Multani Mitti which is also known as fuller's earth is a beauty staple when it comes to homemade remedies in India. It is in a clay form that is rich in minerals and is extremely popular for its healing powers that have been passed down to us from generation to generation.
Multani Mitti has probably been our mother's & grandmother's favourite home treatment for any skin or hair trouble. It is a commonly used beauty product for Indian families. Well, you might also be surprised to know that it was originated in Pakistan!
Multani Mitti has active properties and other sources of minerals which makes it an amazing go-to remedy in itself! Multani Mutti has the power to absorb dirt, sweat, oil and any impurities that get locked in your skin. We don't need to prove it anymore on how important a part it is of our beauty regime.
Now let's get straight to the face packs and their advantages :
Mix 1 tablespoon of lemon, 1 tablespoon honey and some rose water with Multani Mitti to receive a natural bleached glow on your face. The Vitamin C in lemon radiates your skin and helps reduce dark spots while honey hydrates, plumps and protects your face.
Haldi aka turmeric has some amazing medical powers that can give your skin a healthy glow in minutes. No wonder why we have a haldi ceremony here in India right before their wedding for the bride & groom. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can help heal infections, acne and brighten your face. It works wonders for tan removal, pigmentation and blemishes. Just prepare a mixture of Multani mitti with turmeric, rose water and curd and you are good to go.
Well, who knew potatoes can be delicious while eating and equally beneficial for our skin. The vegetable is great when it comes to reducing dark spots and pigmentation from your skin. Squeeze out some juice from grated potato and mix it with Multani mitti to achieve glowing and tan-free skin.
Yoghurt or commonly known as dahi contains lactic acid that exfoliates your skin gently and gives your skin a radiant glow, softens your skin, helps you get rid of acne, wrinkles and removes dark circles.
Cucumber soothes your skin and helps to cool it down by reducing puffiness around the under-eye area. Since they are full of water they are very hydrating so strain some juice in a blender and combine it with some Multani mitti and apply it on your face for a cooling and hydrating face pack.
Aloe Vera is one of the best skincare gifts nature can give us. The aloe vera gel has anti-inflammatory, skin healing and regeneration properties. Add 2 tablespoon aloe gel to Multani mitti and use it as a face mask or hair pack for complete moisturisation.
Milk is a great secret for glowing, smooth and flawless skin. Milk is also great at improving your complexion and an excellent cleanser for daily use. Dip a cotton ball in milk and clean your face with it to help shrink your facial pores. Milk will also help in reducing allergic reactions, lighten spots and heal wounds. Milk is also great at soothing sun damages on your skin so add some Multani mitti to milk and enjoy the best of both worlds.
