Every woman who’s at least once worn waterproof mascara or a waterproof lipstick will know how difficult it is to remove it. Now, most women use commercial makeup removers, but this are not only costly, but are also filled with chemicals that may irritate more sensitive skin.
Luckily, there’s one common ingredient that you probably already have in your kitchen, which can help you remove waterproof makeup in only one move; it’s olive oil. However, not many know that this common kitchen ingredient has amazing uses outside the kitchen too.
You’ve just come back from a party, a date or another important event and you’ve been wearing your favorite waterproof lipstick for several hours already. If you suddenly lost your makeup remover glove or you’ve run out of your makeup remover, don’t panic. Just grab a cotton ball, dab it in some olive oil and remove your makeup in one move.
You’ll be amazed at the effect as olive oil is just as efficient, if not more, as commercial makeup removers. On the plus side, it brings additional benefits as it also nourishes your skin making it soft and smooth.
Once you try this simple method, you’ll never go back to your old routine of removing makeup. You’ll even forget about makeup remover gloves or expensive makeup removers with essential oils that regenerate the skin around your eyes. You’ll even forget about facial soap as it doesn’t remove makeup effectively.
The only ingredient you’ll stick to for removing makeup, including waterproof mascara or lipstick, is already in your kitchen. If you find olive oil aroma a bit too strong for you, you can replace it with castor oil as it’s just as effective.
