Our skin needs to maintain what is called a good PH balance, in order to look and feel healthy. But what on earth IS a PH balance? Put simply, a PH balance is when your skin displays the perfect balance of acidity and alkalinity. Besan brings your PH level back to normal. Just add 2 tablespoons of besan and 1 tablespoon of malai to a bowl. These go really well together. Then squeeze in a few drops of lemon. Apply this smoothly on, and wash off with warm water in 20-30 minutes. Try to do this once or twice a week. Besan gets rid of dead-skin cells by absorbing impurities from the skin and taking them on itself. Pretty saintly, don’t you think? Just mix a little over a tablespoon with a teaspoon of curd, together with the juice of 1 lemon and add just a pinch of turmeric, to help even out the patchiness. Make this a week long regime to see results! Besan works wonders for this, as it sucks out the extra grease from the skin, and dries up all the excess oil. So you want to start by taking 2 teaspoons of besan, and mixing them in with 1 teaspoon of Multani Mitti, which is also really helpful with unclogging pores and filtering out excess oil. Lastly, add a 2-3 drops of rose water to top it off. Mix this well and apply it to your skin, then let it rest for 20-30 minutes before washing it off with warm water.
