I have a confession I try to make everything at home which is both a bad and a good thing :/ . but since a long time I have not used anything on my face apart from besan and nimbu , well almost seven years now . I got to know how many chemicals are added in the facewashes and I really didn’t trust the brands but I still used soap for my body and after a lot of thought I realized that I should stop using it and make something at home and use it like soap and Viola I started making ubtan at home and it really works , depending upon the type of skin you have , or the season you can customize your own ubtan and the positive point is it is cheaper and more ph balanced and really doesn’t have any preservative that you might not like .
Okay so my summer ubtan is as follows , you will need
- Besan (chickpea flour)
- and a big air tight container )
Now this is very easy and you will love it
1) take your air tight container and clean it nicely , then make sure there is no water inside ,
2)now take 8 tablespoons of besan – this will make enough ubtan for a week .
3)now take 3 big lemons and take the juice out of it in the container , make sure that you do not mix the seeds with this one because if those seeds go into your batroom ka nala then you are done :/ , try to mix it , it wont make a flowy batter but it’ll be very clumpy which is okay .
4)now take a big cup of milk and pour it out gently making a thin paste which you can easily distribute throughout your body :). You can put more milk if you think that your ubtan is too thick or can take little milk if you think that the ubtan is to runny , you can add more besan to it.
5)Then you will take a pinch of turmeric powder and put it in the mixture ☺ don’t put too much , itll make your look yellow if you put too much.
6) and that it is , your Ubtan is made use it on your face or your body and your set for your whole week
The consistency of the ubtan should be a bit runny but not too much , just apply it all over your body and see the difference . you have to store this with a lid in your refrigerator and it will thicken on its own so just add more milk if it does so ☺
This ubtan is great in removing tan and making your skin feel less dry , the milk is a very powerful cleaner , try applying milk on your face and see . my mom once washed her face with milk and all the bleach she did came off .
Take this ubtan apply it all over your body before applying any water on it and massage as your massage with your soap and then rinse with water .
The milk moisturizes, the lemon lightens, the turmeric is an antifungal agent and the besan removes excess oil .
My body has become less dry and I can actually see the difference in the tan , although this might not be the perfect ubtan for you because you might have oily skin but you can always add or substract ☺ that’s the nice thing about making things on your own .
I will experiment more around with these ubtans because I really like the way they work
Tell me if you guys use ubtan and if it works for you
