Natural Makeup Remover

Our old trusty friend... coconut oil! Can you tell we're a huge fan of this stuff?

It works better than any makeup remover I have ever used, especially with the black eyes I get from my mascara.  It's cleansing and moisturizing - all in one!

To start, rub coconut oil on your eyes, lips, or all over your face.  Then, take a warm washcloth and let it sit on your face for a bit.  This will help to melt away any excess oil.  I usually do this a couple times, then wipe everything clean. All the makeup will magically disappear!

It makes your skin super smooth and refreshed. Plus, an added bonus of being very nourishing to your eyelashes too. A win, win!

Homemade Face Wash + My Beauty Routine

Some of you may have heard of Bronner's Magic Soap, or seen in it in the store but have no idea what to do with it.  That used to be me too!

Bronner's is a castile soap which is made of natural oils and essential oils.  They make all different kinds ranging from peppermint to eucalyptus to lavender to unscented.  On the bottle is says it has 18 different uses, however one of my favorite uses is for face wash! It leaves my face feeling very clean and like there is no left over residue.  It lasts forever and you don't need to use very much at all.

I use a small squirt bottle and fill it half way up with the liquid Bronner's and half up with water.  I just need one pump for my face, so my mixture lasts forever!  It lathers up great and makes my face feel so clean.  It’s great for people with normal to oily skin, but may not be the best for those with dry skin.

Three times a week I use the exfoliating face wash by Beautycounter. I find that it makes my face super smooth and helps to get rid of the dead skin. You don’t have to use it every day, but it is a good addition to your weekly beauty routine. (P.S. all Beautycounter products are amazing!)

And don't forget to moisturize! Coconut oil is a great moisturizer, or Beautycounter has some great options as well.
