Milk baths, anyone?
 
 

"Over two thousand years ago, Cleopatra filled her elegant tub with camel milk to maintain her notoriously supple skin. However, the multiple benefits of milk baths and milk-based skin care products are being revisited in the new millennium as more people seek holistic solutions to their health and beauty needs.

Milk naturally contains Vitamins A and D, which helps to make your skin soft, yet strong. Further, the lactic acid in milk has natural beta hydroxy acids which not only exfoliate your skin, but soothe it. The natural ingredients found in milk improve the appearance and condition of your skin. As milk eliminates dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, it adds essential moisture. Milk is even beneficial for your hair because it seals up the small scales on your hair follicles that can cause hair to look dull. Using milk on your hair will make it shinier and healthier, just as using milk on your skin will made it silkier and more radiant.

No matter what type of milk you use, it is sure to benefit your skin. Although Cleopatra used camel's milk and many people today use cow's milk, other kinds of milk are also excellent for skin care. Goat's milk has the same ph as human skin and is quite effective for attaining smoother skin. Oat milk contains oat grain, which is super for sensitive skin because it soothes as it moisturizes. Soy and rice milk are also terrific for hydrating the skin and promoting healthy new cells. Regardless of where the milk was derived, it is certain to deliver multiple benefits to your skin.

You can make your own milk bath at home by adding a couple of cups of warm milk to your bath, or in a pinch, you can substitute with a couple of cups of instant milk. You can also add a drop or two of almond oil to the bath because it smells delicious and will provide a bit of additional moisture."

it contains:

honey/almonds- good for oily skin,  helps the exfoliating process
sugar (grains good while exfoliating)- exfoliates
water- dilutes the  mixture
lemons- lightens whilst exfoliating occurs
olive oil- leaves one with smoother , gentle  skin
 
 
each doing it's own thing  but to be quite honest, it really leaves my skin  smooth and  lighter looking even, thanks to the removal of the dead skin. Although after putting it on, it dries and makes the skin feel like sandpaper, once you get the loofah and in a circular motion  start to exfoliate it, the  dry skin is removed, and you can feel the softer smoother skin. once your whole skin is left feeling smooth, it's simple to say, outer dermis layer is removed . :) works uber well for me...

I have a similar body scrub recipe that I really love and it leaves my skin sooo soft. I mix it in a plastic tub with a lid and keep it in the shower. I use fresh ingredients so I only make enough for a week.
 
Ingredients:
 
1. regular cane sugar
2. lemon juice - fresh squeezed 3 or 4 lemons
3. pure, raw honey 
4. oil (whatever kind I have on hand....olive oil + coconut oil and/or a little liquid shea butter oil that I ordered)
 
I mix until I like the consistency. I use this in the shower (NOT ON FACE) and it really leaves my skin silky. The oils in it leaves me moisturized.



mmmmm i like those recipes. i already get rid of my dead skin with the korean italy towel, but it is always good to try something else.
