There are a lot of rituals without which, a traditional Indian wedding is incomplete. And, one such ritual is the haldi ceremony. In this ceremony, the bride-to-be is anointed with ubtan, a face pack made of various natural ingredients.
The ubtan helps the bride to flaunt a radiantly glowing skin on her wedding, as it removes the tan and brightens her complexion.
Well, if applying an ubtan just for once can reap so many benefits, then imagine the result if you apply it every day.
So, for all you pretty brides-to-be, here are some natural ubtan recipes that you can start applying much before your haldi ceremony, and get a flawlessly glowing complexion on your wedding.
Using this ubtan regularly will give you a baby soft and smooth skin by your wedding day.
Take a cup of masoor dal (red lentil), a quarter cup raw rice, and eight to nine almonds and grind each of them separately. Now, mix these three powders in a bowl and add about half a cup of oatmeal, and a pinch of turmeric in it. Make a thick paste by adding rose water. Apply it all over your body and let it dry for some time. Once the paste is dry, scrub it off gently and wash with normal water. For those having dry skin, it would be a good idea to add milk cream in this ubtan.
This is a very nourishing ubtan, especially for those with dry skin.
