5. Two Methods to Make Bitter Gourd Extract

Bitter gourd extract is highly effective in skincare, such as treating acne, dark spots, and brightening the skin. Here are two simple methods for making bitter gourd extract at home:

  • 500ml White wine
  • 500ml Water

  • 500g Bitter gourd
  • 1.5 liters White wine
  • 500ml Honey
