Dr Bangia says, “Malai hydrates and exfoliates the skin at the same time. It helps in bringing a natural glow to the weary skin while removing dirt, toxins, and germs from the skin.” Moreover, since malai moisturises your skin and tightens up the pores, you’ll also notice fine lines and wrinkles fading away.
