Did you know that Desi ghee could be an amazing ingredient for any skin care regime? And it’s not just us, but even Ayurveda deems ghee to be a storehouse of numerous benefits. Read on as we reveal tips for a glowing skin and suggest some home remedies with ghee as the main ingredient!
Works as a Moisturizer
Ghee is an effective moisturizing agent, since it contains essential fatty acids. Normally, you could moisturize your skin by massaging ghee on to your skin every day. You may also try the listed face masks as per your skin type-
• Dry Skin- Mix ghee, honey milk to and massage your skin for fifteen minutes with the mixture. Rinse it off with cold water.
• Dull Skin- Mix ghee with milk and besan to make a paste. Massage it on your face and neck and leave it for 20 minutes. Rinse with cold water.
• Oily Skin- You could use the same routine for dry skin. But remember to substitute honey with lemon juice.
• You can also moisturize chapped lips by massaging ghee onto your lips for fifteen minutes.
These masks, if applied daily, would show best results.
Ghee supplies our skin with adequate moisture and gives it an irresistible glow. Listed below is a face mask recipe which will give you results instantly.
Mix ghee, milk and finely blended masoor dal/besan. Apply the mask on your face and leave it for fifteen minutes. Rinse off with some cold water.
Ghee, being an anti-oxidant, diminishes fine lines, wrinkles and improves skin elasticity.
Mix two teaspoons of pure ghee with honey and sandalwood paste. Massage it on for ten minutes, rinse with water and do not put any moisturizer for six hours after the application.
Ayurveda prescribes a recipe called Shata Dhauta Ghee (100 times washed ghee) to treat burns, herpes and chicken wounds, pimple marks etc. Pregnant women are advised to apply it around the umbilicus area in the times of unexplained bleeding and spotting.
Mix ten ounces of ghee with water and then let the water out. Add fresh water to the paste again, mix it well and let the water out again. Repeat this procedure for thirty minutes till it gets a butter-like consistency. Apply the paste onto affected areas.
Removes Dark Circles
Ghee works wonders in removing under eye circles. Apply ghee on the dark circles, massage the area slowly for few minutes and leave it overnight.
Ghee perfectly seals a balanced diet. It is a good source of healthy fats, is low in fat and reduces cholesterol. Moreover, it is blessed with anti-cancerous properties! Putting moderate amounts of ghee in your food will bless you with these benefits and the internal glow will show on your face in no time!
So rush off to the kitchen right away and give your skin the rightful dues it deserves by using our very own desi ghee!
