Homemade treatments can be very effective. Just remember: Whenever you use natural ingredients or ingredients from your fridge, you should always do a little patch test on your skin first.

Eye-Makeup Remover: Olive or Grapeseed Oil

If you run out of eye-makeup remover, look to your kitchen for the solution. Olive or grapeseed oil can be very effective for this purpose. These gentle natural oils break down the solids in mascara, and they nourish the delicate eye area at the same time. Personally, I also believe oil helps condition the lashes and makes them grow longer and stronger, adding a little love to your lid!
As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
