Besan or gram’s flour is an age old super hit granny’s recipe to fight out a number of skin problems like dull lifeless skin, acne, pimples, dark skin, blemish buster and for removal of unwanted hair. Besan has been documented since traditional times as an ingredient to many beauty and spa treatments. It is inexpensive and is easily available in everyone’s kitchen!!
Gram Flour tends to be alkalizing in nature – to make them slightly acidic; it is often used together with lemon or yogurt. This mixture when applied onto skin – attracts the toxins and dust which are lodged deep into the pores of the skin. Thus the concoction has good cleansing and anti-microbial properties which are beneficial to our skin.
Below are some recipes for homemade Besan face packs:
