Rosewater ACV Make-up Remover and Toner.

Okay, so I know this is not a post about curly hair, but it does use products I bought for hair recipes! I have created a DIY make-up remover and facial toner. I really like this stuff as, making my own beauty products is the dream, it is 100% natural, so very cheap, chemical free and it works really well. 

Rosewater is known for being a great cleanser, is anti-inflammatory, an impurifier and is good for sensitive skin, whilst ACV is known for its ability to balance the skins PH level. Both also are known to work well as make-up removers. My skin is fairly oily and has quite a lot of scarring and I have found that using this has really helped with the oil and breakouts. I am not sure if it has helped the scarring, I would probably say yes but it may just be because they are getting a chance to heal now!

1Tbsp Rosewater.
1Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar.
2 Tsp of Water 

Mix all of the ingredients together and use with cotton wool pads/balls to clean the skin. I use this both in the morning as a toner and also as a facial make-up remover. It makes the skin feel nice and clean without the burning of alcohol laden toners and removers I have used in the past. There is a little tingle from the ACV but it is more invigorating than burning. 

Obviously this is not suitable for eye make-up removal, but I do have a natural alternative. I use coconut oil to remove my eye-makeup, its economical, natural, very effective and good for the skin. Remember the skin around your eyes is thinner than on the rest of your face so requires more moisture and care, making coconut oil a really beneficial choice.

This recipe is just a guide as it works for my skin. You may need to adjust the amounts slightly for your skin type to see the best results. If you have dry skin I would not recommend this recipe as ACV can be quite drying. I would also recommend using moisturiser after using this recipe.

Do you have any DIY beauty recipes?

Let me know!
