Benefits of besan
Besan, also popularly known as gram flour, is rich in fibre, proteins, magnesium and iron. Besides being used in food preparation, the external usage of besan works wonders as well. To make the most of this power-packed ingredient, you can use it as a besan face pack to battle certain skin remedies.
To brighten skin
Create a mixture of besan, almond powder, curd and turmeric and blend it into a runny paste. Then apply it to your face. This face pack is a sure-fire way to brighten your skin. The active culture that is present in the curd combines with the fibre in besan to scrub away the dead cells and reveal brighter skin that’s lying underneath.
To control oiliness
Combine besan powder with rosewater and honey in proportion and apply it on your face as a mask to combats oiliness. The honey will moisturise your skin and the besan will unclog your pores. Together, they will help control the production of excess sebum on your face.
To reduce acne scars
Mix besan, sandalwood powder and water to create a paste to apply on your face and neck. The vitamin-rich besan combined with powerful sandalwood works its way deep into the skin to banish stubborn acne scars slowly and steadily.
