Gram flour a natural ingredient for skin care 

Gram flour (besan or channa ka aata) has been traditionally used in beauty care, mainly to deep cleanse and exfoliate the skin. In fact, it used to be one of the main ingredients of a body scrub that was a traditional beauty treatment for brides. It consisted of gram flour, rice flour, ground almonds, yogurt and turmeric. First, the body was massaged with sesame seed (til) oil. Then the mixture was applied and washed off after half an hour, while bathing. The washing off and scrub helped to clear the skin of dead cells, leaving the skin smooth and bright, with a translucent quality.
How it can be used?
Gram flour can also be added to face packs to remove a tan and to cleanse and tighten the skin. Mix it with yogurt, lemon juice and a pinch of turmeric. Apply on the skin and wash it off after half an hour. Mix ground almonds with gram flour, milk and lemon juice. Apply it on the face and wash off after 20 to 30 minutes. It helps to remove tan and lighten skin colour. A besan pack helps to reduce oiliness. It can be mixed with milk or yogurt and applied, washing it off after 20 minutes. For pimple prone skin, mix besan with sandalwood paste, turmeric and milk into a paste. Apply on the face and wash it off after 20 minutes. To discourage facial hair, mix gram flour with water into a paste and apply on the area. Wash it off when it dries. For dark arms and neck: Apply til oil daily and massage it on the skin. Mix besan, curd, lemon juice and a little turmeric and apply at least three times a week. Wash it off after half an hour. Then apply til oil and massage it into the skin, as recommended. Mix a cup of curd, two teaspoons of besan, an egg white and the juice of half a lemon. If you have very dry hair, substitute the egg white with a teaspoon of olive oil. For smooth and fairer skin, mix gram flour with dried and ground orange peels and cream of milk. Apply on the face and neck. After 15 minutes, rub gently on the skin with circular motions.
