Gently rub the paste into the body before washing off with lukewarm water. This ritual is very helpful for dry and sensitive skin. It reduces ingrowth hair, moisturizes the skin and reduces blemishes. It is especially useful for brides to practice this ritual two times a week 1 month before the wedding.

Since it reduces the body’s contact with any synthetic chemicals, it reduces inflammation, signs of eczema and dermatitis from the body over time. It reduces body odor and sweat by sealing the pores. Using ubtan also keeps the body toned, helps the muscle retain their vitality and keeps the skin looking youthful.

From a simple gram-turmeric-milk paste to Anahata’s Himalayan recipe with 12 exotic ingredients, it can be used in many ways to enhance the bride and groom’s skin. You can mix milk and rose water to the ubtan for luxurious skincare indulgence.
