Milk is One of the Healthiest Food Sources

India is one of the world's largest producers and consumers of milk. It produces enough milk to fill over 44,000 Olympic sized swimming pools! And why not, we know that regular consumption of milk in our day to day dietary routine gives our health a boost. This post will tell you how to use raw milk in your skin care regime to reap its beauty benefits. Now, who needs those expensive spa products when you've got milk in the house?

Natural Face Cleanser

Raw milk is an amazing natural facial cleanser. It will drive out the entire gunk from within clogged pores, preventing further blackheads, acne and more. You can dip a cotton ball in raw milk and wipe your face with it. Rinse off your face with fresh water after 5 minutes. Doing this daily will provide you with a clean skin from the inside-out besides making it fair and supple. Image Courtesy: Getty

 

Great Moisturiser

Got dry flaky skin? Use this simple raw milk home remedy that will soften dry, rough skin and remove flaky skin cells. Dip a cotton ball in cold raw milk and dab all over your dry skin. Allow it to sit for 15 to 20 minutes. When the mask is drying up, don't move your face muscles as you may stretch the milk mask and cause fine lines. Wash off with cool water. Your skin will be moisturized and soft throughout the whole day! Image Courtesy: Getty

 

Lightens Complexion

All you need to do is apply raw milk all over your face and neck; and leave it for 10 minutes. Rinse off with fresh water. This will make your skin fairer and softer within minutes. The high lactic acid content in milk not only has skin lightening properties but will also help scrape away dead cells on the skin's surface. Image Courtesy: Getty

 

Exfoliates Skin

Beta hydroxy is a lactic acid, a form of alpha hydroxy acid found in raw milk. This potent alpha hydroxy acid mildly scrouges excess dead cells off the skin's surface, revealing soft skin underneath.  Image Courtesy: Getty

 

Soothes Sun Burned Skin

Use a cotton ball or a soft washcloth dipped in cold milk to soothe and relieve sunburns. Milk creates a thin protein film that protects skin and cools off burning sensations. Use whole fat milk for sunburns as it contains healthy fat that soothes skin and also lubricates it. Image Courtesy: Getty

 

Provides Youthful Skin

Vitamin D present in raw milk can bestow upon you a youthful glowing skin. It boosts collagen production, slows down fine lines and wrinkles. It also protects skin from free radicals that cause premature ageing; helps fade dark spots and marks. Not just this, because it constitutes calcium, you can combat acne and saggy skin by applying raw milk to your skin daily. Image Courtesy: Getty

 

Fights Wrinkles

Raw milk has lots of protein that helps repair and growth of skin tissues, promoting strong wrinkle-free skin. Lactic Acid, another important component present in it, hydrates and nourishes dry skin.  Image Courtesy: Getty
