I am pretty sure that your grandma has told you at least a few hundred times to use a gram flour face pack to get a ‘nice’ complexion and glow. Well, she was definitely right when she raved about this ingredient readily available on most kitchen shelves. Gram flour is also called as ‘besan’. It is known to fight numerous skin problems, including blemishes, pimples, dark skin, and dull and lifeless skin. The best part about Besan is that it works for all skin types, making it an ideal skin care agent. This ingredient can either be used by itself or with a host of other natural ingredients to work wonders for your skin.

Besan And Tomato Face Pack
Blend one tomato and add this pulp to the besan. Mix well and apply as a face pack. Wash it off after 10-12 minutes. Adding tomato pulp to besan makes it a skin lightening and de-tanning face pack. The natural acids found in tomato act as bleaching agents and can lighten tan, dark spots, and hyperpigmented areas. Tomato pulp also helps to rebalance the skin’s pH and the associated natural sebum production. The vitamin C content of tomato proves beneficial to make the skin smoother and firmer by getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines.
Besan And Banana Face Pack
Mash the banana pieces thoroughly and add besan to it. Mix the besan in and add some rose water to adjust the consistency of the face pack. Apply this evenly on the face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water. Banana is full of rich fats that deeply nourish the skin and moisturize it. It also minimizes scars and wrinkles by boosting the production of collagen and elastin.
Some natural ingredients mentioned above might suit your skin, while some might not. If you have never used a particular ingredient before, it is best to do a patch test to check for allergic reactions before you smear your face with the pack.
See you soon. Xoxo!
