ALL NATURAL DIY SKINCARE
"Good for you and good for the environment"
for Softer Younger Skin
I personally do a lot of cooking, so when I have finished my buttermilk recipes it's easy to have a little left in the fridge that you're not sure what to do with.
Plus we always have fresh whole milk in the fridge for breakfast cereal, and you can also use powdered whole milk as it is the lactic acid and milk fat that does the work for your skin.
Well, now you know you can use it for making milk recipes for natural skin care!
It's simple, only takes a few minutes.
I originally found out about this recipe when I ran out of my main
exfoliating ingredient (dead sea salt and olive oil).
I loved it so much that I now use it frequently, it can be used every other day or as needed.
HOW IT WORKS
If you just need a gentle way to exfoliate your skin, or you want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, this is perfect.
The lactic acid that milk contains has been used synthetically in many anti aging products to remove the extra layers of dead skin.
It also contains healthy fats that moisturize the skin so it wont be dried out when you're done.
It's also great if you're trying to lighten your skin from age spots / dark spots on the skin / liver spots
, the way it naturally lifts those dead layers of skin helps to even out the skin's tone and texture.
YOU CAN ALSO TRY WHOLE MILK, BUT NOT LOW FAT / NO FAT
You can use whole milk as well, however 2%, 1% or Fat free won't work because they lack the needed fat content that is necessary for moisturizing and drawing out toxins.
How To Use It
1. Soak a cotton ball with the milk.
2. Apply to face/body.
3. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
4. Rinse with warm water.
AND WITH A TWIST...
For a double benefit mix about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar with approx. 1 teaspoon of milk or buttermilk.
Rub gently onto your face and neck in a circular motion to really exfoliate those clogged pores (really sticky!).
Leave on for about 5 minutes, then rinse off with warm water and a cloth.
