DIY Milk Mask – Who is the Fairest of us All?
Want to be fair like Snow White? Here’s my little secret!
How many whitening products have you used over the years and I bet that would have cost you a lot of money. I have been into natural skincare remedies for a couple of years now, and I recommend that to anyone because it is inexpensive and effective!
In Asia, girls like to look fair. However, as we age, it is not our skin tone that bothers us that much anymore. We start to develop other skin problems with prolonged exposure to sun – uneven skin tone, redness, sun spots, pigmentation etc.
Here is one of my favorite natural remedy. Its fast, easy and inexpensive, and it couldn’t get any simpler than this!
Milk mask helps to achieve a milky white skin tone, moisturizing it to attain baby-soft and supple skin. It helps to reduce irregularity of skin tone, keeps your complexion blemish-free with regular application, and because skin is moisturized, it helps reduce any fine lines and wrinkles that might be starting to form! Did I mention too that is it has wonderful remover and cleansing properties as well?
Imagine feeding your skin like how you will feed your body. The milk offers your skin essential nutrients, like:
- Proteins – essential for building healthy skin cells;
- Lactic acid – a natural alpha hydroxyl acid, or AHA, which helps to remove the dead skin cells that block the pores and hamper the skin’s natural renewal process
- Vitamins and minerals – help to keep the skin healthy and protected from infections and premature aging.
What you need :
- A clean bowl (I use a special bowl just for my facial mixes)
- Cotton pads
- Mixing spoon / spatula
- Clean facial masks sheet (optional)
- Fresh Milk
Wash your face clean and pat dry. Soak cotton pads into fresh milk until it is dripping wet. Apply all over your face once in circular motion. You may even find some residue of your makeup that did not get washed off clean before. Repeat until you have covered your skin in a layer of milk. You may choose to soak clean facial mask sheets into milk and apply it as a wet mask onto your face. Either way works well.
Remove the mask by washing your face with lukewarm water. Make sure to wash it clean before you go to bed. I like to use a facial wash sponge for this. Apply your bedtime skincare before you sleep. I prefer to go less on my products after my milk mask so my skin gets all the natural nutrients for the night!
