Thanaka Face Treatments

Traditional Myanmar Thanaka Treatment

Mix 1-2 teaspoons Pure Thanaka Powder with the same amount of water until it forms a creamy paste. Apply the cream evenly over your cleansed face. The mask will dry after 5 to 10 minutes depending on its layer thickness. The mask can easily be washed off with lukewarm water after 20 minutes. We recommend application once or twice a week. As a result, your skin will be smoother, softer and have a more even tone.
