Amla, in its many wonderful forms has been used since generations. I remember when I was a teenager, and my skin would break out during summers. My grandmother would cook up a secret face pack and, lo and behold, my skin cleared up in no time. I have for you these very skin recipes that you can easily make at home!
There are so many benefits of amla for skin. It prevents your skin from ageing by reducing wrinkles and lines. Amla powder for skin can be used as an exfoliator as well as an astringent because of the amount of anti-oxidants in it. It also helps clear that pesky acne and those blemishes. Amla juice for skin also helps remove the tan you got when you forgot your sunscreen! It is the ULTIMATE saviour!
