3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Pour liquids into a bottle and shake.
- Apply a small amount to eyelids via cotton ball/square, toilet paper, or cloth.
- Wipe away until no oil remains.
- This should keep for a couple of months, but if you want even longer, add a drop of Vitamin E oil.
- If you don't want to use water, you can use witch hazel (can sting if not careful) or aloe vera juice instead.
2 Vitamin E capsules
1 oz. water
1 Ziploc container
Yes, you can certainly bring favorite 3 oz. remover with you, but if you want something more natural, keep reading:
- A travel size bottle in your hotel room is around 1 oz, so I picture how much water that is as I pour it into my Ziploc.
- Break open the capsules into the bag.
- Seal, shake, and squish the bag to mix the ingredients. I like using the bag instead of a cup since it's easy to mix, and so I can store the homemade cleanser if I'm staying in the hotel a few days.
- Apply to eyes with cotton ball/square, tissue, or cloth. Be sure all traces of remover are gone.
- This is the ratio I use, but feel free to adjust as needed.
N O T E S:
- Feel free to use oils that work for you.
- You can use just Olive, Jojoba, or Coconut Oil, but I like the dilution with the water since straight up oil tends to make my eyes cloudy.
- Baby Wipes--OK, these aren't natural but they're great for removing makeup, and are much cheaper than regular wipes. I've never experienced irritation or breakouts on my sensitive skin.
- Everyone's skin is different, and everyone reacts differently to oils--especially with allergies, so what works for me may not work for you, but what I've shared seems to work for just about everyone.
