Our mothers and grandmothers solely relied on natural and kitchen ingredients for their skincare, the benefits of which still show. And if you talk about our generation, we spend a huge amount on a number of products which doesn’t even help. So, what do we do? Of course, we resort to these remedies that do wonders & that’s exactly what we’re gonna tell you guys today!

This recipe has a lot to offer, but one of the greatest benefits is that it removes tan when applied regularly. The recipe is quite simple, you need 3 spoons of besan, one tablespoon of mustard oil, half a tablespoon turmeric, malai, a tablespoon of honey and approx 3 tablespoons of milk. Mix the ingredients well till it becomes lump-free and apply it for a minimum of 20 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.
2. Ghee For Chapped Lips
Ghee contains fatty acids that will nourish and moisturize dry, chapped lips. You can either put on a thick layer of ghee and wash it off after 15 minutes or massage your lips with ghee before you go off to sleep and keep it overnight. Doing this regularly will give you soft and plump lips.
3. Malai For Dry Skin

Yep, hydration is the key and if you have dry and patchy skin, apply an appropriate amount of malai before you go to sleep and keep it overnight. Once you do it on a daily basis, you’ll see the difference yourself that you’ll definitely thank us for!
4. Mustard Oil For Frizzy Hair
You can splurge on hair masks and serums, but if there’s one thing that going to give you shiny hair, it’s mustard oil - this we can vouch for! Apply it nicely on the scalp and the roots at least an hour before you shampoo every week and wash off with your preferred shampoo.
5. Milk For Sunburn

Sunburn is a result of excessive sun exposure that causes red and swollen skin. Using umbrellas or applying sunscreen every hour does help to an extent, but direct sunlight always does more harm than good. To treat sunburn, wash the affected skin with chilled milk twice a day until your skin goes back to normal.
6. Methi Seeds In Coconut Oil For Healthy Hair
