Because of its skin benefits, milk has long been used in beauty rituals. It can soothe sunburn, soften and smooth rough skin, moisturize and soothe inflamed skin. Milk baths are popular, and best of all, you can prepare them yourself at home. Below, we bring you a DIY recipe for a warm bath and learn all the ways to improve its effect.

DIY recipe: Milk bath

Fill the bowl with warm water and add one or two cups of milk powder (depending on the size of your bowl). Dermatologists recommend whole milk, which contains more lactic acid, to improve the effects of peeling and hydration. For people who don’t use animal products, soy milk powder, almond milk, or coconut milk may be a good alternative. Before entering the bath, mix the water and milk by hand and add the ingredients as desired …

A cup of ground oats

This step is not mandatory, but oats are a great supplement for a milk bath because it soothes dry skin and itchy sensation.

1/2 cup oil (optional)

For more hydration, add a little warm coconut or another oil (avocado, jojoba, olive …) to the milk bath.

A few drops of essential oil (optional)

To improve the smell of the bath, you can add a few drops of lavender essential oil, or another essential oil that is safe for the skin. But be careful, especially if you have sensitive skin, as essential oils can cause allergic reactions.

Finally, relax comfortably in a warm bath and relax. For best results, stay there for about 20-30 minutes. You will definitely enjoy it! Via Prostock-Studio / iStock Getty Images
