Where I can, I try to use natural products on my skin. As a ginger, I always seemed to have really sensitive skin growing up, and had no choice but to choose more natural beauty products. Since learning a bit more about why it’s maybe better for my overall health to use natural products, and the dangers of the chemical filled alternatives, I’ve been finding some creative ways to go au naturel. My favorite (and simple) tricks lately have been…
1. Using Olive Oil to Remove Makeup
Simply dab some everyday olive oil onto a cotton ball or cotton pad, and press onto your eye lid, holding for 10 seconds to let oil break down your makeup. Rub once or twice to really get everything off, and repeat on both eyes. Afterwards, wash your face with your favorite face wash, or simply splash with water to remove excess oil.
2. DIY Bronzer
The other day I happened to come across this YouTube video for DIY Organic Bronzer, and I thought, “why not, I’ll give it a try.” Turns out it’s fantastic! The recipe is so simple, and chances are you have all the ingredients in your kitchen cupboards already. It works like a charm!
