It has been said that Cleopatra was the ultimate beauty girl. In Ancient Egypt, cosmetics and beauty products were considered medicine and they were highly used. The Egyptians lined their eyes with kohl to ward off eye infections, not just because it was pretty!
Cleo enjoyed taking milk baths. Milk can do wonders for your skin because it contains Lactic Acid. Lactic Acid works by removing dead skin cells, leaving your skin smooth and hydrated. This is the same chemical that can be found in Amlactin, a lotion made for extra dry skin and that helps sooth Keratosis Pilaris (KP).

So next time add some milk to your bath water. You can pour in as much as you’d like and once you’re done soaking, rinse off in the shower. I would suggest taking advantage of left over milk that has just passed the sell by date. Chances are it is still pretty good.
Quick Tip: Most of us will not drink milk that has passed the used by date, even by one day (me). An easy way to check for freshness is to pour some of the milk in a spoon and put the spoon over your oven burner. If the milk boils it is still fresh, if it curdles (like cottage cheese) it is sour. You can also put some in a small bowl and microwave it.
