Amazing beauty uses of fresh milk

Certain ingredients found in fresh whole milk could soften, tone, and exfoliate your skin, giving you a soft, silky and clear complexion.

According to Natural-beauty expert Paige Padgett,whole milk can be used as your daily cleanser. "It's gentle, yet effective in removing excess oil and makeup," she says.

Milk contains lactic acid, a form of alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA), which helps to reduce wrinkles and boost collagen while smoothing the skin. Simply soak a cotton pad in milk, and gently clean your face and down your neck to exfoliate dead cells. "It's a gentle exfoliation," says Padgett. "Not like a fruit acid or enzyme, which can be harsher."

Skin Softening:
 Add a couple of cups of milk to warm water for a lavish soak. "A milk bath feels decadent and makes skin soft and smooth," says Padgett.

Toning Mask:
 Padgett recommends using yogurt as a mask to even skin tone, gently exfoliate, and soften skin. Apply a thin layer over your skin, and let sit for five to 10 minutes before rinsing.

Spot Treatment:
The lactic acid in milk brightens, rehydrates and exfoliates and also treats breakouts, according to Padgett. Mix milk with flour to create a thin paste, apply it before bedtime, leave it on overnight, and rinse in the morning.
