Natural Makeup Remover Wipes DIY for Healthy Skin

Natural Makeup Remover Wipes

These natural makeup remover wipes are super easy to make with just a few simple supplies that you probably already have at home. If you’re looking for a simple makeup wipes DIY, you’re in luck. There’s nothing complicated about this at all.

Biodegradeable makeup wipes

These wipes are made with paper towels so they are biodegradable and will break down in your compost pile or the landfill if you prefer. You can use your favorite brand of paper towels. It doesn’t really matter as long as they feel soft on your skin. You can also start with an eco-friendy paper towel if you prefer.

If you prefer to make reusable makeup whites, you can start with cotton rounds instead of using paper towels. You will need to wash them in between uses. When I do this, I just toss them in with my towels and washcloths.

How long will homemade makeup wipes stay good?

If you store these natural makeup remover wipes in the refrigerator, they should stay good for about two weeks. Please do not leave them on the counter at room temperature. There are no preservatives so it’s important to keep them cool to prevent the growth of bacteria.

Makeup remover ingredients

You will need the following ingredients to make these natural makeup remover wipes. 

½ roll high-quality paper towels or reusable cotton rounds
Scissors, if needed
Plastic container with lid, for storing
1 teaspoon tea tree oil, optional (for fragrance and antibacterial properties)
1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin, optional (for moisturizing)
2 cups distilled water
1 ½ cup 70% to 99% isopropyl alcohol

Different fragrance options

Tea tree oil is a wonderful choice if you suffer from acne because it has anti-bacterial properties. But, if you prefer you can use a different type of essential oil in your natural makeup remover wipes. Here are a few to consider.

  • Orange (uplifting)
  • Peppermint (energizing)
  • Lavender (calming)
  • Rose (pampering)

If you prefer an unscented makeup remover, you can simply leave the essential oils out completely. They are not required.

the process to make natural makeup remover wipes

As I mentioned, you can use cotton rounds instead of the paper towels if you want a zero-waste makeup remover.  Or, you could easily use a roll of toilet paper if you would rather not cut a roll of paper towels in half. Just make sure that they are heavy-duty so they don’t fall apart when you use them.

  1. Paper towels can be cut in half with a serrated knife. Trim any rough edges with scissors.
  2. Remove paper towels from the roll and fan-fold at the perforations, alternating to create a stack.
  3. Place the stack on paper towels into a plastic container.
  4. Cut a hole in the lid if needed.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine water, alcohol, tea tree oil, and vegetable glycerin.
  6. Pour over paper towels.
  7. Place the lid over the container and allow paper towels to soak up the liquid.
