Drinking a glass of milk in the morning, every day, can help boost your health. This is because milk contains a number of important nutrients which are beneficial for the body. However, apart from its benefits, milk also serves as a potent beauty ingredient as well. Listed below are some ways in which raw milk can be used for your beauty treatment.
Create a purifying mask. You can mix a couple of tablespoons of milk with a tablespoon or two of honey, lemon juice, baking soda, or all three. Break open a vitamin E tablet for additional purifying power. Your skin needs them as much as your body does!
Apply it to your face (or whatever area you choose) and let it stiffen — this should take about 10 to 15 minutes. Then rinse off with warm water. Your skin should feel smoothed and refreshed.
Make an exfoliating scrub To get rid of that top layer of skin and expose a brand new you, use milk to exfoliate. Take 1 cup of milk and 3 tablespoons of oatmeal and apply it to your skin, gently rubbing it in. The oats provide the grittiness while the milk provides the nourishment.
Allow it time to dry. Then rinse it off with warm water, scrubbing gently. If you’d like to make this in advance, make it with powdered milk and store in your refrigerator.
Or you can soak 1/2 cup of almonds in milk overnight. Then in the morning, grind ‘er up into a paste and apply to your skin, following the same drying and washing routine.
