Beauty Benefits Of Milk

Milk is rich in vitamins and minerals. As much as we hated drinking the stuff as children, there’s no reason why we wouldn’t use it on our skin now for a clear complexion. Rich in B-vitamins, alpha hydroxyl acids, calcium and other potent antioxidants, milk nourishes skin cells from deep within and helps to keep skin moisturized all day.

Milk Can Cleanse
Milk has the ability to drive out dead skin cells and dirt from clogged pores and can also prevent blackheads and acne. Removing fats from oily areas and moisturizing dry skin areas – it’s perfectly balanced for combination skin.
For Best Results: Douse a cotton pad in milk and apply all over the face, massaging in a circular motion for 5 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and air dry.
Helps Heal Dry and Flaky Skin
As milk can help to replenish lost oils within the skin, it can soothe and ease dry itchy skin. Perfect as a natural aide for eczema and psoriasis sufferers, it encourages a smooth and moisturized visage throughout the day.
For Best Results: As bananas as it may sound, apply a mask of mashed banana and milk to the face and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse with cold water and apply regular moisturizer. Skin will maintain a smoother appearance immediately.

Use as an Exfoliator
Milk is naturally rich in AHA (alpha hydroxyl acid) which is a compound commonly found in pricey beauty products. It works as a mild exfoliator to remove excess dead cells from the skin’s surface, revealing softer and radiant skin. There is nothing harsh or harmful about using it to exfoliate in comparison to expensive beauty products which contain chemicals that may be harmful to sensitive skin.
For Best Results: Combine a tablespoon of honey to warm milk to create this natural scrub. Massage face with mixture and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water to reveal a natural glow.
Use Milk to Lighten Your Tan
If you live in the Middle East, it’s likely that you generally try to stay out of the sun to avoid UV rays, skin pigmentation and catching a patchy tan. Even getting a slight tan can be a nuisance to your makeup regime and can throw off your concealer and foundation. Skin toners are often laced with chemicals and milk is the best natural option out there – especially with its high volume of lactic acid, which contains skin lightening properties, and that can increase elasticity.
For Best Results: mix an equal amount of milk with green tea and use a cloth to apply over tanned skin. Let it air dry for 15 minutes and then rinse off. For rapid results, use 3 times a week before a bath.
Milk Can Soothe Sunburn

There is nothing more painful for the skin than red raw sunburn which is followed by severe unsightly peeling. Cold milk provides immediate relief from inflammation and sun burn. It creates a thin protein film which protects skin whilst soothing the redness and heat sensation.
For Best Results: Full fat milk works best for this skin ailment as it contains healthy fats that have the ability to soothe, repair and lubricate the skin’s surface. Apply all over affected areas and leave on for as long as possible before bathing.
