CHICK­PEA FLOUR

Hair - - Getaway -

The flour of Ben­gal gram or chick­peas is used in a va­ri­ety of prepa­ra­tions and in beauty treat­ments. The flour works to ex­fo­li­ate, lighten and brighten the skin. In­dian brides are given a re­lax­ing sesame seed oil mas­sage fol­lowed by an ap­pli­ca­tion of chick­pea flour paste with dif­fer­ent in­gre­di­ents such as san­dal­wood, al­monds or al­mond oil, milk, turmeric, honey and dried or­ange peel pow­der. The ap­pli­ca­tion is usu­ally left on for about ten min­utes and then gen­tly rubbed off, fol­lowed by a warm bath re­sult­ing in soft, smooth and glow­ing skin!
