Bathpowder/Nalugupindi Preparation and Usage

Bathpowder/Ubtan/Nalugupindi
As Indian’s we all have the habit of using Ubtan/Nalugupindi from childhood. When I visited my grand mom place as a kid the usage of this ubtan was more there. My mom learnt quite a few techniques in preparing ubtan which I am gonna share with you all today. I use this atleast twice a week whenever I have a hair wash I prefer using it along.
It makes your skin feel refreshed. Too many chemicals on skin may cause aging on a longer run. So following few steps like these can make your skin look young and refreshed. Removal of Tan is quite simple with this. So let’s get started .
They are 3 types out of which one is a very complex one. If you really have time you can prepare it. Other 2 are very simple and need a very few ingredients. But let me tell you all the results are amazing.

Process 1:
Ingredients:
Green Gram (Pesalu) -1 Kg
Rice  -50grams
Orange Peel -25
Rose petals- 20 Flowers
Steps:
1.We need a little bit of preparation for this. We need to sundry the orange peels for almost 10days.The moisture content should be totally gone. When we are trying to break the orange peel to small pieces .They must break very easily like crisp.
2. Then sundry green gram (Pesalu) and Rice for 3 days. We usually follow this process in order to store it for longer duration. We all know even a little bit of moisture will spoil the whole powder from being preserving for longer period.
3. Now sundry the rose petals for 2 days.
4. Take mixer first add the Green gram (Pesalu) and rice to it and make it to powder. Keep it aside now.
5. Now in the same mixer add orange peel and Rose petals and make them to powder.
6. Now mix this to the Green Gram (Pesalu) and rice powder that we have kept aside.
7. Now you can store this in a dry container.
Usage:
It will stay almost for 6months.This is the basic process that I follow. This improves your texture so much. It really helps in tan removal. I usually mix it will rose water and apply it as a pack. when it is totally dried I just rub the whole pack in clockwise direction and wash it off with cold water.

Ingredients:
Chana dal – 500grams
Rice -50grams
Oats -100grams
Turmeric –As required
Tulsi Leaves- 200grams
Steps:

2. Add all these to a mixer and grind them coarsely.
3.now add 1 table spoon of turmeric to this powder.
4.Store in it a dry container.
Usage:
This lasts up to 3 months. My mom basically uses this with tomato juice. She mixes all these to a paste applies to her face as a pack. After dried just rub it in a clock wise direction. This will help in removing the tan and an extra glow is added to the skin. Wash with cold water.
