A beauty trend that has been the rage for many years among women is the milk bath. Especially if you have a sunburned or dry skin, you need the soothing benefits of a warm milk bath. Milk has lactic acid that’s effective as an exfoliant by removing dead skin and revealing the new smooth one.
This acid is a humectant that attracts sufficient moisture to the skin’s surface, keeping it hydrated as you regularly use milk bath. To keep your skin smooth and young looking, add oatmeal to your milk bath. Enjoy your milk bath in these easy steps:
Prepare ingredients like three cups of powdered milk, 1/3 cup cornstarch, and ¼ cup oatmeal. Mix the ingredients together. Optional ingredient includes almond or oris oatmeal, which are great in achieving sweet scent.
Keep the mixture in a clean, dry, and airtight container. If you want a milk bath, just scoop ½ cup of the mixture and place in a washcloth or muslin. Tie the cloth with the mixture inside. Hand the bag under the open faucet, and make sure that the water runs through it. As this happens, the mixture is added and diffused throughout the bath.
As soon as the water in the bath has reached your desired level, turn the faucet off. You may add Vitamin E from capsules that are available over the counter. Vitamin E in the bath ensures essential nourishment for the skin.
You may now step into the bath. If the washcloth is still hanging under the faucet, swish it onto the water to add the remaining bath mixture. Stay submerged in your milk bath for at least 30 minutes or even longer.
As soon as you are done, dry yourself with a clean towel and apply organic moisturize all over the body. Since the lactic acid in your batch acts as an effective humectant, it will further help in the absorption of moisture into your skin for sufficient hydration.
Last step is to make sure that you wash your muslin or washcloth thoroughly and dry for your next milk bath. Don’t let any milk residue to remain on cloth; otherwise, it will develop a foul odor.
These are simple steps to making sure that you enjoy a beauty trend in milk bath. It will not only keep your skin looking young and nourished, but will also make you totally refreshed and revitalized.
