For preparing this face pack, all you need is 3 simple ingredients from your kitchen yogurt (curd), saffron (kesar) and gram flour (besan).

  • Yogurt is rich in zinc & lactic acid and it helps remove dead skin cells, prevents fine lines, curing acne and fading scars. It also imparts a nice healthy glow on the skin.
  • Saffron has natural skin lightening and brightening properties.
  • Besan effectively cleanses and exfoliates the skin and helps reveal soft, smooth and healthy skin.

Step 1 : Soak 10-12 strands of saffron in 2 tsp of yogurt and keep it in the refrigerator overnight. Next day mix the yogurt & saffron well, the mixture should look something like given below.
