Get Beautiful Skin with Multani Mitti

Multani mitti is a popular ingredient used in facial and hair masks in India. It is easily available in every nook and corner of the country. However, most people in the Western world are totally unaware of this very useful product that can give you glowing, healthy and clear skin and that too at a very low cost.

What is Multani mitti?

Multani mitti is believed to get its name from an area in Pakistan, that is, Multan. "Mitti" means "mud" and Multani mitti means "mud from Multan". The Western world knows it by the name of Fuller's earth. This mud is mainly used for skin and hair because of its excellent cleansing and astringent properties. You will find this as an ingredient in many beauty products sold in India and Pakistan.

How to use multani mitti for skincare

You will need to soak this clay in plain water for about an hour so that it can easily be blended with other ingredients and applied on your face. When applied on the face, the mask will begin to tighten on your skin.

Wash it off as soon as the pack is completely dry. Take a look at a few multani mitti facial masks and try it out to get a clear and glowing complexion.

Multani mitti for acne and scars

Multani mitti is quite useful for all your skin problems. It can easily help reduce pimples and control excessive oiliness on your face, leaving your face look fresh, clean and younger.

Just add a few drops of lemon juice and a teaspoon of rose water to your multani mitti face mask. Combine it with a teaspoon of neem or sandalwood powder. Make a smooth paste and apply it on your face.

Leave it on for 30 minutes. This is an excellent face mask for acne-prone skin and will reduce pimples as well as reduce their scars.

This pack can also be used to tighten pores and reduce oiliness for people with oily and greasy skin. It is quite effective for reducing the occurrence of blackheads and whiteheads.

Multani mitti for pigmentation and tanning

Worried about the pigmentation on your face? Multani mitti is quite a face-saver here!

Grate a potato and squeeze out its juice. Add this to your clay mask. Add a little bit of olive oil to the mask. If applied on a daily basis for 15 minutes each day, this pack will soon reduce pigmentation and give an even tone to your skin.

You can also add cucumber juice to the paste instead of potato. Raw milk can also be added instead of olive oil. One vitamin E capsule added to this mask will further help in reducing the pigmentation.

Another useful pack for reducing pigmentation and tanning is to combine Fuller's earth with coconut milk and a little bit of sugar powder. Coconut milk is an excellent ingredient for giving an even and glowing complexion to the face. Combined with multani mitti it will help remove suntan and get back your original complexion.

Multani mitti for skin whitening

Many Indians around the world are obsessed with getting fairer skin. There are numerous products available in the market which claim to give a fairer look to your skin. However, what most people don't know about is that the easily available and chemical-free Multani mitti is much better than these chemical products.

Multani clay is an excellent ingredient for lightening the skin complexion. It gives a beautiful and healthy glow to the skin. Combine the clay with another popular Indian skin remedy called besan. Also known as chickpea flour, besan is another useful remedy for glowing and clear skin.

Add tomato or lemon juice to this pack. Both tomato and lemon juice are excellent for lightening the complexion of your skin. Apply this paste for 20 minutes and scrub it off slowly. Use this clay face mask twice a week and you will notice a difference in your complexion within a few months.

I have one question. Do I use multani mitti regular . daily use krne se koi side effect to nhi hoga ...jda dry skin to nhi hogi

BetterAlive (author) on May 23, 2016:

Hi Parul,

As I mentioned in my previous comment, wash it off when it dries. It will dry up within 15-20 minutes.

All the best!

parul on May 22, 2016:

aftr applyin this on face..(leave until dry then wash or i leave it for 2,3 hrs? is it any harmful effect to leave paste on my face more than 2 hrs. bcz turmeric and lemon also include undr the paste..and lemon and turmeric is not good to more than 15,20 mint?

may b it reduce spots but burn area by adapalene gel still same..

BetterAlive (author) on May 22, 2016:

Hi Parul,

Use once a day. Add pinch of turmeric.

All the best!

parul on May 22, 2016:

today i applied multani rose water and lemon...not turmeric it is usefull or u give any suugestion more? and how many time i use in a day?

BetterAlive (author) on May 21, 2016:

Hi Parul,

Take about 3-4 teaspoon multani mitti powder and then make a paste. It should be liquid enough so that you can easily apply on the face, but it shouldn't be so watery that it just drips all over you. Get the pack ready and let it stay for about 30-60 minutes. Then apply on the face. Use rose water to get the right consistency.

Leave until dry. Remove using water, moving your fingers in a circular fashion. Let your face dry on its own. Don't use towel.

