Hope you will enjoy these home remedies using besan ( gram flour) – a commonly used ingredient in kitchens across India.

 

Home remedies using Besan for Dry skin

 

This honey and cream-based formula will lock the moisture and keep your skin hydrated, ensuring that your face doesn’t feel too tight or irritated after application.

 

“Take 1 tbsp of besan powder in a bowl and add an equal amount of almond powder and lentil powder (red masoor dal). Add 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder, 1tsp of milk cream and 1tsp of honey. Make a paste by adding raw milk (kaccha doodh) according to your requirements and apply it on your face and leave it to dry. Wash it off with lukewarm water and use on every alternate day for a week, for considerable difference,” she says.

 

Home remedies using Besan for Oily skin

 

Lemon juice is a great bleaching agent and the citric acid will help you get rid of the extra oils on your face, so don’t worry about disturbing your sebaceous glands.

 

“Mix 1 tbsp of besan powder with an equal amount of barley powder. Add 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder and 1/4 tsp of lemon juice. Add yogurt to give it a paste-like consistency and apply it on your face. Once it dries, wash it off with lukewarm water and use on every alternate day for a week, for considerable difference,” she suggests.

 

Home remedies using Besan for Combination skin

 

A combo of the refreshing cucumber juice and turmeric is your best bet to de-tan if you have combination skin, as both the substances are known for their skin-lightening properties.

 

“Mix 1 tbsp of besan powder with an equal amount of orange peel powder. Add 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder and 1 tsp of cucumber juice. Make a paste using rose water and apply it on your face, leaving it on till it dries. Wash it off with lukewarm water and use every alternate day for a week, for considerable difference,” she suggests.

 

Home remedies using Besan for Acne-prone skin

 

While anyone with acne-prone skin is wary of trying anything new, give this pack a go-ahead, as it contains sandalwood powder–one of the most well-known weapons in your arsenal when it comes to tackling acne, pimples and blemishes.

 

“Mix equal amounts of besan powder, orange peel powder and sandalwood powder (we have taken 1tbsp each). Add 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder and 1/4 tsp of lemon juice. Make a paste using yogurt (curd) and apply it on your face. Let it dry before washing it off with lukewarm water. Use every alternate day for a week, for considerable difference,” she says.

 

Home remedies using Besan for Sunburnt skin

 

Sunburnt skin tends to be extra sensitive (and even painful in some cases), so anything gentle with cooling properties helps soothe the skin.

 

“Mix equal amounts of besan powder, ground oats and sandalwood powder (we have taken 1tbsp each). Make a paste with an infusion of green tea and add 1tsp of honey. Give it a good mix. Apply it on your face and let it dry. Wash it off with lukewarm water and use everyday to help your skin relax,” she adds.
