This light-coloured Multani Mitti clay is the result of decomposed volcanic ash. The name, Fuller’s earth, comes from this clay’s use in the early English wool industry. It was used by fullers to clean and degrease woolen cloth during the ‘fulling’ process, because of its ability to absorb oil.
Multani Mitti is also one of the earliest substances to be used as a beauty mask. Multani mitti is said to make your skin radiant and appealing by getting rid of blemishes and acne scars. On the other hand, it also hydrates the skin, clears up black heads and whiteheads, and flushes out toxins. Deep cleansing with Multani Mitti helps to remove impurities and dead skin cells, allowing the skin to breathe and absorb moisturizing cream more easily into the skin, leaving you feeling glowing and refreshed!
Multani Mitti or Fuller’s earth has been used by Indian women for centuries to take care of their skincare problems like acne, blackheads, etc. Though most modern women now prefer to use branded products, they could still try using the humble multani mitti as it is not only cheaper but could also save them from side effects of artificial cosmetics.
Multani mitti has a rich content of magnesium chloride which helps in the reduction of acne and blemishes. You can get rid of whiteheads and blackheads naturally with multani mitti. It is very good for oily skin as it absorbs the excess oil thereby reducing the chances of new pimples.

If you have oily skin, make a paste of multani mitti and rose water or water with a pinch of turmeric in it – the paste should be thin in consistency. Apply it on your face and neck area, avoiding the area around the eyes. Leave it to dry and then rinse it off with water. Remember, do not talk or make too many facial movements after you apply any face pack.
If your skin is normal to dry, replace the rose water with milk.
