Seasons and trends come and go, so there might be some relationships, oops! – but what has stayed in all the times is the tradition of ubtan. Ubtan, a traditional Indian skincare recipe, has been used in homes for beauty and wellness for centuries. Ubtan ingredients are all-natural, taken from Indian kitchens, bestowing your skin with the softness and goodness of nature.
Traditionally, ubtan has been used in the daily skincare routine. It has been an integral part of Indian weddings, where turmeric ubtan is applied to the bride and groom for a radiant and flawless glow. Ubtan has lost its presence in today’s rushing lives – thanks to our little time and a bundle of work that never gets done.
No, we couldn’t let that goodness go and revive the losing tradition. Lotus Herbals offers a range of ubtan products to ease your skincare routine. From ubtan facewash to Ubtan Face Cream, we have everything to fit into your routine and give your skin the same old love of traditions. In this blog, we will understand its potent ingredients and benefits and how to use this ancient remedy in your modern skincare routine for a daily radiant glow.
What are the benefits of using ubtan?
The ancient recipe started as a wedding tradition and was later used in daily skincare routines by all ages for its manifold benefits.
Natural cleanser and exfoliator
Chickpea flour, a natural cleanser, removes dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin without stripping the skin’s natural oils, leaving clean and clear skin. Chickpea flour and almond powder provide gentle exfoliation, removing dead skin cells, unclogging pores, and promoting a smoother skin texture.
Turmeric is a skin-brightening ingredient in an ubtan that reduces hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and uneven skin tone, resulting in a brighter and more even complexion.
Antioxidants in turmeric and almond powder combat free radicals, reducing signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, and promoting firmer skin.
Ubtan includes lactose in milk or curd, which hydrates the skin, maintains moisture, and makes it supple and soft – your natural Ubtan Cream!
Rose water has natural astringent properties that tone the skin, tighten pores, and calm skin inflammation and redness.
Promotes blood circulation
While taking off the ubtan, the massage stimulates blood circulation, reflecting a healthier and more radiant skin.
Turmeric and sandalwood have excellent anti-inflammatory and healing properties. They soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and alleviate the skin healing process.
The natural fragrance of ingredients like sandalwood and rose ubtan works as aromatherapy, promoting relaxation and reducing stress.
What are the key ubtan ingredients?
The magic of ubtan lies in its simple yet powerful ingredients. These ingredients are all-natural and available right in your kitchen.
Chickpea flour (besan)
Rich in vitamins and minerals, chickpea flour is the base ingredient in ubtan, which is a natural cleanser, exfoliator, and skin revitaliser.
Popular for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, turmeric brightens the skin, reduces pigmentation, heals skin infection and inflammation, and makes skin tone even. Excess amounts of turmeric could temporarily stain the skin, so be cautious with its amount.
Rose water (gulab jal)
It is made from rose petals, rich in natural astringent properties, adding a delightful fragrance to the ubtan.
Raw milk (doodh)
Raw milk contains lactic acid, a gentle cleanser and moisturizer, which exfoliates dead skin cells and hydrates the skin.
Sandalwood powder/oil (Chandan)
A luxurious ingredient, it is popular for its fragrance and cooling and soothing properties.
Almond powder/oil (badam)
Almonds are rich in vitamin E and antioxidants, improving skin texture and softness.
Another luxurious ingredient, saffron, comes with excellent anti-ageing and healing properties.
How to apply ubtan?
Applying ubtan isn’t difficult, but a lengthy process. Let’s see what it all takes:
- The first step is to make the ubtan. Mix or customize the basic ingredients according to your skin type and requirements. The quantity should be enough to cover your face and neck.
- Now, wash your face with a gentle cleanser to remove dirt and makeup.
- Once the face is clean, pat it dry and apply the ubtan mix. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
- As it starts drying, gently massage in circular motions to remove the ubtan. If it dries up, damp it with water before massaging.
- Remove the residue with water and pat dry.
- Finish off with a moisturizer and sunscreen.
