Mung Bean Facial: The Simplest Way to Natural Skin Care

When it comes to taking utmost care of our skin, natural or kitchen ingredients are always considered as the best. Mung bean is one of such magic component that can give our skin a beauty boost naturally. Here, we are going to show you three different ways to pamper your skin with mung beans. Check out an exfoliating scrub, a face pack and a face mask recipe to give yourself natural mung bean facials and boost your natural beauty significantly:

Mung Bean Facial

(1) Mung Bean Facial Scrub


  • Mung beans – 1 cup
  • Lukewarm water – 1 cup
  • Essential oil – 2-3 drops
  • A face cloth


  1. Make sure that the mung beans you have taken are clean and dust-free. However, do not wash them with water as you need to pulverize them for using as a scrub. So, put them into a blender and make fine powder. Pour it into a bowl and keep aside.
  2. Now, you need to make the face cloth damp. We have taken here lukewarm water for it. But if you wish, you can replace it with warm sage tea of equal quantity. Take the essential oil of your choice. Lavender and rose essential oils are always good options. Just add the essential oil drops to the lukewarm water or warm sage tea and dampen the face cloth by dipping it into the mixture.
  3. After that, place the damp face cloth neatly over your face and press with your fingers lightly. Wait for next 10-15 minutes so that all the oil, dirt and grime stick to the cloth from your face and it gets cleansed perfectly. Then, remove the cloth carefully.
  4. Now, pour the mung bean powder onto your palm in small amounts and exfoliate different parts of your face with it. You must use your fingertips for this purpose and be gentle enough while scrubbing.
  5. Continue the exfoliation for not more than 3 minutes. Finally, rinse it off with fresh cold water.
