5 Quick, Easy & Cheap Milk Based Beauty Packs

Beauty hacks which are easy, quick, simple and effective are ideal for people who are on the move or simply too busy otherwise. As always, help comes straight from the kitchen and in this piece we shall talk about Milk. Milk can be combined with almost every ingredient known for its beauty benefits [like besan (gram flour), turmeric, tomatoes etc] to create the instant magic you are looking for.

Here are some skin smacking milk recipes. 

1. Milk, Honey & Turmeric for Treating Skin Blemishes & Radiance

Very strong blemishes sure require medical treatment but if there's something you can safely do at home (unless not permitted) is mix a teaspoon of milk with an equal amount of honey with a pinch of turmeric. Make a paste and apply on the face. Let it remain on the face for 15-20 minutes. Wash as usual followed by application of toner.

2. Milk/ Malai for dry skin

Skin feels dry and bottled moisturizers not helpful enough?
Just grab some malai (cream) / full cream or simply 2 tablespoons on milk and apply on the face. Use in colder form preferably and wash off after 10 mins. Skin will feel visibly softer, calmer, more hydrated and fed.

3. Plain Yogurt for  Skin Cooling

If the heat is killing you and you need an immediate soother, just pull out some plain yoghurt / dahi from the fridge and apply as it is on your face. You will notice skin calming down in seconds. Wash off after 15 mins and spray some rose water or a fruit based toner on the face for more hydration.

4. Exfoliate with orange peel, milk powder & water

If you wish a gentler scrub on your skin, mix some dry orange peel powder with milk powder and some milk. Make a slightly coarse mix and gentle massage on your face to get rid of the dead skin cells.

You can also use some oatmeal instead of orange peels.

5. Rose Petals and Milk for Improving & Soothing Complexion

If you do not have any allergy issues, grind or mash some rose petals. Mix them with milk / milk powder & water. Make a paste and apply on the face. Wash off after 15 mins and follow it up with a toner. For more such easy beauty remedies with rose petals, see our earlier blog
