From kitchen to your beauty kitty, isn’t this what skincare means to us today? It’s easy not just to whip but also on your skin and pockets. Once seen as a favourite hobby during lockdown where we found a new mask to make often, these have the potential to live long as one can think. Understand what your skin is looking for, expect dryness this season. Always keep a moisturiser handy and a weekly mask routine can help you out. If you’re also looking for a remedy for acne, Mung beans can help you out. It’s a tried, tested, and loved ingredient by the Chinese. 

 

Mung beans or popularly known as green grams belong to the legume family. These green doses of nutrients are great for your health but awesome for skin that needs an instant pick-me-up. Naturally gifted with anti-inflammatory properties, vitamin A and C, these beans can help combat dullness, improve your skin texture and shield your skin from UVA and UVB damage. The gram also acts as a cleansing agent that can remove grime, control sebum that can clog up your pores, reduce breakouts, soothe itchy skin and keep your skin hydrated. Wish to try it for yourself? We’ll stop gloating about its impressive powers and give you three face mask recipes.
