Milk Powder And Honey - The Perfect Combination For A Flawless Skin!
Milk powder, when used in the form of a face mask, re-hydrates the skin, acts as a powerful moisturiser and a skin softener.
The lactic acid content present in both whole milk and milk powder acts as an effective dead skin cleanser.
The calcium content, along with the other nutrients in milk powder, strengthens the skin cells while rejuvenating them.
Honey is a powerful antioxidant. Honey can make your skin supple as well as glow. Making a paste of honey and milk powder will empower you to get the best of both worlds.
- Mix equal amounts of honey and milk powder to create a paste. Apply this paste all over your face, leave it to dry for 15 minutes, rinse with cold water and wipe your face with a soft towel.
- Alternately, apply a coating of full cream milk on your face, allow the rich creamy coating to dry for 15 minutes, rinse and wipe to get a glowing skin. Keeping a slice of cucumber on both your eyes, while the milk dries, is an excellent way to get rid of the dark circles as well!
- If you have an oily skin, finely grind 1 cucumber, mix it with 2 tablespoons of milk and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Apply it evenly over your face and neck. Leave it on for 15 minutes to dry, rinse with cold water and wipe gently to see the difference.
You can see the difference of using these milk-based face packs in just 1 use. If you want to maintain the effects of the initial face pack, then continue the same treatment, once a week.
