Natural Ingredients to Remove Makeup

But what about all the makeup that has been sitting on your face for the entire day?

And guess what, creating your own natural makeup remover is as simple as ABC. Here we have come up with few such simple and natural makeup removers that require maximum two ingredients to create. So let’s check them out!

Dab this onto the face with cotton ball and then remove it off with fresh cotton balls. Make sure no trace of milk is left. Besides removing all the makeup from your face, this quick makeup remover will leave the face refreshed.
