Ageless With Milk / Stay Forever Young with Milk / Preserve Your Youth with Milk / 4 DIY Anti-ageing
Milk Recipes to Try This Weekend!
Did you know that one of the most common ingredients in DIY beauty recipes is milk? It’s probably
because it is super-efficient at keeping you pretty. And it can also be your most trusted accomplice for
hanging on to that youthful glow. Milk is packed with two of the most useful anti-ageing ingredients –
protein and calcium – so it’s really common sense to use it for younger looking skin. It’s even regarded
as an anti-ageing drink to make up for age-related bone and muscle loss. And muscle loss shows on the
face as sagging and drooping skin. We’re sure you don’t want that. So in addition to guzzling a nice and
tall glass of milk every day, try to incorporate these DIY milk beauty recipes that help you show off
flawless and firm skin, no matter what the date on your birth certificate.
1. Milk Cream and Eggs for Taut, Tighter Skin
The drooping structure of collagen cells in our skin is what makes it look like it’s sagging. The face lift was invented by dermatologists to counter this procedure – but you don’t need to resort to that. Add a teaspoon of milk cream to half a whisked egg (don’t throw away the yellow yolk). If the smell of the egg is too much for you, add a teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply this for 15 minutes once or twice a week to see a visible change. Egg also adds to the protein content of the mask and also has omega fatty acids and zinc, known to tighten the skin. You can also try the
Sacred Salts Milk Protein Peel Off Mask to achieve similar results without the mess. Enriched with aloe vera extracts, it tightens and de-tans the skin while clearing pores and removing blackheads.
2. Milk and Almonds for Hydrated and Nourished Skin
Soak 8-10 almonds overnight in one-fourth cup of milk and grind it to a paste in the morning.
Apply this pack to a cleansed and scrubbed face so that your skin can really absorb the natural
goodness. We love
that thoroughly cleanses the
skin without stripping it of its natural moisture content. Wash off after 15-20 minutes to look
five years younger. Milk has exceptional hydrating properties and helps the skin stay supple.
Dryness is a very noticeable sign of ageing and milk counters that. Almonds are a powerhouse of
vitamin E, which helps keep wrinkles at bay.
3. Milk, Turmeric and Gram Flour for Smooth, Polished Skin
Blend two tablespoons of milk with one tablespoon of gram flour and one-fourth teaspoon of
milk to make a smooth paste. Apply it to wet skin on your face and neck (no need to wash
beforehand) and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. Gram
flour is a natural cleanser while milk firms up the skin and fends off those nasty wrinkles.
4. Milk and Rose Soak for Youthfully Soft Hands and Feet
All your serums and anti-ageing creams may work wonders on your face but dry, cracked and
wrinkled hands and feet can reveal your real age. Fix the issue by indulging in a foot and hand
soak concocted with two cups of warm milk, sufficient warm water to soak, a few drops of rose
essential oil or a handful of rose petals (or both). Soak in your hands and feet in this divine
mixture for 10-20 minutes once or twice a week. The milk gets rid of dead cells and hydrates the
skin while rose helps in moisturisation. Finally, slather on a luxe hand and foot cream like the
before you slip into bed. Sweet dreams!
