    Who needs those expensive spa products when you've got milk in the house? Milk baths have been around for centuries—millenia, even—and for good reason: It hydrates and replenishes the skin, leaving it glowing and radiant. So skip that bowl of cereal and let's get beautifying!

      Take a milk bath. Close the bathtub's drain, run the hot water, and add in 1–3 gallons (3.8–11.4 L) of milk. When in doubt, more is always better. Make sure to leave enough room so that when you get in, the bath doesn't spill over! Please or Register to view links
      • Rest in the milk for 15-20 minutes. If you do this every day for a week, your skin will be brighter and more radiant. If Cleopatra did it, it's gotta be good, right?
      • Always wash off after! You want naturally glowing skin, not skin that's glowing with a milky residue.

      Create a purifying mask. You can mix a couple of tablespoons of milk with a tablespoon or two of honey, lemon juice, baking soda, or all three. Break open a vitamin E tablet for additional purifying power. Your skin needs them as much as your body does!
      • Apply it to your face (or whatever area you choose) and let it stiffen -- this should take about 10 to 15 minutes. Then rinse off with warm water. Your skin should feel smoothed and refreshed.

      Make an exfoliating scrub. To get rid of that top layer of skin and expose a brand new you, use milk to exfoliate. Take 1 cup of milk and 3 tablespoons of oatmeal and apply it to your skin, gently rubbing it in. The oats provide the grittiness while the milk provides the nourishment.
      • Allow it time to dry. Then rinse it off with warm water, scrubbing gently. If you'd like to make this in advance, make it with powdered milk and store in your refrigerator.
      • Or you can soak 1/2 cup of almonds in milk overnight. Then in the morning, grind 'er up into a paste and apply to your skin, following the same drying and washing routine.

      Use a cotton ball on dark pâtches. Just as lemon juice is said to lighten skin, the lactic acid in milk is said to work in a similar manner.

Allow it to dry overnight and then wash it off in the morning.

      Use it as a toner. If you're not crazy on the idea of soaking your face in a layer of milk overnight, just use it as a toner. Apply milk to your face with a saturated cotton ball, leave it on for at least 15 minutes, and rinse well. With repeated use, it can bring out your skin's natural glow.
      • Some say that milk lightens the skin. While it may or may not, keep this in mind if you choose to use milk to tone your skin. Overuse may have results you weren't looking for.

      Use it to shrink your pores. It isn't just milk that can do your skin good -- it's all those dairy products, too. If you're looking to shrink your pores, get sour -- with sour cream or buttermilk. All you need do is apply a thin layer to your skin and let it soak in for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and rinse it well -- you don't want to be smelling like a sourpuss in the morning!
