To remove makeup with olive oil, use cotton pads you can find them at any chemist or supermarket. First, pour olive oil droplets onto the cotton wool pad.


Now, pass the cotton wool pad over the skin starting at the forehead area and go down through the cheekbones, cheeks and up to the neck. It is important to stress, especially on the eyebrows and nostrils. End with the eye area.


When removing makeup, always use circular and smooth movements without pressing the cotton against the skin, to avoid damaging it. If you notice that one cotton wool is not enough or is too damp, use another one to finish removing makeup properly.


To remove eye makeup and protect sensitive skin in this area, a good option is to create a mixture of olive oil infused with thyme, or an olive oil and chamomile base. Both are very effective in removing all traces of mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow and will also serve to reduce inflammation of puffiness and dark circles. Just prepare the infusion and let it cool. Then, soak a cotton ball, add a few drops of olive oil and you're ready to go!
