Natural Beauty Tip for winter to Restore the Natural Ph to your face

   The Milk Mask,  simple and natural beauty.

The natural ph balance of our skin is 5.5, which means it is slightly acidic.   "Ph" is referring to the balance of that acid and alkali on our skin.  Foods and things we put on our skin disrupts our natural ph balance, especially soaps.  Which is one good reason to use homemade soap and stay away from the drying agents of commercial soaps which remove the natural glycerin.

Want to put your winter skin back in balance?  Try a lovely homemade cultured milk mask.  Very simple to do:


Simply apply to your face SOUR CREAM, or BUTTERMILK, or my favorite Yogurt. If you are into
making that awesome power drink KEFIR, you can also use that. The cultured milk in these natural products will soften, and liven up your skin as it restores the natural Ph balance.

Apply a small amount of your choice of cultured milk and leave on for 10 minutes.  Then rinse well with warm water, finishing with a splash of cool water. Pat dry.   Lovely!

Enjoy natures goodness this winter!

Hi Anna,
yes milk is beautiful. My skin is also just a little dry. I'll try your tip times. Sun does not need to spend money on expensive cosmetics.

Linda, welcome to my blog, thanks for following. It's always a great compliment to have someone take time out of a busy day and visit here!

I really like how my face feels after the milk facial. Sour cream and yogurt work best for me, so creamy and easy to apply.

You will be absolutely amazed at how your legs feel after a sugar or coffee scrub! You'll want to do them every week!
