It not only acts as a natural cleanser but also helps whiten teeth. And this is not just it. Reach out for mustard oil to look your best, says an expert.

Dermatologist Pragya Gupta, a specialist advisor for P Mark Mustard Oil, shares how you can get the most of mustard oil to boost your overall wellness:

* A make-up remover

It works wonders on the skin as a natural cleanser. It can be used as a make-up remover as well as it doesn’t clog pores. This helps the skin to get cleansed naturally within minutes.

* Good for teeth

Mustard oil is considered one of the best natural ingredients for brushing and when applied with lemon drops and a bit of salt, it makes your teeth shine and become stronger.

* Massage oil

Think about the condition of your hair after you get them styled using chemical based products. The adverse effects on one’s hair after those curls and buns can be managed well with a massage of hot mustard oil. It provides adequate nutrients to the hair and prevents situations like frizziness and hair fall.

* For healthy skin

In case of acne and rashes, apply a few drops of mustard oil for 10-15 minutes daily. It keeps the skin healthy and glowing.

* Fights tan, dark spots and pigmentation

Massaging mustard oil on your face regularly can help reduce tan and lighten dark spots and pigmentation. Make a face mask by mixing mustard oil with besan or gram flour, one teaspoon of curd and a few drops of lemon juice.

Mix the ingredients well and apply it on your face and neck. Wash your face after 10 to 15 minutes and try applying the face mask at least thrice a week for best results.

* For nourishing skin

Dry patchy skin is a common problem that we all face during winter. One can apply a few drops of mustard oil and rub it along the face. Let it remain for a few minutes before washing it in water. The skin becomes smooth.
