Post Pregnancy my skin lost all its charm, it may be due to the huge hormonal change, Bangalore weather, stress, work pressure, lack of sleep (mother of a toddler). Tried lots of products, some helped and some didn’t. The glow was still missing. So finally thought of putting an end on wasting all my money on those magic products, which are actually of no use and stick to my kitchen recipes. As kids our mother was strictly against the use of chemical products and had always encouraged the use of easily available kitchen products.
The DIY, which I am going to share today is what I am using every day and within 3-4 days I did see a change in myself.
2. Milk Powder
3. Turmeric (optional)
Mix besan and milk powder in equal quantities and little turmeric, again if you want to. Then pass the mixture through a sieve several times. This ensures a uniform mixture and as well removes any hard unwanted particles. You can store this mixture in any air-tight container and keep it for future use.
I have kept it in my bath room and everyday use it at least twice. Once in the morning and once before going to bed, following it up with a moisturizer.
Just mix a little water and make a paste and apply it on my face. Keep it for 20-30 secs and wash off. The days I need to scrub just slowly rub it in circular directions and wash off. For a face pack I keep it on my face still it dries and wash off for that glowing skin.
This can be used as a bodywash even. Just dampen your body and apply it evenly all over. Again as per your requirement you can use it as a wash, scrub or pack.
You can even mix it with coconut oil and any other oil of your choice when using as a body wash.
After one week I do see my black scars fading and there is an even glow on my face. The tan on my hands and neck have faded.
You can add, remove or edit the ingredients as per your skin type or choice. Like when I have some extra time, I mix curd and honey to the mixture.
If you have any more suggestions please let me know.
