Chickpea, Turmeric and Honey
Chickpea is a gentle skin exfoliater and honey moisturises. Chickpeas help skin cells produce energy to fights free-radical damage that causes wrinkles. Honey is also a natural anti-oxidant so it will help protect the skin from UV damage and aid in cell renewal. Turmeric helps to reduce pigmentation on your face and even out your skin tone.
