Milk: Creamy Care for Your Skin Care Routine

A renowned beauty icon, Cleopatra regularly indulged in milk treatments for her skin; the royal bather filling her tub with camel's milk. Today, milk turns up in a variety of skincare products, including masks, creams and cleansers. Skin benefits. An excellent exfoliant, milk contains natural alpha hydroxy acids, which help to gently slough off dead skin cells. "It's a natural way to eliminate old skin," Ann Robinson - CEO of Caswell-Massey, the nation's oldest apothecary - tells iVillage.

In addition, milk helps to reduce redness and soothe irritated skin. In fact, milk contains proteins (whey and casein), fat, amino acids, lactic acid and vitamins A and D, all of which prove to calm dry, upset skin. Milk conditions skin so it is soft and glowing, not flaky.

When choosing milk-based products, look for one or some of these ingredients to appear on the label: "whey," "milk proteins," "lactic acid."
