3. Goodbye Unwanted Hair
Unwanted hair can be a major beauty problem for many of us, but you can take care of this to a certain extent by using besan. Add a pinch of turmeric powder to one spoon of besan and one spoon of fenugreek powder. Make a thick paste by adding filtered water. Apply the paste on the hairy areas and rub it off in a circular motion when it dries up. Do it no more than twice a week. You can use this mixture on your hands, legs and back too.
Make a paste by adding some raw milk to two spoons of besan. Apply this mixture on your dry skin and let it sit on your skin for half an hour. Wash it off with tap water. You will instantly see the results as your skin would feel supple, soft and nourished. Do this once a week and be wedding ready!
5. Go Scrubbing
Besan can be a wonderful scrub too! Take one spoon of besan, one spoon of oatmeal powder, a few drops of lemon juice and a few drops of honey. Mix them all well and apply on your face and neck. Let it stay till it dries and hardens a bit. Scrub it off by massaging your skin lightly. Do it once a week.
6. Drive Away Oiliness
No, you don’t need those expensive oil-control products to keep your skin shine-free. One spoon of besan, one spoon of multani mitti and some rose water - this is all you need to get rid of that annoying oiliness. Apply this paste on your face and wash it off after 20-30 minutes. Do it once a week.
Acne can spell trouble, especially when there’s a shaadi you’ve got to be a part of. If you’re dealing with acne, fret not, take two spoons of besan and turmeric powder each and add filtered water to it. Make a paste and apply it directly on the acne or pimple with the help of a Q-tip. Let it dry and wash it off with water. Do this twice a day for clear skin this wedding season.
