- 1 cup masoor dal
- 2 tsp turmeric powder
- 10 to 20 strands saffron
- 1 tsp sandalwood powder
- Place the masoor dal, turmeric, saffron, and sandalwood powder in a blender. Blend until the mixture becomes a fine powder, 1 to 3 minutes.
- Place a spoonful of the powder in a small bowl and mix it with a bit of water to create a paste. Spread the paste onto your face and keep it there for 10 to 15 minutes, or until it dries up and tightens your facial muscles.
- Rinse the facemask off with cool water, ideally in the shower.
Ideally, you should apply this mask in the morning, on an empty stomach. You can use it daily if you wish, but note that turmeric may leave a slight yellow stain on the skin; the stain will fade in a day.
