Bath Time Milk

How many times have we been told to drink our milk? We drink milk as a baby and as we grow older we are always reminded to drink milk for our bones.

Sure we know that milk, with its load of calcium, vitamins and minerals, is not only good for bones and teeth, but also helps boost the immune system and ward off diseases.

But did you know that milk is also a beauty ingredient. Have you ever wondered if it is true that Cleopatra, the Egyptian glamour queen, have a daily milk bath to keep her skin young ang supple?
Milk contains lactive acid, which helps exfoliate, remove dead skin cells and whiten skin. It helps
moisturize, soothe, cleanse and nourish your skin.

Would you like to try using milk in your bath. If yes, then here are two ways to do it.

If you have a bath tub then you can really soak in a milk bath. Fill the bath tub with warm water.
Put 2 cups powdered whole milk, 2 cups whole milk(liquid) and 1 cup honey. If you have oily skin, you can add 2 tablespoons of juice of lemon, lime or calamansi. If you have dry skin, you can add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix and let the ingredients soak together for 5 minutes. Then get in the tub, soak and enjoy. When you're done, make sure to rinse off with clean water.

If you do not have a bath tub then you can use this milk shower gel. To make a milk shower gel, mix together equal parts powdered whole milk and honey then adjust until it has a gel consistency. Apply and massage to your whole body just like a regular shower gel. When you're done, rinse off with warm water.

You'll have soft and radiant skin!
