. For this reason it is easily accepted and safe for all skin types. It is also popular for helping balance oily skin to restore its natural moisture and complexion.
Jojoba Oil does not leave a greasy residue once absorbed by the skin. It is extracted from the seeds of the Simmondsia Chinensis botanical (also known as the Jojoba Plant). This oil is a golden color with a mild nutty scent. It is non-comedogenic so does not clog pores and is safe for all skin types.
How Effective Are They?

I hope this helps you. I know for many years I spent money on makeup removers only to discover they irritated my skin or did not work. This is a simple, healthy and inexpensive solution which I really wanted to share with you. Please leave a comment below with your feedback and any questions you may have.
