Milk Baths For Soft & Silky Skin

              Cleopatra used to take Milk Baths everyday so why not you too start doing it once in awhile. Milk baths are an ideal way to nourish and soften your skin especially during the winters. Milk baths can be a costly proposition but I have come up with a couple of milk based baths that won't pinch your purse.
 
* Add 1/2 cup whole milk to your bath water. Swirl it to mix well and use the water for your bath.

* Take a small muslin bag and fill it with- 3 tbspn each of milk powder, powdered oats and laundry starch. Dip the bag into a bucket of water and leave it immersed for 5 mins or until water turns milky. Bathe with this water.

* Take 3 tbspn of milk powder, 1 tbspn of almond oil and 1 tbspn of powdered oats. Add 2 cups of hot water to the powders and strain the liquid. Now add the oil and pour into your tub or bucket.

             After bathing always dry your entire body with a large fluffy towel. Thereafter use you favorite moisturiser on your body while still damp. Wait for a couple of mins before putting on your clothes.

well....that's a food for thought bhumika....even I feel the same sometimes and sometimes I do indulge myself...guilty or not??
anywayz I wanted to add that instead of laundry starch, one can use arrowroot powder...its a thickening agent and helps soften the skin....

Thanks for the great tip PSC. Also cornflour/cornstarch is an option. But I do it this way. Thanks again :)
