The idea of taking a long, hot soak in a milk bath may seem like a strange concept to the uninitiated, but people have been enjoying the benefits of milk baths for centuries.
History tells us that the ancient Romans regularly used milk baths. According to legend, Cleopatra obtained her famous complexion by bathing in milk and honey.
Milk baths are making a comeback today, with many celebrities sharing how milk baths are part of their beauty regimen.
Milk is not just for drinking. The vitamins and minerals contained in milk can be just as beneficial to the outside of your body as they are to the inside. Applying milk to your skin adds nourishing moisture
A milk bath leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. The fat and protein in the milk provide this immediate benefit in your bathwater. The milk also helps exfoliate the skin for additional softness. The lactic acid in milk helps clean and soften the skin. The milk hydrates the skin, preventing dryness.
Soothes Skin Irritations
Many adults and children experience uncomfortable skin irritations such as eczema. A milk bath may help soothe some of the irritation of eczema and other skin conditions.
The soothing feeling of the milk in the water creates an overall relaxed, comfortable feeling. Taking a milk bath at the end of the day can help you improve your skin while helping reduce the stress of your day. Adding essential oils to the milk bath provides additional relaxation qualities. Create an overall relaxing environment by dimming the lights, using candles and playing relaxing music in the background. The time alone may refresh your outlook.
Improve Skin’s Appearance
In addition to the immediate softness of the skin, milk baths may provide deeper improvements to the skin’s appearance. The lactic acid in milk may help remove dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and may also encourage skin cell renewal. Milk baths may reduce some of the darkening that naturally occurs as your skin ages.
