Skin Care Tip: Sour milk bath

submitted by Tracy

Tip description / details:
Cleopatra used to bathe in sour milk to help exfoliate and smooth her skin! Get a similar result from pouring a cup of milk into your bath, along with a drizzle of olive oil, then relax! Great to get your skin in tip top condition! Milk just past it's sell by date will be better, as it has a greater concentration of lactic acid - this is the chemical which helps to rejuvenate your skin, and works in the same way as AHA's in skin creams work.

Milk, slightly out of date is best, but not too sour as it's too smelly.

How to prepare:
Pour into a warm bath

How to use:
Pour into a warm bath and relax for at least 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water afterwards, and make sure you moisturize!

Results (observed by submitter):
Lovely soft, smooth skin, skin feels softer after the first use, but used regularly it makes a real difference to the feel and look of your skin.

Costs involved:
