Use Whole Milk as Anti Aging Mask

Are you taken aback when I say just apply whole milk to your skin?

No combining and mixing of ingredients, just whole milk! Take it and rub it on your skin. You will be surprised by the results you get. You ask why? Why is milk such a great ingredient for your skin?

If you have dry skin, milk will hydrate it. If you have a mature skin, milk will exfoliate it. If you have an irritated skin, milk will soothe it. And if you have a dark skin, milk will lighten it! How?

  • Whole milk has all- water, fat and proteins. Fats in it replenishes the lost natural moisture of your dry skin. Remember, you need to use whole milk that still has all its fat content in it and not the skimmed or toned milk that lack milk fats.
  • Milk has lactic acid, a form of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), widely found in the commercially available exfoliants. The only difference is that milk’s AHA is natural! It reduces wrinkles as well as boosts collagen formation, just what is needed by an aging skin. This also helps in lightening your skin.
  • Milk is an excellent natural cleanser, thanks to all its enzymes. With the help of fat-soluble enzyme called lipase, milk removes all the oil-soluble impurities from your skin. It also has an enzyme called protease which breaks down proteins and peptides. This cleans all the protein based impurities. And due to its lactic acid content, milk removes the dead skin cells making your skin ultra clean.
  • As far as irritated itching is concerned, milk addresses this problem too, It contains proteins such as whey and casein as well as fat, amino acids, lactic acid, and vitamins A and D. All of these nutrients work to soothe your dry, irritated skin.
