12 Days of Self-Care: Day Four

When I was a young girl of about thirteen I made a promise to myself that I would never go to bed without washing my face. I can't remember ever sleeping with makeup on. I think it's really made a big difference in my skin. I'm 58, and I still look pretty darn good. There are some nights, though, when I'm just so tired, and I just want to crawl into bed without the whole process of cleaning my face. These Gentle Makeup Remover pads have made that part of my evening routine so much simpler. And the recipe is completely natural without any of the toxic chemicals that store-bought products can have. With only four simple ingredients, these pads remove your makeup so gently and with the soothing benefit of Lavender essential oil. Recipe below:

You will need:

4 ounce jar

2 Tbsp. liquid coconut oil

2 Tbsp. filtered or distilled water

1 Tbsp. Witch Hazel

4 drops Young Living Lavender Essential Oil

Cotton pads

Add all ingredients to jar, and mix well. Place 8-10 cotton pads in jar and press down to soak up liquid. Close lid, and gently shake, and even store upside down for a few hours so that pads can soak up mixture.

To use:

Remove one pad and squeeze out excess liquid baclk into jar. Gently massage on skin to remove makeup.
