Milk has always been in the public eye as a great beauty aide and is one of those ingredients that is praised online for its beauty benefits to the skin.
It can be used a cleanser. Milk drives out all the dirt and dead skin cells from the clogged pores, preventing further blackheads and acne. It also removes fats from the oily areas and moisturises dry skin areas. Use: Dab a clean cotton ball in milk, apply it all over the face and massage in circular motion for five minutes. Wash with warm water.
Milk is good for dry and flaky skin. It helps replenish lost oils making the skin smooth and moisturized throughout the whole day. Use: Dip a cotton ball in milk and dab all over the face. Allow it to stand for 20 minutes and wash with cold water. For best results, apply a mixture of mashed banana and milk on face, wash after half an hour.
Exfoliating scrub: Milk is naturally rich in AHA (alpha hydroxyl acid) — a compound found in expensive beauty products. It mildly removes excess dead cells off the skin’s surface, thus revealing a soft and radiant skin. Use: Add milk to honey to create a natural scrub. Massage gently and wash with warm water after 15 minutes to get a glowing skin naturally.
