    Hi Sukriti, for mole removal, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist. Some moles need to be treated with caution. Before trying the home remedies for moles, it is important to inspect your mole for abnormal characteristics such as asymmetry of the border, color, or diameter. Multani mitti is effective for the removal of acne scars. Apart from multani mitti some of the remedies are:
    1. Garlic – Garlic is one of the effective home remedies for moles because it contains enzymes that help break down the clusters of pigment-producing cells. Crush a fresh garlic glove and place it on the mole.Secure it with a bandage and leave it on overnight, or at least for four hours. Do this daily for a few days.
    2. Pineapple juice – Fresh pineapple juice can help lighten the pigmentation of moles, thereby making them less noticeable. Soak a cotton ball in pineapple juice and apply it on your mole. Leave it on overnight or until the juice dries. Do this several times a day for a few weeks or until your mole fades.

    Hi Puran, using multani mitti (fuller earth) does not have any side effects unless and until your skin is allergic to it. If you have an oily skin then you can apply multani mitti pack three or four times a week and if you have a dry skin then it is sufficient to apply once or twice in a week mixed with moisturizing ingredients like honey, milk and rose water.

    Hi Maryam, it is sufficient to apply multani mitti pack every alternate day till your acne reduces and then apply this pack once or twice in a week. Also after you wash away the pack, follow it up with the application of a light moisturizer to prevent drying of skin.

    Hi Harish, multani mitti works well as a cleanser and helps to remove any skin blemishes. Apply a pack of multani mitti, rose water and to this you can add a little tomato juice to reduce marks. Also, always remember that it’s not a magic potion so it will not reduce the blemishes overnight. So you have to follow the mask for a time and be patient to have the glowing and blemish free skin.

    Dear Hikari, multani mitti is beneficial for the skin in numerous ways. It treats dark circles too. All you have to do is mix multani mitti with crushed almonds and a little of glycerine. Use this paste to properly massage your face, especially the portion below your eyes, which has gone dark due to lack of sleep, excessive use of cellphones and laptops etc. After properly massaging, leave it as it is for sometime, and then, wash it off. This would regenerate the freshness in your face, and would also remove the dark circles under your eyes.

    Hii, some of the ways to get rid of puffy eyes are:
    1. Tea Bags – Tea contains anti-irritant properties that help reduce swelling around your eyes. Soak 2 teabags in hot water for a few minutes, then take them out and let them cool down. Leave them in place for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat a few times a day.
    2. Cucumber slices – Chilled cucumbers make a good remedy for treating puffy eyes. Cut a cucumber into thick slices. Chill the slices in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Place the cold slices on your eyelids for about 10 minutes or until they become warm. Repeat the process several times a day.

      Yes aquino, you can use fuller earth mask for an oily Tzone. If you find your cheeks and other parts of the face and neck a little dry after washing away the face pack, then apply a light, water-based moisturizer.

    Hi Hanna, applying multani mitti (fuller earth) as face pack will not clog the pores. In fact, It absorbs excess oil from the skin surface and makes it soft and smooth. It avoids the occurrence of pimples caused due to excess oil secretion.

    It is a traditional method of taking care of skin in India, right? I suppose that it is so good because like I watch on the TV, the Indian actresses all have a very smooth skin, and that’s what I like. Indeed, there are more than one purpose that women use multani mitti. They not just look after their skin but also health and hair as well.
