For centuries, people have used milk from cows and goats as a natural moisturizer for skin. The lactic acid in milk helps cleanse your face, removing dead skin cells and acting as a gentle exfoliant. Milk also contains nourishing proteins, amino acids and antioxidants that help keep your skin healthy. Soaking your face in milk might help beautify your skin, but it's not the most practical way to go about reaping the benefits. Instead, combine the milk with a couple other skin-friendly ingredients for a nourishing mask. Your skin will thank you with a healthy glow.
Measure 2 tbsp. of milk into a small bowl.
Add 2 tbsp. of honey and stir until blended.
Add a dash of cinnamon. Stir, and add a bit more if you want a stronger scent.
Lie down and use your fingertips to apply the mask to your face, avoiding the sensitive area around your eyes.
Leave the mask on for at least 10 minutes.
Rinse the mask off with warm water and a washcloth. Pat your face dry with a towel.
