Milk is a powerhouse of numerous essential nutrients that can benefit you immensely. A tall glass of milk is filled with calcium, iron, potassium, vitamin A, D and B6, B12, protein etc. But who said you have to drink it to reap all the benefits from these nutrients. You can use milk in your beauty regime too and benefit from it. Here are some beauty benefits of milk.
To lighten skin tan
Unwanted skin tan, sunburn and pigmentation can all be dealt by applying milk to it. Milk is high in lactic acid that has skin lightening properties. Apart from that it can also clear away the dead cells on the skin surface too. Take some milk in a bowl and use a soft washcloth to apply in on your skin. Use this remedy three times a week before you take a bath.
As a facial cleanser
Milk is one of the best natural cleansers. Use a cotton ball to apply raw milk on your face to clean it. Rinse it off with fresh water when you’re done. Using milk daily to clean your face will ensure that your face stays clean and clear.
For glowing skin
You can mash half a banana with a few spoons of raw milk to make a paste. You can apply this paste on your clean and damp face and leave it on for 15 minutes before you wash it off. This face pack will smoothen your face and leave behind a healthy glow.
To exfoliate skin
Raw milk contains beta hydroxy acid that is a form of alpha hydroxyl acid. This alpha hydroxy acid acts as a natural exfoliant to remove dead and dry skin leaving behind soft skin.
As a moisturiser
Milk is also a great natural moisturiser and can help soften rough and dry skin. Use a cotton ball to apply milk on your skin and allow it to sit for 15 minutes before you wash it off. Following this routine twice a week will help keep your skin nourished and moisturised.
