Aata for skin care? Yes, you heard us. This commonly used ingredient in most Indian households can serve you in many more ways other than in making delicious parathas and pooris. With the 21 days lockdown already effective, being homebound for this long isn’t going to be easy. Moreover, if you have already started using your stock of household items carefully or don’t have the necessary beauty products at home, you can resort to simple, fuss free aata to give your skin a pampering session.
While we commonly know that whole wheat is a great source of fiber, it also comes with properties that work wonders for the skin. This is because of a few essential vitamins and minerals like zinc, selenium, manganese, etc. Much like besan (gram flour), you can use aata as a face pack to fight oily skin, cleanse out toxins, reduce tan and dark spots and improve skin elasticity and brightness. Besides, you will be using a completely natural ingredient to give your skin a dose of goodness.
Aata (Wheat Flour) Face Packs To Try At Home
Being home quarantined, pamper yourself with enriching beauty products like scrubs, masks, peel off packs and moisturisers. But if you have limited stock, you can always turn to natural and easily available kitchen ingredients that work wonders for the skin, such as aata. Here’s how to use it:
1. Aata + Milk To Reduce Oiliness
Make a paste using 2 tablespoons aata and 2 tablespoons milk. It should have the same consistency as a regular face pack. Apply it all over the face and neck and let it try for 15 minutes. Then wash your skin with cool water.
