It’s not really a secret right now. All of us know Ancient ladies bathed in milk to keep their skin smooth and good looking. Since we can’t bathe in camel’s milk these days and we aren’t able to take milk baths every time, here’s a little beauty recipe using milk that you can do regularly to keep your skin smooth and fine.

 

All you need is:

  • Powdered/ Fresh Milk and
  • Lemon Juice

Apply and leave it on your skin for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off.

 

That’s everything! Easy, right?

 

Milk is a natural moisturizer that softens the skin. The lactic acid in milk is also known as a gentle, natural exfoliant that removes dead skin cells to reveal younger skin.

 

Lemon which is rich in Vitamin C is known to whiten and cleanse the skin and to kill bacteria.

 

The original recipe, which I learned from my Mom uses Philippine Lemon/Lime called Calamansi which Filipinos use as a natural skin whitener. Filipinos rub it on their elbows and dark spots to even out their skin tone.

Try it and you’ll feel your skin has become softer right away.

 

Enjoy!
