This is traditionally used by women in India as a natural cleanser and is used in place of soap, which can strip the skin of much needed moisture. The gram flour not only sloughs off dead skin, it prevents turmeric from staining the skin. Gram (or chickpea) flour also relieves oiliness. Milk is used to firm the skin and retard the formation of wrinkles.
- 1 tablespoon gram flour(besan)
