Ditch the Chemicals! Natural Ways to Remove Makeup

The sun is already harsh on the skin, so using a chemical-laden soap doesn’t jump out as a safe way to remove our makeup. Instead, we’ve been on the hunt for simple, natural ways to remove makeup without the chemical additives. Here’s what we’ve come up with so far.
