Several tales abound of how Cleopatra would bathe in milk and honey which gave her flawless skin. Indeed, milk has been a known beauty component since time immemorial.

Milk is rich in several nutrients such as vitamin A, D, calcium and protein amongst others making it great for consumption and also a great beauty product. As a first aid remedy, milk is also a known remedy in cases of poisoning. But we digress, here are 4 great reasons why you should consider milk as a beauty product.

 

  1. Great cleanser: Milk can serve as a cleanser, unclogging the pores and softening white heads which  makes them easily removeable. Simply mix two spoon fulls of milk and use a cotton wool to swipe it over your face for smooth, fresher skin.

  2. Moisturises: Milk is rich in cream and vitamin D which makes it great for moisturising the skin. To combat dry skin, simply mix it with a banana mash and apply the mix on your face. Leave for about 30 minutes and wash off for softer, more supple skin.

  3. Exfoliating: Notice how we're covering the major steps of the ideal beauty regimen with milk - cleansing, moisturising and now exfoliating? Milk is rich in alpha hydroxy acid which makes it a great anti-aging formula. It's also a great natural exfoliant when mixed with honey and oatmeal. Try it today for great looking skin.

  4. Toner: Ofcourse it had to cover toning seeing as we've covered the basics. Milk serves as a natural toner and for best results, mix with green tea and apply on the face for about 15 minutes for visibly brighter, clearer skin.
