Milky Way

We know from a very young age that “Milk does a body good” and drinking milk makes our bodies stronger and healthier. But did you know that using milk on your skin is also beneficial?

Cleopatra bathed in milk centuries ago and discovered how smooth and supple it made her skin. Modern science has rediscovered the benefits of milk for your skin. Because milk naturally contains vitamins A and D and probiotics that makes your skin soft, yet strong.

Additionally, the lactic acid in milk has natural beta hydroxy acids which exfoliate your skin, as well as soothe it. Milk eliminates dead skin cells from the surface of your skin while adding essential moisture to improve the overall appearance and condition of your skin.

Skin products may incorporate oat milk, soy milk, cow’s milk, rice milk or goat’s milk. Because goat’s milk has the same pH as human skin, using it on your skin makes it extremely smooth and supple. For more beautiful, glowing skin naturally, consider using milk and milk based products.

Cleansing Agents

Milk makes your skin supple and radiant. Milk has calcium that helps make the skin look good and nice. You may also use a combination of lemon and milk as a cleansing ingredient every morning and evening to take away impurities from your skin and make it look youthful and radiant.

Take a little amount full cream or skim milk in a bowl and mix it with lemon juice and then wipe the solution on your face for 1 to 2 minutes and then wash it away with water.

There you have it, a natural facial wash without using soap. Milk also has ingredients that could moisture the skin.

Milk Mask for Dry Skin

Mix 1 teaspoon of powdered milk with a little warm water. Please use distilled or mineral water. Add 1 teaspoon of honey and mix. Apply. Rinse off with warm, spring water. Experiment with the length of time to leave on. Every skin is different. However, if you feel a burning sensation, rinse immediately. Some people are allergic to honey.

....For Normal Skin