Best time to apply is before going to sleep. Remove and apply an oil-free moisturizer. If you have an anti-scar gel, apply it just on the scars and go to sleep.

All the best!

parul on May 21, 2016:

i dont want to go ..and i dont want to apply gel i hate u tell me 1pinch of turmeric, 1 teaspoon lemon,rose water, and how much multani mitti add?? and use this paste on effected area or all over? and only 1 time in a day..

BetterAlive (author) on May 20, 2016:

Hi Parul,

Burning for 6 days on using the medication is usually expected. If you are concerned about it, you can talk to the doctor. He or she would be able to tell you what to do. Do note that you will see a much quicker result with the gel. If the irritation is bearable, try it continuously for at least 2 weeks. If you just can't bear it, stop using it. Again, do consult your doctor if you are too concerned.

With multani mitti, it will take at least a month to see result, but your skin will feel fresh and clean instantly.

Add only a pinch of turmeric to your face pack. Not more than that. There is no harm in using it for as long as you want.

All the best!

parul on May 20, 2016:

i reay dont knw waht to do.. go with multani , adapalene gel or homopathy medicine ... adaplene gel burn then i stoped.. should i taken a wrong decisn? but my skin burn aftr 6 days aftr using it..

BetterAlive (author) on May 20, 2016:

Hi Niya,

It will depend on why you have brown scars. If these are because of acne or burns, multani mitti can really help. Please use the paste given in one of the previous comments or in the article and use it regularly. It will take time but you will notice that the scars would lighten over time.

All the best!

BetterAlive (author) on May 20, 2016:

Hi Parul,

For some people, all chemicals cause a problem. Probably this is the reason why Adapalene causes issues for you. Furthermore, it does tend to burn a little for the first few days and then it is OK. If you have tried it for more than 2 weeks and it still burns, it is probably not a good idea to use it.

You can try homeopathic medicines. This is completely your choice.

All the best!

niya on May 20, 2016:

how i remove brown scars on my face?

parul on May 20, 2016:

i have a combination skin.. adaplene gel causes side effect redness,itching etc, dats why happens with me...thanku for you suggestion.. but should i go homopathy meicines?

BetterAlive (author) on May 19, 2016:

Hi Parul,

Seems like your skin is very sensitive. If these products are irritating your skin, don't use it. Multani mitti does work on the pimple scars. Just add a pinch of turmeric powder, a teaspoon of lemon juice, a teaspoon of rose water and apply on the whole face. While removing the paste, use a scrubbing action. Use it daily for a week and then reduce it to twice a week. It will take time, but it will definitely work!

All the best!

parul on May 19, 2016:

hi..toothpaste burn my skin i applied on pimple.. it left brown marks..i concern with doctor suggest me to use adaplene gel but it burn my skin too.. does multani mitti wrks on brown marks

BetterAlive (author) on September 18, 2015:

Hi Arun,

Try multani mitti. Take about 3-4 teaspoons of multani mitti, a pinch of turmeric, a teaspoon of lemon juice and rose water to make a paste. If you can get sandalwood paste, take equal amounts of sandalwood and multani mitti to make the paste.

Apply for 20 minutes, scrub it off your face. Use it every 2 days. Use sunscreen when you go out in the sun.

All the best!

BetterAlive (author) on August 12, 2015:

Hi Salman,

If you want to use all these ingredients, make a paste by taking approximate quantities like this:

multani mitti - 1 teaspoon

sandalwood powder - 1 teaspoon

neem powder - 1 teaspoon

lemon juice - 1-2 teaspoons

rose water - as much as you need to make a paste that can be easily applied on the face.

Add about 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric or haldi to it also.

All the best!

Hi Tweety,

If you are using multani mitti, try applying oil at night before going to sleep and then apply it in the morning and wash after 30 minutes.

Multani mitti is a good cleanser and it cleans your scalp and hair giving it a good glow. For hair fall, try using reetha or methi. Read about these at the below links:

BetterAlive (author) on April 02, 2015:

Hi Rahman,

There is no problem in using multani mitti every day. But sometimes, people complain of excessive dryness when they use it daily. So, just watch out for it.

If your skin feels too dry, switch to using 2-3 times a week. Or use a good oil-free moisturizer.

All the best!

RAHMAN on April 02, 2015:

Has there any problem on using multani mitti everyday on mah face

hm234 on March 02, 2015:

Thankyou so much BetterAlive! You're amazing :D

BetterAlive (author) on March 01, 2015:

Hi hm234.

