In a blender/Mixer powder all ingredients. The powder should be little coarse. Keep the powder in a airtight container. You can use in place of your regular face wash.

You can mix a tsp of the above powder with raw milk/hasi haalu/pachi paalu and apply it on your face. When it is dry rub your face in circular motions. You can see all the dry powder falling away. Wash your face with cold water and pat dry your face.
