Milk is great for building strong bones but what about for great skin? When applied topically, milk actually calms skin irritation and gently exfoliates.
That's because milk is a natural anti-inflammatory and it contains lactic acid, which is great for exfoliating sensitive skin. The fat content also increases water retention, thus creating newly moisturized skin.
While skim milk is preferred for the waistline, whole milk is preferred for skin care treatments. It contains more hydrating fat proteins. For some great skin-specific milk treatments, try these out below:
- Irritation and Redness:
- Dry or Sun-damaged skin:
