“Doctor, is milk good for skin and hair?”
Many ask me this question redundantly and to this, my answer is yes! Milk can do wonders for your face; it hydrates dry skin, exfoliates mature skin, soothes irritated skin and lightens dark skin. Both my research and experience speak volume about the extraordinary benefits of milk for skin.
Here is a list of the most effective benefits of milk for skin and hair.
Milk Benefits for Skin
1. Natural cleanser:
Raw milk is an amazing natural skin cleanser, as it removes all the dirt and dead-cells from your skin; blackheads or whiteheads becomes softer and can be easily removed by steaming. Just apply some raw milk on your skin and rub gently. Wash it off with lukewarm water.
2. Natural Moisturizer:
Raw milk works as an amazing natural moisturizer which can help you get rid of lifeless dull and dry skin in winter season. Make a smooth paste with mashed banana and some cold milk, apply this paste all over the face, leave it on for about 20 minutes then rinse it off with warm water. Apply this mask regularly for better results.
3. Natural Toner:
Milk is a wonder ingredient if you are looking to use a natural and chemical-free toner. All you need to do is mix few drops of raw milk and green tea together in a bowl. Dab a cotton ball in it and apply it all over your face. Leave it on for a few minutes, and wash it off. You can clearly see an instant glow and radiance in your skin if you do this regularly.
Milk can make your skin feel silky and rejuvenated if your skin is dull and lifeless. It cleanses the pores and moisturizes the dry skin.
Milk Benefits for Hair
1. For dry hair:
Applying milk on your scalp and washing it off after few minutes makes your hair super soft and silky. Avoid this method if you have dandruff.
2. Use as a conditioner:
Use milk for conditioning for your hair Instead of using a shampoo conditioner. Just fill a spray bottle with some cold milk and spray it on your hair by combing hair gently. Wash off milk from hair after 10-15 minutes.
3. Hair repairing properties:
Milk is extremely beneficial for hair repairing; it nourishes, strengthens and softens hair. Especially goat milk provides much healthier and shinier looking. So rinsing the hair with fresh goat milk will help you the most.
