    Default Chickpea facial mask for acne!?!???


    Hey everyone!

    Has anyone tried a chickpea flour mask? Where do you buy it?
    I've heard it's great for people with oily skin and acne. I would love to try it but no sure what are the benefits.

    Thanks!

    I have never heard of the chickpea treatment, but I use retin A prescribed by my Dr. Not only does it help with acne but it diminishes fine wrinkles and sheds skin to have a healthy glow.

    Thank you for the information. I think I'm going to ask my dermatologist about it. I'm currently taking pills and using 2 different types of prescribed gels. They seem to be working but my pores are still big and I've heard chickpea flour mask can help close/tighten them. Thanks!

    Ok, so I got the correct recipe for this facial mask. You mix chickpea flour and TURMERIC powder with a little bit of milk to create a paste. Apply that paste to your face for about an hour and you can leave it overnight. This paste will help get rid of your acne and give you glowing skin. I googled the recipe before trying it and it most work because so many people have said great things about it. I tried it and saw a difference after the first use.
    WARNING: the paste will be hard once it's dry on you skin. Good Luck!

    This sounds interesting, I might give it a go. I bought some organic tumeric but don't like the taste of it so have been wondering what I could use it for. Now I have something to try! (Leaving out the milk though, since I'm dairy-free.)

    FYI, chick pea flour is also known as "besan flour", and is often used in Indian cooking, so if you have a local Indian grocery you might be able to find it there.

    p.s. apparantly it's known as "gram flour" too!

    I haven't tried this spice on food but I may try it also...just to see taste it.
    I believe the many searches I did.. you can mix Turmeric powder with coconut oil or jojoba oil. I use it with milk because the person who told me about the mask told me it works better with milk but I know you said you're dairy free... but you can try it with one of those oils.

    I've never tried a chick pea facial mask before. Usually, I go to Lush - it's an organic (but super fun and yummy smelling) cosmetics co. I found them last time I was in Chicago. They have REALLY good face masks that feed your skin... and I don't break out at all when I am using them! I just have to make sure that I get up there to get some (I live a little south of Chi-town). Also, I use **Removed outbound link** and change my pillow case every night. I know that that sounds excessive, but I heard it worked so I tried it. I haven't had much of a problem since I've been doing that, so I'm not going to quit!
