Instead of picking up products to remove makeup, head to your pantry for natural alternatives. From coconut oil to glycerine and rose water, there are many options, says eco warrior and green entrepreneur Sahar Mansoor, whose personal go-to makeup remover and cleanser is coconut oil. “This all-in-one ingredient is powerful in dislodging makeup and yet it is gentle. It effectively removes makeup and cleanses while refreshing your skin. The oil helps capture and lift away dirt, oil, and makeup without any harsh rubbing,” says Sahar.
