DIY Beauty || All-Natural Makeup Removers
“If you use any type of makeup, you must wash it all off before you go to bed at night. Sleeping in your makeup can clog pores (causing breakouts) and sleeping in mascara may even cause lashes to become brittle and fall out! Recently, I have been a bit lazy and my forehead has become a sad battlefield of acne. We’re all guilty of this every once in a while, but with the invention of disposable makeup wipes, there’s really no excuse. And if you’re feeling crafty, a great alternative to store-bought cleansers are natural homemade formulas. With a few ingredients, you can create your very own cleanser that doesn’t contain any preservatives or chemicals. Keep reading for recipes on how to create your own natural makeup removers at home.”

Make your own foaming antibacterial hand soap! It’s easy, too. Only a couple of ingredients!
What you need
- 1 foam soap pump (I reused one from Bath and Body Works)
- 1 c distilled or filtered water
- 2 TBSP Castile Soap
- 1/4 tsp carrier oil. I used Jojoba, but you can use almond, grapeseed, olive, or any carrier oil that stays liquid at room temperature.
- 10 drops Thieves Essential Oil
Add the ingredients to the foaming soap bottle being careful to add the water BEFORE you add the other ingredients.
Shake it a bit and tada! You’re all done. You’re ready to have germ free hands at a fraction of the price of traditional foaming soaps. Yay!!
You may need to lightly shake it if you see the oil settling which is perfectly normal.

It’s vitamin C protects the skin from free radicals and stimulates the production of collagen in your skin, leaving you with soft, rejuvenated-looking skin.

Grapefruit can also help cleanse skin, even out skin tone, and act as a toner… which brings us to these two wonderful recipes for herb-infused grapefruit toner: one for dry skin and one for oily/combination skin.
