  • Milk  ( both the ingredients in equal proportion )


Mix both the ingredients in a bowl and make a thick paste of it. Apply this paste of gram flour and milk to the unwanted hair and leave it for 15 minutes. You can also wait until it becomes dry. Using your fingers, scrub off the paste and try removing the mixture from your face. Once the scrubbing part is over, wash it with warm water. Repeat the process every alternate day for best results. The mixture can also be prepared by using water or yogurt instead.
