- whole milk (to form a paste)

Turmeric and chickpea flour are both known for their skin benefits, and are commonly used in homemade skincare remedies.
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It helps brighten the skin and reduce dark spots and has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which can help combat acne and other skin issues. Turmeric is often used in facial masks and scrubs, and can be combined with other natural ingredients such as honey, yogurt, or coconut oil.
Chickpea flour, also known as gram flour, is a natural exfoliant and is often used in facial scrubs and masks as well . It is gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin, and can help remove dead skin cells, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth. Chickpea flour also has skin-brightening properties and can help improve the complexion.
Together, turmeric and chickpea flour can make a potent combination for improving the appearance and health of your skin. One popular recipe is to mix chickpea flour with turmeric and milk to make a paste, then apply it to the face for 15-20 minutes before rinsing off. You can also add other ingredients such as honey, lemon juice, or yogurt to this mixture for added skin benefits.
