This is a process in which a paste of herbal powders in water or other suitable liquids is applied on the body and is rubbed off gently just as it dries. Udwartana with various powders is effective in reducing excessive sweating and bad body odour, in imparting softness and radiance to the body skin as well as in reducing obesity. While masks enhance the beauty of the face, Udwartana does the same for the whole body. The ancient texts set out various medicated compounds for Udwartana. However, men should not use any compound which includes turmeric powder as it will lead to hair loss.
