It’s no secret that coconut oil has an insane amount of uses and can be found in any supermarket for a very inexpensive price! Coconut oil is edible oil extracted from the kernel of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. This is one of those products that most people have laying around at home already and is used for cooking, health benefits, hair and even beauty uses… but have you ever thought of using coconut oil to remove your make-up? Instead of using harsh make-up wipes to remove all your make-up off at the end of the day, just grab your tub of coconut oil and scoop yourself half a teaspoon amount onto your fingertips and gently massage it into your skin.

You will notice how the oil will liquefy as it is massaged into the warmth of your skin, it will start to break down the make-up and essentially ‘melt’ it down without it feeling harsh on your skin! Within a minute you will see how your make-up has easily been lifted out of your skin and is sitting on top mixed with the coconut oil; it will even gently remove your tough mascara! The final steps is to wipe it all off with a damp muslin cloth or simply just wash it off! Don’t forgot to wash your face with a facial cleanser of your choice to ensure all make-up residue is removed. Once your face is dry, use natural products to tone your face, such as rose water and re-store moisture into your skin with a night moisturizer. After using the coconut oil to remove your make-up for quite some time, you’ll also become aware of how your skin is feeling a lot softer and how the areas where you had problems with dry patches become revitalised.
