Procedure: Take 2 spoons of Gram Flour in a small bowl and add about 3 spoons of raw or homogenized milk. Always use this paste for washing your face instead of any soap. If in a hurry, rub the paste and wash but if time permits leave it applied on the face for about 15 min before washing your face.

Using Almond and Milk
Procedure: Take 6-8 pieces of almonds. Add about 2 tablespoons of water and heat for 30 seconds in microwave. Set aside for about 8 hours. After that time period, peal the skin off the almonds and discard the skin. Add about 4 teaspoons milk and grind this into a smooth paste using either a small blender or mortar and pestle. Apply this almond milk preparation on your face gently. If it does not bother you, it is best to leave it applied overnight and then wash your face with cold water in the morning. But if it does not feel right to sleep with the mask on the face, then apply it in the evening for atleast 2-3 hours and then wash before going to bed.
