Milk cream contains nutrients that help nourish not only our body but also our skin. The proteins, minerals, vitamins and fat provide several skin care benefits. Here is a simple malai (milk cream) face pack recipe that gives you instant glowing skin.
All recipe on PB are tried and tested on my normal sensitive skin before recommending.
Most of the ingredients that i use in my recipes are homemade too like, Aloe Vera gel, Wild turmeric powder, Besan. This is to avoid allergies and irritation from fake ingredients. I have had really bad past experiences from store bought products.

- Lemon juice – 1 Tablespoon
- Aloe Vera gel – 1 Tablespoon (For sensitive skin)
You may use this malai face pack three times a week.
This face pack does not dry out the skin at all even for dry skin. So it is suitable for both dry skin and oily skin. It has soothing and nourishing ingredients and hence can be used for mature skin as well as sensitive skin. It promotes wound healing and promotes collagen production. These features help to prevent premature ageing.
Take 1-2 tablespoon malai in a clean bowl. Add one tablespoon of besan to it.
Next we need to add a pinch of wild turmeric.(Kasturi Turmeric) that is used for cosmetic purposes.
Aloe Vera gel comes next. I am adding aloe vera juice that i made earlier. You may see that post here, How To Make Aloe Vera Gel At Home.
Now we have added everything. I have skipped lemon juice because of my sensitive skin. All other skin types may add lemon juice instead of aloe vera gel.
Mix everything together and it is ready to use.
Apply it to your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes.
I leave it until my nose dries completely and rub the face pack off on that area alone.I do this to make it look smooth and take off the dead skin cells in the crease area. 🙂 This works best for my skin, much better than scrubbing.
You may rub off the face pack after it dries completely. But remember not to overdo it
Do this (rubbing off) once a week only.
The skin becomes really soft. There is a layer of oiliness left on my skin which i do not mind. It makes my skin look radiant. You may wash it off with a teaspoon of besan or any cleanser.
This face pack does help brighten the skin tone. I do not have to moisturise my normal skin afterwards for the rest of the day. It makes my skin look bright with a healthy glow.
Malai face pack is really easy to make and has many long term benefits. Try it and let me Know.
Have A Good Day. 🙂
