Gram Flour Mask with Green Tea – Do It Yourself

So, I’m just in my kitchen making my usual afternoon green tea, thinking about how much my skin has been destroyed this winter. Then,I take out the tea bags after the tea is made, and I just stand there staring at the soaked bag (weirdo!), and then a light goes on in my head. What if? Green is very good for body and skin and the only homemade mask I ever use is the gram flour mask. So, what if I add them together to make a mask. Guys, I thought this then and there and the second I thought of that idea, I got down to work.

Gram+Flour+Mask+with+Green+Tea+Do+It+Yourself

Benefits:

Green Tea:  Green tea can help with wrinkles and the signs of aging.  This is because of their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Studies have demonstrated that green tea can reduce sun damage.

Gram Flour: Gram Flour is used to cleanse, tighten, lighten, and rejuvenate the skin; it can also help with redness and swelling, and fine lines, wrinkles and tan.

Turmeric: Turmeric helps reduce pigmentation, appearance of acne, help maintain elasticity in skin, and can also reduce facial hair growth.

Honey: Honey has the ability to absorb and retain moisture. Its natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties help to protect the skin from the damage of the sun’s rays. Honey makes skin feel silky soft, and supple.

Milk: The lactic Acid in milk help exfoliate, making skin glowing, smooth, and clean.

Ingredients:

Besan face pack

  • Gram flour (Besan).
  • Green Tea.
  • Turmeric powder.
  • Honey.
  • Milk.

Step-By-Step Procedure:

Step One: Brew green tea, and keep the soaked bag aside for later.

Step Two: In a bowl, add 2 tablespoons of Gram flour, one teaspoon of Turmeric powder, two tablespoon Honey, and mix them together until they look crumbly.

Step Three: Empty the content of the tea bag into the bowl, and mix everything together.

Step Four: Then, add milk and mix. You can add milk as you prefer. I only add one table spoon because I like my paste to be thick, but if you like creamier mask, then you can add 2-3 table spoons of mask.

After you apply the mask, your face should look like a pakora ready to be deep FRIED!! Keep it on for 15-20 minutes. While you wait, drink the green tea that you made in the beginning. That way you are cleansing both your face and body!

Extra Tip:

You can substitute milk with rose water if you like.  The green tea in the mask gives you a cooling sensation, so cut two pieces of fresh cucumber, put it over your eyes for an extra oomph. Lie back and relax, it feels very good.  Apply it under your eyes for your dark circles.

Please do tell me your experience with this guys :)

plz dont mind my asking but does this mixing of ingredients on one’s own will really help or the time tested face masks are better?
