Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth) have been in use throusands of years back from Ancient Rome as a face-pack until the bottled/lotions/solutions came into being.

Its primary property & immediate conceivable effect is the coolness it provides to the applied area. A boon for those tormented with oily skin, Multani does an admirable job in absorbing oil, impurities & toxins, and if applied regularly, one does see a visible effect. though its not a fairness things but its application will reduce oily skin, cleaning properties it has, which will contribute to improve glow and fairness.

The answer is No to your question on fairness. I didnt get what you meant by "make your skin beautiful" (??????) Each one of us is beautiful in our own way. NEVER equate good looks to beauty. and Multani Mitti will not help a person in any way to change one's features - this is possible only by cosmetic surgery.

Multani mitti is actually fine mud/rock which will only help reduce excess oil that is secreted by the skin and over time. Moreover, it should NOT be applied DAILY to the face because facial skin is very delicate and daily usage will make it look stretched in due course of time. Once or twice a week, mixed together with rose water and a little bit of Haldi is good enough.

Applying multani mitti everyday can make the skin dry. You can try some of the following home remedies to whiten the skin- giving you a lighter and whiter complexion:

Dry orange peels in sun. When they are fully dried, grind them in a mixture and make powder. Add raw milk to it, make a paste and apply it on your skin everyday. Rinse it off with lukewarm water when dries. (one of the best remedy)

Take sandalwood powder, add lemon juice, tomato juice, cucumber juice to it, make a paste and apply on the skin till it dries to get a brighter, lighter and even skin tone.

Gram flour has whitening agents to it. Take 2 spoonfuls of gram flour; add a pinch of turmeric to it, few drops of lemon juice and few drops of milk cream. Make it a paste and apply on the skin. When it dries scrub it off. It can be applied all over the body everyday.

Soak almonds in water overnight. Peel them off in the morning. Make a paste and add honey to it. Apply it on face and scrub it off when dries to make skin whiter and glowing.

yes it does,how to use it all depends on skin type,if skin is dry apply with milk,if skin is oily apply with sour curd/lemon juice,if skin is normal apply with cucumber juice,well mitti can be applied alone but dont leave it too long coz it overdries the skin.Regular use improves the skin complexion and fade any acne marks if any.

hi, Applying a mixture of multanimitti, rose water and sandalwood to your skin will glow the skin. You can certainly just combine it with rosewater. It will clean the skin make it nice and even toned and give a fairer look to the skin.

A regular cleanser can be made for all types of skin using Fuller's earth. Mix together multani mitti, oatmeal and almond paste. Apply all over face and wash off after 10 minutes. Mix together multani mitti, besan and sandalwood powder in equal quantities and store the mixture in an airtight container. Use a teaspoon of this scrub mixed to a paste with water to cleanse the skin of flakes and dirt

hi

i dont think so.

Home Remedy For Dark Skin An effective home remedy to cure the problem of dark skin would be to mix 1 tsp of milk powder, 1 tsp of honey, 1 tsp of lemon juice and ½ tsp of almond oil. Make a paste and apply this on the face. Apart from removing the tan, it would also make the skin shine. Take some oatmeal along with curd and tomato juice. Apply this mixture on the face and keep it for about 20 minutes. Wash your face with cold water. Potato acts as a very good bleaching agent. Slice a potato and keep them over the face. This would lighten the marks. Take a little turmeric powder and add a few drops of lime juice. Apply this on the darkened area. This would help to reduce tan effectively. Dry some orange peels. Then, mix them to a bowl of curd. This would be beneficial in removing tan. Keep this for about 15 minutes and wash off with cold water. Another effective remedy to remove tan would be to soak 4 almonds in water and keep it overnight. Grind these almonds to make a paste. Apply this paste at bedtime. In the morning, was off this paste with cold water. Take a tablespoon of gram flour and mix it with 2 tsp of raw milk and 2-3 drops of lime juice. Apply this mixture and leave it for 15 minutes before washing off. Mint leaves work well to remove the dark skin. Take some fresh ground mint leaves and make a paste of it. Keep it for 15 minutes and later rinse of. Grate a tomato and add 2-3 drops of lime to it. Apply this mixture on the face and keep it for 15 minutes. Repeat this two times a day for better results. It is advisable to increase in the intake of water. The more water you have the more toxins flush out from the body and hence have better glowing skin. As per the diet, include whole cereals, vegetables, fruits, pulses etc into your diet.

Hi Nirja,

Multani Mitti Clay, also known as Indian Fullers Earth, is similar to kaolin clay. It is formed by the decomposition of volcanic ash.

This is an effective clay for improving the facial omplexion, the clay absorbs bacteria and toxins from the skin.

If your having oily skin mix this multani mitti in rose water/lemon juice/little honey apply it all over the face and neck, wait till the paste is completely dry and wash off with cold water. you can also add haldi if you have blemishes over your skin.

For dry skin you can mix Multani mitti in milk/butter milk, if you feel it is so dry you can mix a little cream.

Applying multani mitti will make skin smooth and fair. But its not necessary to apply to everyday, you can apply for 3 times a week.

Multani mitti or fuller’s earth makes an excellent cleansing mask and possesses high absorbent qualities to draw oils from our skin.

Make a paste of multani mitti and water and apply to the face. Keep this mask for an hour and then rinse with cool water.

The clay in multani mitti (gypsum) mask helps improve skin complexion and also draws impurities and toxins from the skin. If you suffer from common oily-skin problems of sudden rashes or boils, use this multani mitti pack to draw the excess oil from the skin.

Note: Do not use this beauty recipe if you are allergic to any ingredient. When you put the mitti pack, put ice cold cucumber on your eyes for cooling.

Multani mitti is not advised for dry skin.

mix Multani mitti and rose water (equal)to form a smooth paste. Apply to the skin leaving the area around the eyes. Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes or until completely dry. Rinse off with warm water.

The result is a clear pinkish skin. The tinge is due to the stepping up of blood circulation and all the excess grease and dead cells are cleared away.

Multani Mitti works best with Rose water.I usually use it in summer coz it helps my skin keep cool and looking fresh. Mix 2-3 tbsps of Multani mitti in Rose water just to make a paste and apply on the face.Put cotton dipped in rose water over your eyes and lie down till the pack dries. You wont see any effects immediately but only after alternate day us efor about 2 weeks. Skin also tends to look more transparent n the lingering smell makes you feel rejuvenated for a long time.

applying it regularly makes you fairer.

Hi Nirja,

Yes, multani mitti will make your skin clear and nice. I have used it for years. I used to apply some moisturizer first, then mix multani mitti with rose water, apply it on my face, leave it for 10-15 mins, wash it with luke warm water, then rub ice cube on my face for couple of minutes. This helps to retain your skin texture and wont make it dry. Try it out and let me know your experience.
