Milk cream – amazing, ancient beauty secret

You may or may not like eating malai (milk cream/clotted cream) but you will certainly love the effect it has on your skin when you use it in a face pack or mask. Malai often gets wasted in many homes especially when people who are on a weight loss diet. But instead of dumping it in the bin the next time, make a natural pack with it which will give you smooth and flawless skin. Remember your grandma’s beauty tips about using natural products for glowing skin? Well, malai is one of those ingredients. Here are a few home-made packs you can try.

If you have normal skin with no problems as such but want to take care of it in a natural way, make a pack of malai with chandan (sandalwood), haldi (turmeric), honey, besan (gram flour) and rose oil. Mix them well and it on your face and neck. Let it stay for some time and then wash it off with water. This will remove impurities and keep your skin soft and supple.

If you have dry skin, mix malai and besan in a bowl with milk and apply it on your face, arms, legs, etc. This will moisturise it to a certain extent and also give it a glow.

Malai is also good to lighten your skin to a certain extent as it is made from milk. Add some kesar (saffron) to it and then apply it on your body. Leave it for half-an-hour and then take a bath.

A good everyday pack is just mixing honey and malai and applying on your face. Wash after 15-20 minutes. It is easy to make and has various benefits for your skin – the goodness of honey keeps pimples at bay,and malai makes it silky smooth.

If instant glow is what you want then take a bowl and add malai, haldi and besan. This will remove grime giving you a fresher look with a glowing complexion.

Malai is fairly easy to make at home. All you need to do is boil milk and then let it cool down for 30 minutes. Now scoop the top layer which is malai. The quantity depends on the type of milk you use – full-fat milk will have more clotted cream than a skimmed version. So make use of it with these packs and say hello to beautiful skin.
