Ebony.com Feature: Reshma "Ubtan" Face Mask
Reshma Beauty® "Ubtan" Turmeric Face Mask was featured on Ebony.com as a 'Summer Beauty Product to Help You Slay'.Containing just four simple natural ingredients that come with a plethora of benefits, it is no surprise that Ubtan would be a top choice as a skin booster not only for the summer, but all year round.
Here are the top three reasons you should make Ubtan part of your regular skin care routine.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY & ANTI-OXIDANT PROPERTIESTurmeric has been used in Indian cuisine and medicine for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties for centuries. Applying turmeric topically on the skin will help reduce mild skin irritations, as well as even out overall skin tone. People with skin issues ranging from acne to psoriasis report great relief even with the first few uses of Ubtan. And if you tend to have dark circles or puffiness around the eye area, applying this Turmeric-based mask will help reduce their appearance, leaving you with a more refreshed look.
THE UBTAN GLOWThe naturally occurring pigment of the Turmeric root has been renowned as the source of natural glow-boosting properties and has long been used in traditional Indian wedding ceremonies. Ubtan illuminates the skin, leaving you with a natural glow - using nothing but natural, plant-based ingredients.
Gram (chickpea) flour, which is part of the Reshma Beauty Ubtan formula, also acts as a skin brightener, helping lighten dark spots and pigmentation.
EXFOLIATING TRI-FECTAThe mild exfoliating particles of Turmeric and Sandalwood, contained in Ubtan, work as a skin-boosting trifecta: they exfoliate away dead skin cells and impurities, allowing your skin to breathe and regenerate; they gently massage the skin, increasing blood circulation and leaving it with a healthier, more vibrant look; they also remove fine facial hairs for a smoother appearance.
An additional hack for the days when you're not using Ubtan as a mask: you can mix a small amount of the mask with coconut, or any other gentle unrefined, oil and use the mixture as an all-natural make up remover. Follow up with the Reshma Beauty® Turmeric Moisturizing Soap Bar to wash off residue and double up on the glow effect.
HOW TO USE:Ubtan traditionally comes in dry powder form. To use it, mix 2-3 tablespoons with a moisturizing ingredient that suits your skin type.For oily to normal skin, mix with Reshma Beauty® Rose Water Toner to help restore the pH balance of your skin and add cooling properties.
For dry skin, mix with a heavy cream or unsweetened plain yogurt to help replenish the moisture your skin is craving for.
Let the mask sit on your face until dry, about 7-10 minutes. On lighter skin tones, it is recommended to start off with Ubtan as a scrub, to prevent excess color-staining from the natural yellow pigment contained in Turmeric.
After recommended time, wash off the mask with water and follow up with the Turmeric Moisturizing Soap Bar - and enjoy the radiant look of your skin!
