Besan Flour Face Packs for Skin Care

Besan or chickpea powder or gram flour is a common traditional beauty ingredient in Indian beauty treatments. It has been used since ages because of its skin care benefits. Besan’s beauty benefits are lesser known to the world. It is extensively used during special occasions and during pre-wedding grooming to add a glow. It is best when mixed with curd or turmeric.
