Hello Mwana Amai and Mwana Wa Daddy

Did you know that Dairy Milk contains Lactic acid which is a popular ingredient used in most skin care products to combat signs of aging and hyper-pigmentation. It is also packed with Vitamin A and D.

Milk is used in many beauty cleansers and exfoliators because of its impressive cleansing qualities. Why is this so? The lactic acid in milk an alphahydroxy acids (AHA) ingredient that many modern skin care products include Lactic acid is especially popular in body cleansers. 

Below are many uses of milk; 

Exfoliating Bath

The lactic acid will help dissolve inactive dead cells, thereby exfoliating the skin. The protein and fat will lubricate and soften rough skin, solving dryness.

Add about 5 cups of raw milk, 1/2 cup of honey and 5 drops of your favourite essential oils to a tub containing warm water for baby soft skin. 


Milk is a powerhouse of vitamins for good skin including vitamin A, which solves dry skin. But what about acne? Raw milk also works wonders for acne-prone skin.

It not only cleanses the skin of excess oils and dirt which clog pores to form acne but also contains lactic acid, which fights off microbes that are responsible for it.

Dab it onto your clean face, especially on your acne-infected areas to gradually terminate pimples without leaving acne scar. 

Face Scrub

Use a raw milk and oatmeal face scrub to gently scour off impurities like excess dead cells, sebum, dirt and pollution from deep within your skin pores.

1.​Combine 1 tablespoon of ground oatmeal and 1 tablespoon of raw milk well.

2.​Apply to your clean face using your fingertips and scrub gently in a circular motion.

3.​Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes.

4.​Rinse off with cool water and pat dry.

As wonderful as milk seems, many individuals are very sensitive to it and thus you must apply it with caution.

Love & likes Mwana amai. 

God bless
