This Is Why You Should Never Run Out Of Multani Mitti

Did you think multani miti is only good in face masks at the parlour? Think again. There are so many incredible benefits to this natural product that you’ll wonder why you didn’t start using it earlier.

Easy-to-Make-1-size-3

Multani mitti is a naturally-occurring clay that is loaded with minerals like magnesium, calcium, quartz, calcite, iron, silica and dolomite. Its primary use has been to reduce acne and blemishes, but there are countless other benefits of multani mitti for skin, and that’s what I’m going to talk about today.

1. Removes blackheads and whiteheads

You can use multani mitti for face affected by blackheads and whiteheads.

  • Wash and pat your face dry.
  • Mix together 1 tablespoon multani mitti, 2 coarsely ground almonds and 1½ teaspoon rose water.
  • Apply this mix to your face avoiding the areas around the mouth and eyes.
  • Massage it gently, focussing on areas with the most blackheads.
  • Rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water to remove the face pack easily.

Almonds, like rosewater is a staple in Indian beauty regime. We have been using almond for skin and hair since eons and hence we know how good almond can be for us. However, as almond is a nut, it is necessary for you to check if you have any allergies, as nut allergies are one of the most common ones around.

2. Get a glow

The dead skin cells removed by multani mitti make way for fresh skin and bring an instant glow to your face.

  • Wash and pat your face dry.
  • Mix together 1 tablespoon each multani mitti, the juice of a tomato, a teaspoon of powdered sandalwood and ¼ teaspoon of powdered turmeric in a glass or plastic bowl.
  • Apply it to your face but avoid applying it around your mouth and eyes.
  • Wipe off the pack after 15 minutes or when the pack dries.
  • Clean your face using lukewarm water to get it all out easily.
