Having sensitive skin means a bit of extra effort in your skincare and make-up routine. You must use products that are suitable for sensitive skin and won’t lead to breakouts and irritation. There is nothing that can replace natural ingredients. Removing make-up using chemically laden products will only leave you with dry, irritated skin. Here are ways to make natural make-up remover at home.

1. Oil remover

Mix olive oil with coconut oil or a mix of any other facial oil that suits your skin. Soak in a few balls of cotton and use it as required. You can keep the jar in the fridge for a cooling effect.

2. Milk remover

Plain milk can be just as powerful a make-up remover. All you need to do is dip cotton balls in it and wipe your face with it. It will clean your face and leave it moisturised. Use cold milk if possible, as it will refresh your skin right away after a long day.

3. Baking soda and honey

Mix baking soda with honey and a little bit of water till it forms a thin paste. Dip cotton or clean cloth and wipe away your makeup

4. Steam

If you have enough time, use steam to remove make-up from your skin. It is effective in cleaning the pores, too and has many other benefits. However, taking too much steam isn’t advisable as it will open up your pores unnecessarily.

5. Shea butter

Melted shea butter works as an excellent make-up remover. Leaving you with moisturised skin, shea butter has a lot of skin benefits, as well.


Get luscious lips this winter!

Don’t let the moisture seep out from your lips. From the very turn of the season, make sure to scrub and hydrate them regularly. Make it a night ritual to moisturise them the entire night to relax, and repair for the day to come. Another way of preventing damage to your pour is to save them from exessive products. Lip colours have different chemicals in them which can cause dryness to your lips. Save a bold pout for the formal meetups. For home and work everyday, simply use a tinted balm that would give your lips a hint of colour, moisture and nourishment, all at the same time!
