Benefits of Homemade Milk Mask:
Powdered milk contains lactic acid which helps to naturally remove build-up dead skin cells and reveal softer skin.
Honey is antibacterial and anti-septic, and will prevent any breakouts, but will also hydrate dry skin.
Aloe Vera is a natural soother and healer, and is one of the most amazing ingredients you can use on dry skin.
