Malai is the top layer of boiled whole milk. This coagulated layer is loaded with proteins, lactic acid, which can benefit the skin. It helps to reduce sun damage, exfoliates the skin and works as a great moisturiser. So, if you’re looking for a skincare ritual, which makes your skin supple, fresh cream needs to be your go-to ingredient.
The chickpea flour is known for its anti-inflammatory properties which can help to treat acne. Besan is also loaded with antioxidants, which helps to protect skin from free radicals that cause fine lines, pigmentation and dark spots.
How to make this paste
One of the best ways to use the cream is make it fresh. Once you have boiled the milk, you can let the milk cool down. Once cooled, you can scoop out the top layer of the milk and whisk it in a bowl.
Mix one portion of malai with besan, you can also add a few drops of milk or rose water if the consistency is too thick.
