At Home Spa – Milk

We use milk a lot. Cold cereal, baked goods, ice cream, cheese, yogurt, etc. We use milk in a huge amount of products. When you think of all of think of all of the things that we use milk in, it can be quite staggering. Well, I am about to add one more place to use milk in that enormous list. Your skin. That’s right! You can use milk on the skin!

As a child, I remember reading fairy tales of queens bathing in milk to keep their skin soft and white. There has to be some truth to that, right? There is!

Milk is loaded with proteins, fat, vitamins and minerals. Milk has a large amount of Vitamins A, D and E. It also contains alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy amino acids as well as lactic acid. These help gently remove dead skin revealing smooth and supple skin.

How might you use milk to create an at home spa treatment a queen would envy?

    I use the powders of milk, buttermilk, yogurt and lavender for a delightful milk bath.

    I also use Yogurt powder in a dry mask for myself.

    I love the bath tea bags for this. In the food processor, I grind up rose petals, mix with powdered milk and package in the bath tea bags. Fabulous milk bath with luxurious flower scent and no measuring or mess.

    The ideas that have been left here sound like they’d be fun to try. Personally, I simply pour a couple of ‘glugs’ of milk and a few swirls of honey directly into my bath (under the hot streaming water and then hand mix before I get in), and it makes a wonderfully moisturizing and exfoliating soak. I sometimes add a teabag of a mixture of rose petals and/or lavender flowers (heat sealed 4″X5″ bag) to make it even more relaxing (note: the heat sealed teabags make making sachets very easy, too). A quick rinse when I’m done, and viola… perfectly lovely skin. Follow it up with a mixture of my favorite lotion and some foot cream, and I feel like a million bucks. It really works! Enjoy!!!

    Another thing I do with milk and honey… I mix a tablespoon of each into a small bowl, mix well and use it as a mask on my face. Good, wholesome stuff and very inexpensive.
