Our body needs protein and so does our skin. The best way to provide protein to our skin is by adding lots of lentils in our everyday skin care list. Though it is on you to pick the right lentil for your skin, one lentil that can be used on any skin type is masoor dal.
Orange in colour, the high protein content of masoor dal, when applied on the skin, shows distinct results.
