We've all seen what it looks like when you don't wash your makeup off for a month. (Trust us, nothing about this bad habit is pretty.) Going to bed without giving our skin a thorough scrub is never an option for us, but gardener and florist Sara Wells prefers to do things her way.
"I have a rule: I don't wash my face," said Wells. "And to get my makeup off, I use apricot oil. I put it on a cotton ball and gently rub my mascara to remove it. Then, because I look like a giant mess, I have to do it again until it's all off."
Wells may not realize this but the apricot oil is, in fact, cleansing. The hydrating oil breaks down dirt and debris and makes wiping away build-up so much easier. No wonder her skin is positively glowing!
