Here are two of my favourite recipes for you to try at home!
All Natural Make up Remover
This recipe is very basic and consists only of almond oil. Yep, that’s it!
I pour a little almond oil onto a reusable cotton pad and wipe over my make up. Its amazing and removes even stubborn water-proof mascara!
Being very gentle I have no issues using it on the soft skin around my eyes because it causes no irritation whatsoever.
Try it – you’ll be amazed what light work it makes of stubborn make up!
This recipe I stumbled upon quite by accident when I tipped some witchazel accidentally into a bowl
Without realising I had created a delightful all in one cleansing and toning milk that is gentle, effective and actually very nourishing for my skin.
To make simply mix equal parts pure liquid castile soap with Witchazel distillate (simply known as “Witchazel”). Shake vigoursly until combined and you will see it takes on a milky white colour.
Simply pour a little onto a make up pad and wipe over your face, neck and décolletage for a quick, thorough and very gentle cleansing and toning routine, all in one!
You can of course add things to these recipes – I like to add a dash of Rosewater to my cleansing milk as it provides a wonderful, soothing “lift” for my skin and my morning mood.
I also add a tiny amount of Lavandula Officinalis oil to my all-natural make up remover, because it soothes my often inflamed or red skin and provides protection against interesting air-borne bacteria (I have sensitive skin).
Try these at home and tell me how you like them :)
