Moms are moms for a reason! They have a solution for every problem, especially when it comes to beauty. We all have grown up trying homemade remedies that our moms have suggested and most of them actually worked wonders for our body…isn’t it? For instance, almost everyone has tried besan and dahi paste for glowing skin…thanks to our moms and their moms.
Our mothers are the most beautiful women we know (inside and out). Despite the constantly changing hair and makeup trends, some of the best timeless beauty advice we have gotten has come from these incredible women.

“After getting done with work, my mom makes ubtan with simple kitchen ingredients like bread slices, raw milk, lemon juice, and olive oil. She applies this to her face, neck and hands and then takes a shower. And god after that her skin just glows and is super soft!” – Supriya*
“My mom has always been a DIY enthusiast for soft, glowing skin. The secret passed on to us by my grandmother is to make a mask using besan, haldi, malai, honey and rose water. Make a paste using these ingredients, apply for 15 mins and wash. You can clearly see the difference!” – Bhavika*
“An old skincare ritual my mom taught me is to always remove makeup using coconut oil. Just a few drops on a cotton pad and you get your makeup removed without using any chemicals.” – Minal*
