Cleopatra had it right! Cleopatra was famous for her remarkable beauty, but she was also smart. Known for taking milk baths, she knew that milk baths enhanced her beauty by moisturizing and exfoliating her skin. Milk softened her skin and gave it a healthy glow. We can all take a lesson from this famous Egyptian beauty.
Milk is rich in B-Vitamins, alpha hydroxy acids, calcium, and other potent antioxidants. It will nourish skin cells from deep within and keep skin moisturized all day. .
Milk is a natural exfoliant. It contains alpha hydroxy acid, which loosens the bonds that hold old, dead cells to the surface of the skin. When these dead cells fall away, the new skin cells beneath are exposed. Skin feels softer and looks brighter. A milk bath exfoliates without scrubbing, so you don't risk irritating your skin.
Milk also contains fats and proteins that can help boost your skin's moisture content. It keeps skin hydrated and prevents drying.
Milk baths can also reduce some of the darkening that naturally occurs as your skin ages. The lactic acid in milk works to gradually diminsh skin pigmentation, resulting in a brighter complexion.
