There are a lot of rituals without which, a traditional Indian wedding is incomplete. And, one such ritual is the haldi ceremony. In this ceremony, the bride-to-be is anointed with ubtan, a face pack made of various natural ingredients. The ubtan helps the bride to flaunt a radiantly glowing skin on her wedding, as it removes the tan and brightens her complexion.
Well, if applying an ubtan just for once can reap so many benefits, then imagine the result if you apply it every day. So, for all you pretty brides-to-be, here are some natural ubtan recipes that you can start applying much before your haldi ceremony, and get a flawlessly glowing complexion on your wedding.
