Milk & Honey Bath Soak
Milk and honey have been used in baths for thousands of years. Cleopatra soaked in fragrant milk and honey baths, which when mixed together kept her skin soft whilst looking beautiful and radiant.
Milk contains lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). AHAs penetrate the top layers of the skin to slough off dead skin cells. Exfoliation stimulates the skin and healthy cells are regenerated. Using AHAs in your skincare allows the skin to rejuvenate itself more quickly. milk is also rich in minerals and vitamin content, including vitamin A, B and D, calcium and protein.
Honey is rich in antibacterial, antioxidant and antifungal properties. It provides soothing and anti-inflammatory effects.
2 tbsp honey
100ml full fat / whole milk
Extras - Epsom/Magnesium/Pink Himalayan salt
Gently warm the milk and honey, until the honey is fully dissolved, do not boil!
Leave the mixture to cool and run your bath, I like mine nice and hot and I add some Epsom/Magnesium salts too (Why not even add a couple of drops of lavender oil!)
Pour the milk and honey into a hot bath. Lie back in the bath, relax and gently rub your skin with a flannel or natural sponge to remove dead skin cells
Rinse your body afterwards
I love a good body scrub before getting into my baths. Read more about my scrubbing ritual's here:
