What is milk powder and how can we get a glowing skin?

Milk powder or powdered milk is a dairy product made from milk by the process of evaporating its water content. The purpose of this process is to increase the longevity of milk and save on refrigeration costs. This can be achieved because of the lack of moisture in the milk powder. Powdered milk also saves on transportation costs due to its reduced bulk. Like milk, powdered milk can also be bought as whole milk powder, fat free powder or buttermilk powder forms. Milk powder too has to conform to certain standards as laid out in the Codex Alimentarius.

Milk powder can be used as a topical application to get a glowing, healthy skin in the same way as whole milk can. Many people also apply milk powder in the mistaken belief that it will make them fairer. Milk powder cannot make your skin fairer than its natural color. What it can do, is lighten your skin if it has been darkened due to external factors such as exposure to sunlight. You will need to apply milk powder regularly to your skin for a long period of time before you notice any change in your skin tone.

The main benefit of applying milk powder to your skin is to keep it well hydrated and healthy. The natural fats contained in whole milk powder can help to moisturize your skin and provide it with nutrients to keep it healthy. The best results can be achieved if you incorporate milk powder into your daily skin care routine.

One way to apply milk powder is to make a mixture of milk powder, lime juice, honey and almond oil. Use half a tbsp. of almond oil with I tbsp. of the other ingredients. Mix them into a paste and apply it to your face to make an excellent face pack. The same mixture can be applied to the rest of your body by mixing larger quantities in the same proportion. The mixture can be applied after using a cleanser on your face and body. Rinse it off with warm water after about half an hour.

Another face pack that is quite effective for a glowing look can be made by mixing gram flour and milk powder in a 1:2 ratio and adding a few drops of lemon juice to make a paste. The paste should be left on for half an hour before rinsing off with warm water.

Milk owes its benefits of skin care to its fat and lactic acid content. This alpha hydroxy acid has the ability to penetrates the skin. It also sothes the skin, leaving it supple and smooth. A simple recipe of a tsp of milk powder with 2 tsp of gram flour makes the skin glow. A paste of 1 tsp milk powder + 2 drops basil + 1 pinch sugar + 2 drops lemon is applied on the face. Wiped after 10 - 15 minutes, is beneficial for moisturising dry skin.
