Ingredients needed to prepare ubtan are: 1 tablespoon almond paste, 1 tablespoon cashew paste, 1 1/2 teaspoons pistachio paste, 1 tablespoon malai (skin of boiled milk), 1 tablespoon wheat germ oil, 1 tablespoon rose water, 1/4 cup red lentil paste, chickpea flower (to thicken).

Method: Grind all the mentioned nuts in a blender until powdered, then add the remaining ingredients. Once you get a fine paste, massage it in upward motion onto your face and leave it to dry for a few minutes. Rinse with cold water.
