Lactic Acids in Milk also help to stimulate the collagen production in your skin – collagen is what keeps skin firm and supple – so simple Milk contains two of the ingredients of an expensive anti ageing cream. Collagen production is also said to be boosted by infusing as much vitamin anti oxidant into our skin as possible.
This possibly helps explain some of the renown benefits of Argan Oil for skin care.

Why use a product that says it contains “some” AHA fruit acids when we have the fruit in the first place.

Anti Ageing Milk and Honey Skin Cleanser
Milk and honey is an ancient anti-wrinkle cleanser that dates back to the Pharaohs. There is now some scientific support for this treatment. The milk is rich in lactic acid which cleanses pores and helps get rid of debris from the skin. It also stimulates the production of collagen. Oily, blemish prone skin can benefit from the ex foliating power of alphahydroxy acids (AHA’s) which peel away layers of dead skin cells.
Milk also contains AHA’s so we can use this as part of our cleanser.The honey is rich in humectants which help keep your skin hydrated which in turn increases its elasticity. Massage this into your skin and leave it on for ten minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water.
