Come beta, come sit next to your naani. Let me tell you about my most treasured beauty ingredient – Multani Mitti. This is a beauty secret that has been passed down generations in our family.
You know, when I was a young girl like yourself, my mother used to religiously apply Multani Mitti on both our faces every week. At first, I didn’t understand why, I would complain that it felt so tight and dry on my skin! But my mother insisted that it worked wonders, and now decades later, I see the proof on my own aging skin.
Multani Mitti is a very special and effective ayurvedic treatment for the skin. It is a natural clay that is found deep under the ground, in the Multan region of Pakistan. It contains minerals that are beneficial to your skin, such as silica, magnesium, lime, iron, and aluminium. When this light brown clay is mined from the land and processed into a fine powder, it becomes Multani Mitti. Let me tell you, beta, that this is not your average face pack component. Multani Mitti has incredible absorbing capabilities, it works like a magnet sucking out impurities from deep under your skin.
Whenever you apply a paste of Multani Mitti made with rose water or milk on your face, you can actually feel it working! It tightens on your skin as it dries and literally sucks out dirt, excess oils and impurities from clogged pores. Don’t worry about the tight feeling, it means the Multani Mitti is deeply cleansing your skin from inside.
With regular use, it removes pimples and acne from the root, reduces large pores and gives an even skin tone. It absorbs extra oiliness from the skin surface and regulates sebum production, so oily skin people get a lot of benefit from using Multani Mitti.
This natural ingredient has magical skin lightening properties as well! If you are struggling with stubborn tan, dark spots, pigmentation or dull skin, Multani Mitti is the solution. When applied all over the face regularly, it reduces pigmentation and reveals brighter, more radiant skin over time.
You know beta, as we age, skin loses its natural glow and starts becoming loose and wrinkled. But look at my skin, even in my 60s hardly any major signs of aging! I can thank Multani Mitti for this anti-aging magic. Its minerals stimulate blood circulation and cell renewal in the skin, which prevents wrinkles and sagging.
Don’t think this is only suitable for the face, you can mix Multani Mitti with some essential oils and use all over your body too! It will exfoliate dead skin cells, remove suntan and give amazing glow to your body skin.
I remember during my childhood; my mother would mix the Multani Mitti with chickpea flour and use it as an all over body scrub before bathing. It leaves the skin feeling so fresh and smooth. She would also add it sometimes in our body ubtan during festivals to get extra glowing skin!
Benefits of Multani Mitti
While Multani Mitti has so many benefits, it is also important to use it the right way, so it gives optimal results. Let me give you some tips I learned from experience beta:
- Always do a patch test before full use to check for allergies or reactions.
- Mix it with rose water or raw milk, not just plain water.
- Apply gently with circular motions, don’t rub too hard on your skin.
- Let it dry completely, then wash it off thoroughly with water.
- Limit use to 2-3 times a week only, as it can dry out skin if overused.