You can use multani mitti everyday. It is slightly drying and so are the products that you are using. So, you will need to work out a balance here for yourself.

For example, you can try it daily for 7 days, see how your skin feels. Don't expect quick results, but you will be able to at least assess how your skin feels. Does it feel too dry or are you OK with it. If it feels OK, continue to for about 15-20 days, then cut it down to about twice a week and stick to it.

If not, just twice a week is enough. Think of it as your weekly face pack.

Since you are using these products, don't put lemon juice in your face pack. Just use multani mitti powder, a pinch of turmeric powder, and make a paste with rose water. Apply on the skin. Wait for about 20 minutes or till dry. Scrub slightly while removing, but not too harsh.

After this, you can apply the acne gel on your pimples.

Best time to do is before going to sleep. Just put on the face pack, wash, apply the gel and go to sleep. Your skin will have time to absorb the benefits from both things that way.

And yes, it will definitely work on the scars because of its lightening properties!

All the best!

hm234 on March 01, 2015:

I'm 15 and I'm suffering from acne since 2 years. I know its due to hormonal imbalance. I've tried using everything. Every possible home remedy. But everything failed. At the moment I'm using Acne Crash Bar which contains benzoyl peroxide, twice a day. And Dann Acne Gel twice a day. I want to give Multani Mitti a try but I'm not sure how I should balance it with my other two products. How many times should I apply it? And will applying it everyday give me quicker results? The scars just wont go!

Thanks again x

BetterAlive (author) on February 04, 2015:

Hi Nidhi,

If your acne is severe, it may be related to hormonal changes. This can occur due to change in lifestyle, for example you have become excessively busy, or due to changes in your sexual life or pregnancy, or change in food habits. Could be a number of reasons.

In such cases an endocrinologist could help.

Try out home remedies for about 2-3 months and if they don't help at all, you may want to consult a doctor.

Use a good face pack, either use multani mitti or besan. Add a little bit of turmeric to the pack. Make a paste with rose water or lemon juice.

You can also use neem. Read about it here:

Apply twice a week. If your pimples are filled with pus or blood, don't scrub. If not, gently scrub while taking off the face pack after about 20 minutes. Apply a oil-free moisturizer. Use a acne gel on the pimples at night to make them disappear quickly.

Don't use soap. Use a oil-free face wash. Wash only twice a day. Don't wash excessively. Don't touch your pimples. Keep the skin free of oil using tissue paper. Just blot to remove sweat or oil.

Drink amla juice. Read about it here:

Just have patience. Eat a good diet. A vitamin supplement can be quite helpful. So, continue taking it. Eat fresh fruits, vegetables and avoid fried, fatty spicy foods.

BetterAlive (author) on January 29, 2015:

Hi Suravi,

Try using multani mitti with lemon juice and pinch of turmeric for the face. Use it thrice a week for a month and then cut it down to twice or once a week.

For the back also you can use multani mitti or besan while bathing. Just apply on the back, wait for 5 minutes and then slowly rub it off. Wash with lukewarm water and wrap a towel around your body. Allow the water to dry on its own.

Try this for a month and see if it helps. If not, you may want to consult a doctor and take help for hormonal problems.

All the best!

suravi on January 29, 2015:

BetterAlive (author) on December 21, 2014:

Hi Paani,

Multani mitti can help with the pimples and black scars. Use it twice a week by making a paste with rose water or lemon juice. A pinch of turmeric or haldi will also help.

Make sure to drink at least 10 glass of water. Avoid fried and fatty foods.

Exercise. This is going to help your skin problems as well as help you gain weight.

For gaining weight, eat foods such as eggs, lean meat (chicken), dairy products (milk, paneer, butter) and fruits.

All the best!

BetterAlive (author) on December 04, 2014:

Hi Jack fruit,

If your skin is oily and dull, you probably need a good cleansing routine. You can use multani mitti for this purpose. Just make a paste of multani mitti with rose water and apply on the face for 20 minutes.

Wash it off by wetting your hands with plain water and gently massaging your face. This will help remove the dead skin cells from the face.

Then apply a good oil-free moisturizer.

Apply the mask twice a week.

Follow a good cleansing routine every day. Use a oil-control face wash, twice a day. Apply your moisturizer.

All the best!

jack fruit on December 03, 2014:

BetterAlive (author) on November 16, 2014:

Thank you, Meena!

I hope you are using multani mitti too! It gives you a glowing and clear complexion.

All the best!

meena on November 16, 2014:

Good advice for healthy skin

BetterAlive (author) on November 11, 2014:

Hi Kay,

You are welcome!

