After a glammed night out or a long day, all you want to do is fall into bed and shut the world away. However, you still have to take a few minutes to remove the day’s makeup and dirt from your skin. Your skin is very sensitive and keeping it healthy includes finding the right products to make the makeup removal process as natural and seamless as possible. While many commercial makeup removers are abrasive and contain harsh ingredients that strip your skin of essential oils, you can also remove your makeup naturally by using these common household products.
