It doubles as a Simpsons halloween mask
In Indian households, it’s not just your grandmother’s recipes and family heirlooms you inherit. The antique trinkets and secret masalas are accompanied by foolproof nuskas (home remedies) that put overpriced creams and serums to shame. Also, with India’s cultural diversity, there are at least 10 beauty rituals for each product on your bathroom counter.
For our video series, Beauty Rituals, some of our favourite women share the home remedies they swear by while, giving us a peephole into their respective cultures. From the frigid north to the sultry south, we have a great mix of DIY masks, scrubs, packs and more that will leave your hair and skin feeling better than ever.
We’re kicking off our new series with the effervescent Sejal Kumar. She started her journey as a YouTuber and in no time at all became one of the country’s leading content creators. Today, she has acted in web series, produced song covers, and pleasantly surprised us with her stellar dance moves. In this video she shows us a DIY secret she learnt from her Sindhi grandmother for smooth, supple skin.
Sejal Kumar’s go-to Sindhi beauty ritual
- 2 tbsp besan (gram flour)
- 2-3 tbsp milk
- 1 tsp turmeric
- A few drops lemon juice
- Mix the besan, milk and turmeric in a bowl till it forms a thick paste. Add water if you’re not happy with the consistency.
- Add a squeeze of lemon and mix well.
- Take some of the paste on your fingers and apply it evenly on your face and body.
- Allow the pack to dry.
- Once it is fully dry, massage it around to scrub it off, this will help with exfoliation.
- Once you’ve scrubbed it off, wash the remaining off with some cold water.
