Guapura 101: Use Olive Oil To Remove Makeup, Exfoliate

By Dania Zarate, La Beauty Pie

It’s the new year — time for a fresh start, for new goals for resolutions and kicking bad habits out of our lives. I would like to share a habit that I would love for you to incorporate into your daily beauty routine, that will help you clear up your skin, avoid premature wrinkles and just make your skin look and feel soft.

What is it, you ask…? Washing your face daily, exfoliating at least twice a week and always, always taking your makeup off before going to bed. Plus, it’s not cute waking up in the morning with makeup all over your face and pillow. Eeewww!

Now this economy is leaving a lot of us pressed for cash, so if you’re like my mom and you would rather buy beans and rice before buying that name brand makeup remover or face scrub, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a fresh face and skip on this routine. There is no excuse.

You can easily make a face scrub and remover with the ingredients you have in your kitchen cabinet. A simple easy kitchen ingredient is olive oil. You can use it to remove your makeup use with a cotton pad. Sweep it over eyes and all over face and — presto! Makeup will come off as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Also, you can add brown or white sugar to the olive oil, along with a few tablespoons of milk make a paste, and in circular motions work throughout your face its a great cheap scrub for your face — even your feet!

So let’s kick start this year with a fresh face with new good for you habits make this year a great one. Oh yeah, before I forget, please always use an SPF and drink lots and lots of agua! I can’t stress that enough. ‘Til next time!
