Milk baths go back centuries and have been used by women to nourish and improve your skin! The lactic acid in milk is an alpha hydroxy acid, which helps cleanse the skin and release dead skin cells. (*Please note: When choosing the dried milk, go with the high fat version. The higher the fat content of the milk, the more nourishing it is for your skin. Low fat milk just isn’t the best choice here.)
Add corn starch and baking soda to power up the skin-softening effect and give the bathwater a silky feel. These ingredients are also great for soothing itchy skin.
Lime is a lovely addition that is known for its beneficial effects on the skin. It is rich in powerful antioxidants like Vitamin C, citric acid and flavonoids. It can improve the appearance of dark spots, acne and blemishes. it also has anti-aging properties and leaves skin with a glowing complexion.
