The importance of milk in the field of beauty extends much beyond 'cleansing milks.' Milk, in its purest and most natural form, is said to be a game-changer for your skin. Not only because it's high in nutrients like vitamin A, D, E, K, and lactic acid. Before you run to the kitchen, let us tell you how this household staple can come handy in aiding skin concerns that you could be facing.
1. Smoothens Hair

Milk has hair-smoothing ingredients including casein and protein, which give your hair a glossy, straight look. This is why, in order to achieve straight and manageable locks, you must use milk. To do this properly, pour some milk into a spray bottle (and add honey or strawberry extracts for extra shine) and spritz it all over your ends. Make sure your hair is completely combed out with no knots, and then wash it off with your regular shampoo and conditioner after 30 minutes. And there you have it: straight hair.
2. Milk Bath
Bathing in milk has been a long-standing tradition, and the benefits include smoother, softer, more nourished, and radiant skin. Milk, which is high in skin-loving nutrients, can help with a variety of skin issues such as skin tanning, dryness, and more. The milk's strong balance of fat and protein gives the skin an immediate and long-lasting softness.

3. Heals Sunburns
We all know that milk may help soothe your stomach when you have heartburn, but did you know that milk can also help repair sunburns on your skin? Milk's exfoliating, anti-inflammatory, and cooling characteristics work together to make it an effective sunburn reliever. Lactic acid in milk exfoliates dead skin while relaxing and nourishing the region, reducing redness and inflammation.
4. Face Cleanser
Milk is a great cleanser because it removes dead skin, pollutants, and clogs pores while keeping the skin moisturised. As a result, it's a good face cleanser. It’s best to use raw milk for this purpose and there are two ways to do this, i) Soak a cotton pad in raw milk and gently rub all over the face or ii) mix some raw milk with saffron strands and rub it on the face in circular motions for extra brightening.
5. Aids Skin Issues
Milk is a good cure for dry, rough, and peeling skin due to its high lactic acid and fatty acid content. Applying thick full cream milk as a moisturiser all over your body might provide immediate relief from any redness or discomfort caused by dryness.