Multani mitti is a little drying for the face. So, twice a week is the best thing to do.

If you do plan on using it daily, you can still do it. It won't damage your skin. If you feel your skin is excessively dry because of it, just add a little bit of milk cream or milk instead of lemon juice. But only use milk cream or milk if you don't have pimples or oily skin. Also, make sure to use a good moisturizer after washing it off.

All the best!

BetterAlive (author) on November 11, 2014:

Hi Jonty,

Turmeric is an Indian spice. You can buy it from a herbal store. Just use a pinch of the powdered form, that is, use your thumb and index finger, pick a little bit of the powder and put it in the mask. Too much of it leaves a yellow color on your skin, so you should use only a pinch. And you can use it any of your face masks.

All the best!

All the best!

kay on November 11, 2014:

thank u for ur reply and one more question can we use multani mitti everyday or is that bad for your skin ?

jonty on November 10, 2014:

BetterAlive (author) on November 09, 2014:

Hi Kay,

Sure, you can use multani mitti without lemon and haldi. You can add rose water to make the paste, it will work as a good cleanser and will make the skin softer.

All the best!

kay on November 09, 2014:

hi can we use multani mitti on its own without lemon and haldi for acne clearance..

BetterAlive (author) on November 09, 2014:

Hi Pooja,

Use multani mitti, lemon juice and pinch of haldi. Use this face mask twice a week.

All the best!

BetterAlive (author) on November 09, 2014:

Hi Monika,

Multani mitti shouldn't be causing acne, instead it cures acne. It is possible that lemon is causing a reaction on your face.

If you are using a doctor prescribed medication, it could be a reaction because of the medication and the lemon juice.

Stop using lemon juice, instead just use multani mitti with rose water. I hope what you are using is really multani mitti and not something else being sold in the name of multani mitti. Please do check this also.

Or you could use besan with haldi and rose water.

All the best!

Hi Saksham,

You are at an age where brown spots and pimples are quite common due to hormonal changes. It will probably disappear on its own once your hormones settle down.

Safi is quite good since it contains neem. You could also try out a pack made of neem leaves. Check this article for more information on neem:

My hands are slightly darker than my face. Can multani mitti help?

BetterAlive (author) on September 30, 2014:

Hi Bi,

Firstly, please don't feel so bad about the way you look. You should have confidence in yourself and should go out and face the world irrespective of the way you feel.

Secondly, if you are a teenager, your problem maybe due to hormonal issues. You may want to consult an endocrinologist since a skin doctor may not be able to help.

Thirdly, don't try too many things on your face. It's only going to make it worse. Use multani mitti, a pinch of turmeric, and teaspoon of lemon juice and rose water. Make a paste and apply it on your face. Do this twice or thrice a week.

If you have pimples, use an acne gel before going to bed at night.

Let the face pack do its work on the spots. It will take time but these will lighten over time.

Use a face wash meant for oily skin. This will keep the pimples under control as well as give you a good complexion.

All the best!

BetterAlive (author) on September 30, 2014:

Hi Aanya,

Since you are at an age when hormonal issues can be a problem your hair fall as well greying could be because of that.

I suggest that you watch your diet firstly. Go for fresh fruits and vegetables and just stay away from fried and fatty foods.

Try a multi-vitamin supplement. You can pick one from the chemist or ask your doctor for a suggestion.

Try changing your shampoo. It is possible that the chemicals in your shampoo are responsible for your hair problems. Search for a herbal shampoo and try it. You could also make your own shampoo. Check out this link for it:

Hi Jasspreet,

Your skin is clearly oily.

For pimples, use multani mitti and turmeric paste. Use it twice a week. Use an oil-free moisturizer after you use the pack. You can just pick any good oil-free moisturizer from the market. Lakme, Ponds, Lotus and all big brands sell these oil-free moisturizers. Use it after face wash and your skin will not feel dry and will also not become oily after 2-3 hours.

You could also try aloe vera gel for your skin.

All the best!

If want to gain weight, you should drink whole milk or full-cream milk.

BetterAlive (author) on August 27, 2014:

Hi Pavi,

Multani mitti does tend to make the skin dry. So, if you feel that it is making your skin too dry, avoid using lemon. Instead use rose water.

You could also try besan and haldi instead of multani mitti. You can read about besan here:

Please do not rub these things on your face or body. They may spread the infection.

If the acne is severe (it seems to be in your case), especially if it looks more like boils than small pimples, with blood or pus, you may want to consult a doctor.

