Milk

We all know that milk is good for our health and bone formation. But it has been used as a beauty aid for centuries. Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra attributed her smooth skin and beauty to a secret ingredient and that is milk. Thus, milk plays an important role in maintaining the beauty of your skin and keeping skin problems at bay.

Milk is great for improving complexion. All you need to do is apply raw milk all over your face and neck; and leave it for 10 minutes. Rinse off with fresh water. This will make your skin fairer and softer within minutes. You can also prepare a face pack by mixing 2 tablespoons of milk, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Apply this on clean skin and allow it to dry for ten minutes. This face pack acts as a mild bleach for your skin.

Sour cream or sour milk can help in shrinking pores. If you have large and open pores, you can take some sour cream and apply it on your face and neck. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash clean. Dairy products are quite effective in counteracting large pores.

The combination of milk and honey works wonders on your skin. Mix 2 tablespoons of powdered milk with 1 tablespoon honey and 2 tablespoons of warm water. Apply this all over your face and neck; and allow it to dry and become stiff. Rinse off with warm water after a while. Apart from this, daily consumption of milk can beautify your skin naturally. It is loaded with vitamins, minerals and proteins which can make your skin fairer and radiant internally.
