Have you ever had one of those nights where you don't want to remove your makeup? Me too, sis — me too. This may seem like a good idea at the time, but not removing our makeup at night can lead to clogged pores, breakouts, not to mention a dull, dry complexion.  

But, we shouldn't use just anything. A harsh makeup remover can dehydrate our skin and damage our moisture barrier. So finding a natural alternative might be an excellent move.

When the night is over, don’t forget to take off all the extra contour and eyeliner with one of these all natural makeup removers.

1. Coconut oil

Coconut oil should always be a part of our beauty routine. The natural oil works as a moisturizer, hair treatment, cooking staple and it is even an effective makeup remover.
