Did you know Cleopatra used to bathe in milk for its skin benefits? The question is, is can you use milk skin lightening? Many bloggers swear by its lightening properties. The reason is the lactic acid in milk works to reduce skin pigmentation. The great news is you can use any cow’s or goat’s milk for lightening. This can be achieved by applying the milk to the areas you want to affect. Here are some steps to achieving lighter skin with milk:
- Make sure your skin is clean and dry.
- Warm the milk in a bowl using a microwave.
- Soak a washcloth in the milk. Squeeze out the cloth so that it is saturated but not dripping.
- Massage the milk into the area you want to be lightened. When the washcloth runs out of milk, replenish its supply by dipping it into the bowl.
If you apply the milk daily, lightening should take approximately three weeks. Once you have achieved the lightening you desire, you should still apply milk to your skin at least twice per week. Doing this will help you maintain your new found lightened skin.
Milk has other benefits for your skin. It is packed with vitamin B, calcium and other powerful antioxidants. This means it will keep your skin moisturized while helping to treat free radical damage.
