Most of Sonam’s recommendations are desi nuskhas we all swear by, which have been handed down to us by our mothers and grandmothers over the years. Here is Sonam’s take on these nani ke nushke. Read on:
Besan face mask
Sharing a classic remedy that most Indian women turn to, to get a nice golden glow is a mask made by mixing gram flour (besan), sandalwood powder, rose water, milk and turmeric. Sonam advices to apply it on your face, let it dry and then rub it off your face very gently. “It is amazing. It’s an antioxidant and it is a great face scrub and mask. It tightens everything, moisturises everything, The lactic acid of the milk works, turmeric is an antiseptic,” Sonam said in the video.
You can also add honey to the face pack to moisturise your skin further, she added. Try these honey face masks.
Multani mitti face mask
Like most Indian girls, Sonam also swears by multani mitti or green clay face mask which can help in case of “zits, impurities or (if you) had a tough night or partied a lot”. She shared in the video how she uses it on her back as well, “It is the best thing to actually draw out all the impurities from your skin. It actually cools my body down. It cools my stomach as well.”
