6 DIY Tamarind Based Beauty Recipes To Brighten Your Complexion

DIY Tamarind Based Beauty Recipes To Brighten Your Complexion

Known for its delectable tangy flavor, Tamarind is a popular kitchen staple with numerous benifits for skin. This pulpy fruit is loaded with huge amounts of an alpha hydroxy acid called tartaric acid, which renders this fruit with magical skin bleaching and anti-ageing properties. Apart from tartaric acid, tamarind also contains vitamins A, B and C which again play a role in giving your skin a youthful glow. Simply applying tamarind paste to your skin can make it look fairer in a matter of few days.



While preparing tamarind paste, it is advised to let it boil for five minutes in a little water and then extract the pulp after it has cooled as using raw tamarind pulp on your skin might irritate it. Though, this tangy fruit in itself is enough to give you an even complexion with less visible scars and blemishes but mixing it with a few other skin ingredients can multiply its effects on your skin.
