    March 30, 2016 at 10:11 pm

    By using multani mitti daily … Will it effect the glow of skin … Other than drying and for the dryness caused by daily usage be cured by using moisturising cream . Is it okay by using in that way ?

    • Charl

      March 31, 2016 at 6:05 pm

      Hi Varun j, it can help lighten you skin which may have a similar effect to glowing. Using a moisturizer can possibly minimize the the drying effect but note that for the best results, you only to apply the clay one to two times a week.

      Hi Daniel, First protect your skin from anything that may lead to an unfair skin. Protect your skin from direct sunshine since it is one of the main causes of skin pigmentation. Use moisturizers, wear protective clothing such hats to reduce the effects of the sun. Keep your skin free of dirt and dust. Try scrubs, or fairness creams, eat healthy foods especially fruits and vegetables and drinks lots of water
