Ghee or also known as liquid gold can be found in almost every kitchen. We use it for boosting our health and immunity due to its nutritional composition. But it is a lesser-known fact that it can also do wonders for your skin and hair health. In Ayurveda, there are mentions of ‘shata dhauta ghrita’. This means 100 times washed ghee which is also one of the purest forms of ghee. This is also the most effective ghee which can help in soothing skin with its light and fluffy texture.
