Minutes to get brighten up- Besan-turmeric -yogurt face pack for a glowing skin
I’m again on with another blog. This time I won’t be concentrating on a product review but on a DIY. I don’t visit beauty parlors very often as I generally like to stick on some home remedies that are not only beneficial for my skin but also friendly to my budget. The products I use can be used throughout the year as they don’t usually harm the skin. Me, having an excessive oily skin know the pain of having it as I cannot put on a makeup for a long, it gets oiled away : (. If I put on kajal, it gets smudged off. I also sweat a lot, so sometimes it gets me black patches on neck and shoulder. I had a pimple once on my left cheek about 2 years back, but still I was worried about it as it left some embarrassing black mark on my cheek that I wanted to get rid of. I tried various anti-marks cream but it didn’t at all work. I almost lost hope that this mark is going to be my lifetime-companion. I went through some bleaching elements as well but I ended up having more pimples, finding out harsh bleaches are not at all made for me. Then my neighboring aunty suggested me to apply BESAN on my skin. Besan or gram flour is an easily available kitchen element. I had heard about its skin friendly features but never tried it, so I thought of giving it a try. I started trying on a home remedy using Gram Flour as its base, accompanying unsweetened yogurt and turmeric.
Adding rose water into it would also be good but as I wasn’t having it at that moment, I went on without it.
Directions: I used Gram Flour as its base. Gram Flour or besan is nothing but a powdered dust made of chickpea. The making of this facepack can be sequenced as following:
- Take some Besan in a bowl, depending on the area you want to apply this pack.
- Add some unsweetened curd to it. Don’t take too much in quantity as it’ll get runny.
- Add a pinch of turmeric powder, best if homemade turmeric can be used.
- You can add half teaspoon of honey if you wish.
- You can even improvise this pack adding a few drops of lemon juice to it. I avoided it as I’m allergic to harsh citrus.
- Mix them altogether to make a smooth paste, apply it on your face, neck, elbow(if you have problem of darkened elbow).
- Let it dry for 12-15 minutes.
- Wash off.
You can follow this application with a toner and a moisturizer to avoid drying up your skin. Apply this method twice or thrice a week.
