Most of us have had our dadis and nanis teach us all about economical, effective skincare; mostly DIYs that they’d whip up for us on weekends. Tara Sutaria’s go-to DIY comes from her grandmother as well. Composed of 4 ingredients — yogurt, honey, turmeric, and chickpea flour — it’s perfect for any and everyone looking to indulge in some T.L.C.
Though most of us are fairly familiar with yogurt, honey, and turmeric, there’s one ingredient that does much of the weightlifting in this DIY: chickpea flour. Here’s why it’s such a boon for the skin.
It Can Treat Acne
Because it contains zinc, chickpea is effective at eliminating acne-causing bacteria and controlling the production of sebum on the skin. This is why it’s a sought-after remedy for flare-ups.
It Can Exfoliate & Brighten
Another fact about chickpea is that it exfoliates the face gently to reveal newer, healthier skin underneath. Because of this ability. it can lighten spots, scars, lines, and pigmentation all at the same time.
It Can Delay Signs Of Ageing
Chickpea contains quite a lot of magnesium too. Magnesium is one such compound that balances the amount of fatty acids in the body; essentially responsible for the suppleness, elasticity, and hydration of the skin. The more fatty acids, the firmer and tighter the skin and the younger you look.
It Can Soothe Eczema
It’s soothing for the skin because it has anti-inflammatory properties; making it ideal for those dealing with eczema. It can treat inflammation and redness without irritating the skin further.
It Can Induce A Glow
The iron and copper present in chickpea boosts blood circulation to the face. This supplies more oxygen and nutrients to the cells; making your skin look radiant and youthful in no time.
Tip: Tara simply keeps the mask on for about 15 to 20 minutes for a quick glow-up.
I know I’m doing this over the weekend!
