Hence here I am writing to you the remedies to remove makeup naturally with the ingredients easily available in one’s kitchen and help the skin sustain its natural texture.

  1. Oils: Olive, Coconut

This simple ingredient does wonders on skin and not only helps in healthy hair growth but is excellent makeup removals.  You don’t even need to mix it with any ingredient it’s just the oil which does all work. The greasy and moisturizing effect easily removes both eyes as well as facial makeup and leaves out a glowing skin.  You MUST READ THIS ARTICLE on Benefits of Coconut oil!


Pour a small quantity of olive, coconut or baby oil in a cotton ball and wipe it all around your face.

Firstly remove the eye makeup and then take another cotton ball to wipe out further.

  1. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a miraculous creation of nature which carries numerous medicinal as well as skin benefits. Used in almost every beauty product this ingredient not only removes pimples and dullness but also helps to remove makeup. One should definitely spare some part of their garden for planting it.


Extract some aloe vera pulp mix it with some olive oil and apply it all over your face giving a gentle massage to it and then wipe off using some cotton or a fresh facial wipe.

 Honey and baking soda

The easily available ingredient removes any kind of makeup easily. I personally use it a lot for removing makeup and the results are always satisfactory.


Take some little quantity of honey in a bowl and sprinkle some baking soda to it. Mix it well and give a soft hand scrub to your face with the ingredients. Rinse off with water and pat dry. It will remove all your makeup leaving out an exfoliating skin.

  1. Milk or yogurt

Milk has been used as a cleansing agent since the ancient time where people even used to take bath with it using it in place of soaps. Even today cleansing products and lotions carry a good quantity of milk in it. Yogurt which is again a product extracted from milk carries the same characteristics with an extra moisturizing element in it. The proteins and fats in milk and it’s product hydrate the skin at the same time helps retain moisture. If you are not using hard makeup it’s the cheaper and simple method to remove makeup.


Pour some milk or yogurt in a bowl use some cotton ball dip it into the bowl beginning with removing the eye makeup and then the rest of the makeup then wash your face with lukewarm water.

 Gram flour scrub

There is no other ingredient which would give you as instantaneous results as gram flour scrub which not only cleanses the skin but also leaves out brighten up and soft skin when used with yogurt and a pinch of turmeric powder. Usually, it’s good to use after an initial cleansing with milk or oil. See more HERE.


Take two to three tablespoon of gram flour to add a pinch of turmeric powder to it make a smooth paste adding yogurt. Scrub your face with the face and rinse off with water. You will be left with a clean, fresh and smooth skin.

  1. Homemade Rose Water Toner

The gorgeous flower carries essence which when used even makes the skin look delightful. One should avoid using the chemical based toner which destroys skin quality and replaces it with rose water toner which gives massive good results without causing any side effect. See more floral waters HERE.


Collect some fresh rose petals add it with some distilled water on a pot and heat it on a medium flame. Let it simmer until the petal loses its natural color or gets faded. Stain the mixture to get pure rose water without any residue and store it in a spray bottle. The rose water will give you a lovely fragrance and easily removes makeup.

  1. Steam

Steam is a process being used in a various beauty salon and even at home by many for opening up skin pores and removing dirt from the face. Many times it’s hard to believe how just water steam can do so much to the skin but yes! It does. Steam is an excellent way to remove makeup without using any additional material to it. Though teenagers should avoid using much steam on their face as it can loosen up their skin before age.


Just fill up a big bowl with hot water and lean over it for a few minutes covering it with a towel from above so that the steam does not evaporate easily and gets over your skin. It will help remove the makeup traces from the skin.

Enjoy makeup but don’t forget to feel fresh and natural.
