Too budget conscious to get a face clean up or a facial at the parlours? Then, try Multani mitti, a natural solution to all your skin woes.
Fuller’s Earth, or Multani mitti, or most commonly known as gopi chandan in India is known to be an excellent skin-cleansing agent that helps clean the skin of all the oil, dirt and dead cells caused due to the polluted environment.
This traditional skincare ingredient, which is rich in minerals such as aluminium silicate, offers high absorbing properties that leave the skin fresh and radiant.
Beneficial to oily and acne prone skin, multani mitti’s lime content kills harmful bacteria, removes excess oil and dirt, thus leaving the skin clean and soft. It further offers cooling effect on the skin and relives of inflammation caused due to severe acne.
Fuller’s earth also helps tighten the skin, which further reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
