As soon as Divyanka is home, the first thing she does is use oil to get rid of stubborn makeup, dirt and other impurities. Oil cleansers break down makeup and sebum and lift impurities, allowing you to wipe them away. After washing your hands, massage olive or organic coconut oil on a dry face using your fingertips for a few minutes. Then, take a cotton pad and gently wipe it off. This is a good trick to use if you’re out of a cleanser or want to take that stubborn waterproof makeup off in one go.


2. Prefers double-cleansing
