You may be thinking, WHAT? Body lotion for the face? Well, considering this isn’t going to be something that you will use everyday, it will be fine. It’s a lot better than sleeping with your makeup, anyway. Best to use baby lotion if you are worried of the lotion being to harsh for your skin. If not, any body lotion will do. Pump the lotion onto a cotton pad and wipe away!

Not only is it yummy to eat but strangely, it can also remove makeup! People have been using yogurt to create masks because it will not only remove impurities on your face but leaves your skin feeling soft as well. FYI — use plain, unsweetened yogurt and not the fruity flavoured kind. Simply dip a cotton ball into a bowl of yogurt, wipe it all over your face, wait for a few seconds then rinse well with cold water.
