You need …

Equal amounts of

Besan (Gram flour)      -Acts as a natural soap to cleanse the oil and dirt

Orange peel powder ( You can buy  Banjara’s peel powder or you can make at home by drying orange peel and powdering them )                        – Gives a fresh feeling and helps with body odors.

Turmeric                     – do i need to tell that it gives a natural glow and brightness to the skin ,helps to remove tan.

Rice flour                   – Exfoliates the skin and helps remove tan.

 

Decide the quantity yourself ,if kept dry this mixture lasts for 2 months.

Procedure :

  • Mix   1 part of olive oil to 3 parts of any other oil ( Any thick oil will do).
  • You can add any essential oil to make it better.
  • Massage gently .
  • Let that settle for  a 10 minutes .
  • Take the above mixture in a small bowl ,add milk or rose water to it.
  • Massage the powder ( take time ).
  • Skip  soap ( except for necessary areas )
  • Wash with lukewarm water.
  • Do this at least twice a week for glowing skin.

I do a besan ,oil massage on daily basis and believe me i use body lotions only  occasionally .It keeps my skin soft and supple.
