So you’ve decided to use more natural products in your skincare routine. Yay! Did you know that the skin is our largest organ? It’s especially important to be careful with what we put on our skin because what goes on our skin can penetrate directly into our bloodstream. So, where should you start? If you’ve already switched to 100% Natural Cotton Dry Wipes from KubWipes then you’re ahead of the curve. Premium, ultra-soft cotton with no added chemicals, fragrances or other toxic ingredients leaves your skin clean and happy. Our silky wipes are changing the way people view skincare and we want to help you get even more out of your KubWipes.
Our plant-based, biodegradable wipes are the perfect addition to your morning and nighttime cleansing routines. With just water, you can remove makeup, dirt, sweat and other impurities of the day with the silkiest, softest texture your skin will love. People are amazed at how much makeup our wipes can remove! Even though our wipes are great at removing 99% of makeup with just water, for some of us waterproof loving mascara wearers, we may need a little extra boost.
So, here are our 3 favorite natural and simple DIY skincare remedies to use with your KubWipes for makeup removal and natural cleansing.
Coconut oil has been all the rage the past few years in many health and beauty routines for a number of reasons. It’s a good fat, (go ahead and add a spoonful to your coffee!) it’s ultra-hydrating, (great for moisturizing after a shower) and it’s 100% natural! We’ve found coconut oil to be the perfect addition to any beauty routine as nearly everyone has it in their cupboards so it’s the perfect DIY beauty product. Using oil to cleanse and treat oily skin may sound counterintuitive but oil attracts oil and dissolves it so using coconut oil on oil-based products like waterproof mascara works a treat. Grab a corner of your Premium Cotton Dry KubWipe, dip it in the coconut oil, and lightly dab and wipe away the remnants of your eye makeup. Use another dry corner of your wipe to wipe off the excess and finally wet the wipe and rinse with water. It’s that easy!
Honey is another fantastic natural remedy for the skin as it is naturally antimicrobial (just like KubWipes!) and its sticky texture helps remove dead skin cells that can block pores and cause acne and breakouts. Honey has been used for thousands of years as an anti-aging remedy as it’s a natural preservative with humectant or moisture-retaining effects that keep your skin soft, supple, and smooth. There are many recipes for natural honey scrubs and masks but we like to use raw, unfiltered honey applied directly to the skin for the full benefits of nature´s wonder. Apply honey as you would a cleanser in your nighttime routine, allow a few minutes for it to soak in, and then rinse clean. Grab a 100% Natural Cotton Dry Wipe to pat your face clean and wake up to glowing and healthy skin!
Our last and final natural DIY hack is with the infamous Witch Hazel. Witch Hazel is a natural anti-inflammatory with antioxidant properties which makes it ideal for sensitive and acne-prone skin. As an astringent, Witch Hazel helps shrink pores and reduce inflammation. To add Witch Hazel into your cleansing and makeup removal routine we recommend creating a diluted solution of 50% Witch Hazel and 50% water. Dip a corner of your KubWipe 100% Natural Cotton Dry Wipe into your homemade solution and apply to the face in upward, circular motions. Allow the solution a few moments to soak in and then wet the same KubWipe with clean water and remove all excess solution. All steps easily combined into one large, eco-friendly and ultra-soft wipe.
If you want to a live cleaner and healthier life, taking a look at the products (and toxic ingredients) you use in your skincare routine can be a good place to start. Making small changes to your daily routine can have big effects on your skin and your health in the future.
