There’s nothing more relaxing and indulgent than a long soak in the tub, but have you ever considered bathing in something other than hot water and perhaps a product like AHAVA – Deadsea Mineral Bath Salt Sweet Cinnamon Silk? How about a dip in milk? Believe it or not, this fabulous liquid has plenty of skin benefits, from smoothing to moisturizing to softening. But how can you pull off a DIY milk bath at home without lugging gallons upon gallons of milk to your tub?
According to Glamour magazine’s beauty blog, the answer is powdered milk. All you have to do is mix it in with your water and a few other ingredients if you want to get a soothing soak that will leave your body glowing.
The Natural Beauty Workshop recommends mixing and matching basic ingredients like 2 cups of milk powder, 1 cup of grain powder, ½ cup of honey, clay, salt or cornstarch, 2 tablespoons of herbs or aloe vera, 2 teaspoons of essential oils and ¼ cup of baking soda. Combine them all or just choose ingredients that address your skin’s particular needs.
Some options include goat’s milk, coconut milk, oat flour, rice powder, honey, tea, chamomile, rose oil or lavender oil. Go online and do a bit of research to find the best options for your skin, then get mixing!
If you’re short on time, a body wash like Whish – Coconut Milk Exfoliating Body Wash can give you similar results!
