Gram Flour; food for your skin
Here at the Inava Pavani team, we believe in old skincare techniques. Within Indian households there is a particular skincare routine passed on for generations (a grandmothers recipe). A secret ingredient to glowing, even skin that can tackle acne, dry, clogged skin. Not only applicable to oily skin- this sneaky ingredient caters to all skin types.
Here's what you'll need:
FOR DRY SKIN ONLY:
- 1 tbsp of Yogurt
- 1 1/2 to 2 tbsp Gram Flour
- A pinch of turmeric powder
- One tsp of Honey
FOR OILY/COMBINATION SKIN ONLY:
- Two tablespoons of Gram flour
- Four tablespoons of Rose water
Step 1: Mix all the ingredients in a small dish until smooth (a paste).
Step 2: To use as a scrub, apply all over the face in circular motions (to exfoliate) and leave on for 5 minutes. As a face pack/mask- leave on for 15-20 minutes (for deeper pore cleansing).
Step 3: Wash with cool water then pat dry with a damp face towel.
Step 4: For best results, repeat this process once a week.
Step 1: Mix the ingredients together to create a smooth paste.
Step 2: Apply to your face AND your neck; allow it to dry for 15-20 minutes
Step 3: Wash your face mask off with cool water using circular motions, and pat your skin dry. Et Voila!
