The benefits

It is said that sabudana is ideal for people who have sensitive skin and suffer from pimple and acne breakouts. In winters, people’s face may turn dry because of the decrease in humidity, and this paste can help nourish it and keep it naturally moist. Also, when applied nicely, it can work as an exfoliant and give your face a nice massage.
