And if you thought...

Multani Mitti was a good face pack for YOUR skin only, think again.
Read this
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2002/12/01/wtaj01.xml

Let me pick up a few lines from there.
"The Taj Mahal is being saved from the corrosive effects of industrial pollution by an ancient face-pack recipe - a blend of soil, cereal, milk and lime once used by Indian women to beautify their skin.
The sticky brown mixture is smeared on the smut-stained marble surfaces of the 17th- century Mogul tomb and washed off with warm water after 24 hours.
The formula - based on a method discovered in a 16th- century Mogul journal, Ain-I-Akbary - has proved to have such restorative qualities that it is now being exported to Italy to clean grimy monuments there."


I read the news in TOI frontpage today and googled for the same. It made a lot of sense.
Now we know for sure that there is a lot of research behind all those home-made therapies and treatments. These are time tested and can do wonders.
So, let me go and grab that face pack and become the eigth wonder of the world!!!

Aargee / NM:
Oh well :) I think I made a mistake by sharing this secret! Chalo, never mind. The more wonders, the merrier.. :D

hmm... So that's your secret. The last time I applied any type of mask on my face was 2 years back, when my daughter refused to come near me :(

Just Like That September 13, 2007 at 12:17 PM  

LOL! Reminds me of a dear roommate of mine, who mistakenly applied Multani mitti on her head! She mistook it for Methi paste... No adverse side effects reported. So for all we know, it might be good for hair too! LOL!

The age old turmeric works wonders as well as a massage with fresh cream obtained from cow's milk.multani mitti too has been used for ages long before our 'fair and lovely' made its way to cosmetic stores.You have been tagged.Check my blog.

Tell me the composition and proportion - I dont mind burying my face in mud.
