From micellar water to fancy deep-cleansing products—the skincare market surely has a huge variety of skin cleansers or make-up removers to offer. However, we’ve always stressed on natural remedies for skincare and overall health and so here we are, offering options for a natural make-up remover.

These ingredients aren’t just easily available and effective, but they can also nourish your skin and benefit it in more ways than one. Here, check ‘em out:

1. Milk
Lactic acid is an active ingredient in milk and as per a study conducted in 2014, this acid can deep cleanse the pores of your skin and free them of the dirt, dust, and make-up remnants that can clog them otherwise.

Not to mention, the presence of other nutrients such as vitamin A, D, B12, B6, biotin, potassium, and calcium—in milk—can nourish and moisturise your skin and prevent wrinkles too.

All you need to do is to dip a cotton pad/ball in milk and wipe your face gently as you do with your regular cleanser. In the end, just let the milk be on your face for 10 minutes before you wash it off with your face wash and follow it up with the application of a moisturizer.
