How can Milk help my skin?

Milk is fantastic for our skin! The most famous fan of Milk skincare was none other than the Queen of Egypt herself, Cleopatra. She attributed her smooth skin and renowned beauty to a secret ingredient, which was milk.


Milk is an effective cleanser, as it removes oil soluble impurities. It balances the skin by removing unwanted oils, especially effective for those who suffer with oily skin, and yet provides moisturising fats in dry skin and both in combination skin types.


Containing water, fat and proteins; Milk is a wholesome moisturiser. The lactic acid found in milk effectively hydrates the skin by increasing its water retention capacity, as does the amino acids, which allows for deeper penetration into the skin.


The lactic acid found in Milk is also known as an alpha hydroxy acid. This will gently slough away dead skin cells, which in-turn, promotes cell renewal. These exfoliating properties are also highly effective for reducing wrinkles, pigmentation and discoloration, restoring an even-toned look.


Owing to the exfoliative properties found in Milk, the pigmented dead skin cells which are shed from the skin; leave a brightened and lightened complexion.
