Cleopatra’s Cleansing Secret Formula

We can’t go around with dirty skin, but many cleansers can cause dryness and premature aging. Instead, try this simple formula, used by the famous beauty Cleopatra to keep her skin not only clean but soft, youthful, and dewy. Milk products contain alpha-hydroxy acids that gently cleanse and soften skin.

This formula couldn’t be simpler. Here are the easy directions:

Ingredient: 1/4 cup milk, buttermilk, yogurt or sour cream

1. Use your fingertips to “wash” your face with your milk product of choice.

2. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

3. You can also add milk to your bath for an all-over skin softening experience. And when you’re traveling, take along a packet of powdered milk to use!
