Why is it important to remove Make-up?
Ironically, almost everyone spends a lot of time putting on makeup on their face to adorn that gorgeous look but when it comes to removing it, very few are actually bothered. Of course, the reason for this can be returning home late from the party or getting tired by the time you return.
However, this small negligence of yours might land up your skin in a big mess in the long run. It is much needed for you to clean your makeup before you go to bed if you want to have healthy skin. Not doing so might expose your skin to the chemicals present in the cosmetics causing damage to your skin.

As such, next time you apply makeup, do not skip removing it. One more important thing is to use natural products for removing your makeup as your skin has already been exposed to the chemicals present in your makeup.
So, try to avoid cleaning your makeup with commercial makeup removal wipes and other makeup removal products.
Rather we are here to share with you a few home remedies/tricks which are safe as well as effective to remove your makeup. These tricks will also give much relief to those having sensitive skin as they can avoid irritation that can be caused otherwise by using commercial wipes or other makeup remover products.
Tricks to remove Make-Up without wipes

2. Usage of Coconut Oil
Well, coconut oil is one such thing that is found in almost every household. Removing makeup using coconut oil is one of the easiest ways. For this, just take a little coconut oil in your palms, spread it all over your hands by rubbing. Then massage on your face and around your eyes gently to remove the makeup in those areas. Coconut oil also hydrates your skin apart from removing makeup. You can also use cotton pads instead of hands to remove makeup by applying coconut oil to them and then gently rubbing them onto your facial makeup. As oil might leave you a bit sticky, you can wash your face with a gentle face wash as the final step.

This one is another simple product found at home and can remove makeup without causing any damage to the skin, particularly around the eyes. For this, you need to clean your hands thoroughly first and then take little petroleum jelly in your palm. Then, apply it slowly around your eye area having makeup using your finger. Once the jelly gets dissolved, you can wipe it off using a cotton pad and later wash your eyes with water.
4. Using a Moisturizer
Just in case you don’t have coconut oil or petroleum jelly at hand, here is another alternative that you will have for sure, a moisturizer. One can apply a moisturizer either with hand or by using a cotton pad gently on the facial makeup. After leaving it for a while, wipe it off using a cotton pad.
