Use milk to keep your skin moisturized all day long {DIY}

I will be posting today a tip to keep your skin moisturized all day long. How? MILK. I have already talked about how milk can be used to maintain a shiny hair. Now, lets see how it takes care of our skin.

Take some raw unboiled milk along with its cream. Dip a wash cloth in it and saturate well. Apply the milk on your face using the wash cloth. Let it stay for 5-15 minutes till it dries. Then, again dip the wash cloth in milk and saturate it. Start scrubbing your face gently with the wash cloth. Scrub for 3-5 minutes. Then, wash off. Your skin will be smooth and supple. It will look fresh and glowing. This routine will improve your skin's elasticity, its complexion, its water retaining capacity and will keep it looking fresh all day long.

You can use this routine for your complete body once in a while. It is a great treat for your body. Instead of putting milk in your bath water or tub, use a wash cloth and saturate it well before applying it on your body. Use a full cream milk or if you can, goat's milk. That's the best for skin care. Do not worry even if you have oily skin. It balances the oil secretion in your skin and your skin would not suffer breakouts. Instead, your skin might turn to a normal type. And, if you are consistent with this routine, you can notice results in as less as 3 days. Your skin would be considerably lighter and glowing. 

Caution: Do not follow this if you are allergic to any dairy products or are lactose-intolerant or even if suffering from acne.

  2. Hi Ash
    I think you have an extremely oily skin which breaks out when oil production increases beyond limit. You should use milk to cleanse your skin. It is suitable for all skin types unless you are lactose intolerant. You can also use yogurt(curd) in place of milk. Both are good for sensitive and oily skin.
    And, regarding usage of vicco turmeric, is there any specific reason why you stopped using it? If you do not feel like putting it on your skin, do not. And, regarding controlling the outbreaks, prepare a face pack with neem and tumeric. That will help control the outbreaks. You can also go for tomato juice. It is extremely beneficial for oily skin without being harsh on the skin. I would not recommend you to use lemon juice on the skin so in case you are using it or going to use it, do not.
    Follow these routines for a week and see if there is any change. I am sure you would definitely find changes.

  3. Hi...

    Milk may be very good for skin but milk available in Mumbai has chemicals i it--urea & even ammonia. So, what to do?

  4. Hi Anu
    That is true that the carton milk is not good for health. It is acutely deficient in nutrients. If you can manage fresh milk straight from cows and goats, that is great. And, if you can not, I would suggest you to stick to besan. Mix it with water. At least it is not drying for the skin. If you get natural honey, that would be helpful. Washing face with green tea and rice water also help a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  5. how to use honey on the face??? pls suggest as i have pimples on my face

    ReplyDelete
  6. simply apply honey on your face and leave it on for 30 minutes...wash off with warm water (lukewarm)...it helps with pimples but will take time to show results...you can do this everyday :)

  7. Hey, hw have u been? I recently happened to read up something wonderful and I am just loving it...well, this is a all natural moisturizer ...and this is the way to follow, (good esp for dry to normal skin)..everyday after bath, before you towel dry...wen you are stillcompletely wet...take 2 drops of Extra virgin olive oil or Jojoba oil and apply it all over your body and even on face...take very little, you dont want to get all greasy...apply all over and later just patdry yourself wid the towel, coz u dont want to rub off all the oil...Its very moisturizing , does not feel greasy...and its natural...I am doing this from a week and getting good benefits.....hope this helps ...

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hey Megha...how you doing??? I have done this but not with olive or jojoba but with coconut but the results are equally good....I am sure it will definitely help others too :)

  10. hey luckygirl....well when you are applying milk you can't avoid milk smell but after you wash it off you wouldn't smell of milk anymore so you need not be frightened on that account and even if you feel of smelling like milk, you can follow with a talc or perfume which would overcome the milk smell...

  12. Hey Swathy...sorry for asking this but is your name really Swathy???sorry for the lame question....
    btw thanks for the kind words...take some raw cold milk in a bowl and dip a wash cloth in it....let the wash cloth soak for a minute...take it out and wring it very little just to avoid excess dripping...apply the milk on your face and neck using the wash cloth....let it dry for 5-10 minutes and then again dip the wash cloth in the milk and scrub your face with the wash cloth for 3 minutes at max...let it dry again and wash off the face with only water of you are doing this at night or with besan if you are doing this in the morning to get rid of the smell of the milk...hope this helps and would love to hear your feedback...

    1. use almond oil. it really helps. take a drop of almond oil and dab it around your eyes. you may take a drop more for the other eye. it doesn't break out the skin so don't worry on that head and a drop doesn't cause oiliness. you will see results in a week or fortnight :)
