Raw milk possesses amazing skincare benefits that will transform your skin and make it appear clear and brighter. How, you ask? Scroll down as we take you through some of the awesome benefits of raw milk for your skin…

Works as an effective skin toner
Raw milk is brimming with lactic acid which is really important for anyone with uneven texture and skin tone. The moisturising properties of raw milk intensely hydrate your skin, improve elasticity and keep it soft and supple. When used as a toner, it helps to tighten skin and keep it looking youthful.
Works as a natural moisturiser
There’s a reason why skincare products like moisturisers and body lotions almost always contain milk. Raw milk has the power to sink to the deeper layers of your skin and deliver intense nourishment. If applying raw milk to your face seems gross, you can add a little bit of it to your DIY face masks.
Did you know that raw milk also doubles up as an amazing natural cleanser, especially for girls with oily and acne-prone skin? When you wash your face with milk, it helps to degunk pores, prevent acne and leave your skin squeaky clean. All you need to do is apply raw milk using a cotton pad all over your face and neck and clean it with a washcloth in gentle circular motions.
Another great benefit of raw milk is that it helps to get rid of tan, pigmentation and dark spots. Thanks to the high lactic acid content, applying raw milk to your skin helps to even out skin tone, brighten your complexion and gives your skin a hard-to-miss glow.
Works as an excellent exfoliator
Raw milk contains Beta hydroxyl, which is a type of AHA. This is one compound that is commonly found in chemical exfoliants and helps to gently yet effectively slough away dead skin cells to keep your skin looking glowing and radiant.