Watch what you eat. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink lots of water. It will help in cleansing your system from the inside and give you a clearer skin.

Hi Divya,

If you feel the Vaseline sunscreen lotion is working for you, continue using it. Try Lactocalamine or Lotus Sunscreen, or any sunscreen that is especially made for oily skin. It will be much more helpful. Even with sunscreen, try to avoid direct exposure to sun as much as possible.

Hi mam thank you for ur suggestion , yes I use Sunscreen but could you suggest me the sunscreen wch reflects more . Iam using vasceline now

BetterAlive (author) on June 29, 2014:

Hi Aishwarya,

It is perfectly OK to apply it everyday if you feel that it helps you better. Just make sure that it doesn't dry your skin too much. Use an oil-free moisturizer to keep dryness away.

Since you seem to get too many pimples, just make sure to use an oil-free sunscreen lotion when you go out in the sun. It is possible that you are getting these because of the sun.

All the best!

Hi Divya,

Is it possible that your hands and neck are getting tanned? If you are using sunscreen on your face, it may not be getting tanned. But your neck and hands are because you are not using sunscreen on it.

If this is the reason, try using a sunscreen on the neck and hands. Apply lemon juice for removing tan. If you are using multani mitti, then apply it on your face and neck too.

You can also use besan for bathing to remove tan.

All the best!

Hi Arjun,

Keep your face clean. Don't touch it too often. Protect your face from the sun.

Use Multani mitti and haldi and lemon juice on your face twice a week. It will work on the pimples, reduce oiliness and reduce dark spots too.

Use a good pimple gel for individual pimples.

am suffering from acne,oily skin,pimpls,dark spots etc... How can I remove this

BetterAlive (author) on May 26, 2014:

Hi Amna,

Usually multani mitti does not increase breakouts. However, sometimes turmeric or lemon juice can increase breakouts. Even processed besan can do this.

Also, if you have pimples, avoid scrubbing too harshly while removing the mask as this can also increase pimples.

All the best!

Amna on May 25, 2014:


Is it normal to break out when first starting to use multani mitti face mask?

BetterAlive (author) on May 19, 2014:

Hi Durga,

Yes, lactocalamine can be a good thing to use after removing the mask. In case you have hair on your chin and you are using some chemical to remove it, the pimples could be because of that. So, just keep a watch on that. Otherwise, lactocalamine is a good alternative to use.

All the best!

Hi Sachin,

There is nothing that change your complexion from dark to completely white. However, what you can do is use things that can improve your complexion, remove sun tan, and give it a healthy glow. This will make you look fairer.

Try Multani mitti mask with lemon and turmeric twice a week. Use a good sunscreen when you go out in the sun. Eat a lot of fresh fruits and juices and whole grains. Exercise five times a week at least 30 minutes a day. Exercising makes you sweat and releases toxins from your skin and gives it a healthier and fairer look.

All the best!

Hi skin colour is black ..will u please give tips for me to become white..

BetterAlive (author) on May 11, 2014:

Hi Shobana,

If you use multani mitti, haldi and rose water twice a week, it should be enough. However, if you feel that you have too many pimples and you need to use it daily, you can do this too.

Multani mitti is drying on the skin, so if you plan on using it daily, make sure to use a good oil-free moisturizer so that it doesn't dry too much.

All the best!

Add Your Comment..hi ...i ve pimples on my face . shall i use multani metti add kasturi manjal with rose water ??shall i use tat daily...tat will give a good result??

BetterAlive (author) on May 06, 2014:

Hi abi,

Twice a week is fine for using multani mitti and lemon juice. You probably feel it tighten on your skin. That's perfectly normal. Just don't move around or talk when you apply the face pack. Lie down or watch some TV and wash after 20 minutes or once it is dry.

Those small pimples may be a sign of allergy. You may be allergic to something present in the Lakme foundation cream. What exactly? You may need to find out for yourself. You could try using the compact or the liquid foundation instead of the cream and see if it works better for you.

All the best!

You should try eating foods such as bananas, whole fat milk, brown bread, eggs, nuts, cheese, potatoes on a regular basis. Avoid fried and fast foods. Drink water and fruit juices.

All the best!

Hi Saurabh,

Firstly, if you are using home remedies, you need to be patient. You may see results in a month but complete resolution is usually not possible.

The black spots on the nose could be blackheads. Use multani mitti or besan and scrub the area when it is dry. This will reduce the blackheads.

For scars, multani mitti and lemon juice are quite useful. Or you can try besan and turmeric and lemon juice.

All the best!
