There are several makeup removal methods & products, but a majority of them fail to their job properly. At times, these methods/products just don’t do their job properly, and you need to use force to make them do their job. Using extra force with makeup removers that don’t provide any nourishing benefits simply damage our skin and mess up the pH balance needed for skin to stay healthy. Though, oil-based makeup removers are a good alternative to remove stubborn makeup, but there is a better option available now.
If you are looking for a method that is believed to get rid of all traces of makeup, even the stubborn waterproof kind and also keep your skin healthy and moisturized, try this new makeup cleansing trend – makeup removing balm.
Makeup cleansing balms are solid and not liquid like other makeup removers. These balms are made of a blend of skin friendly oils, emulsifiers & wax. While removing makeup, Makeup Cleansing Balms cleanse skin, moisturize it, and help maintain the much needed healthy pH balance. Read on for a DIY recipe.
If you are interested in trying out this new makeup cleansing trend but don’t want to spend money on a COSTLY cleansing balm available in the market, you can try this Homemade makeup cleansing balm recipe.
