MIM: Home Remedy Face Mask

Dear Mimi,

With the winter months upon us, it’s too easy for our skin to get dry, dull, and dark. My solution? A DIY facemask that has been popular in India for hundreds of years!

Indian brides usually apply this face mask a few days before their weddings, so you know that it’ll give you bright, healthy, glowing skin! Best of all, it’s super simple to make.


What You’ll Need:

  • 2.5 tablespoons gram flour (besan)
  • A pinch (just a literal pinch) of turmeric (haldi) ***
  • 1 teaspoon rose water
  • 1 teaspoon of milk or plain yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey

What To Do:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together until it makes a nice paste.
  2. Apply it to your face, by rubbing it into your skin with your hands.
  3. After you have rubbed it in, apply a second, thinner layer on top.
  4. Leave on for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Rinse off with cool water.
  6. Voila!

***Note: Do not put more than a pinch otherwise it will stain your fingers and your face yellow. You’ve been warned.

So easy, I made it myself!
