G’morning, girls! I hope you got your beauty sleep last night. I was up late partying with C. Bale (I wish; don’t tell El Hub, LOL!).
Tabs says hi! He’s in the doghouse today because he was naughty yesterday. He kicked kitty litter all over the floor and felt like meowing all night long.
With my help he put together this little story that he hopes you enjoy.
The Beauty Benefits of Milk
In addition to promoting better sleep, milkâ€™s beauty-related benefits include…

SLEEP: Milk helps promote better sleep.
TEETH: Milk helps reduce the risk of cavities (with normal brushing, flossing, check-ups and cleanings).
HAIR: Milk helps promote healthy hair.
MUSCLES: Milk helps rebuild muscles.
NAILS: Milk helps with stronger nails.
Try These Milk Beauty Recipes
Milk has been used throughout history as a beauty treatment. OG beauty diva Cleopatra was famous for taking milk baths for her skin. Here are a few easy, do-it-yourself milk beauty recipes to try at home. NOTE: If you’re allergic to milk or are lactose intolerant, you should skip these!
1. A Milk Bath for Smooth, Soft Skin
Add 2-4 cups of fresh milk or buttermilk to your bathwater as you fill the tub. Soak for 20 minutes. Gently rub with a washcloth or loofa to slough away dead skin. Rinse thoroughly after soaking.
2. A Gentle Facial Scrub
Gently massage your face with a mixture of one teaspoon of powdered whole milk and one teaspoon of honey. Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water.
3. A Makeup Remover
Grab a small bowl and mix together one tablespoon of whole milk with a few drops of sweet almond oil. Gently dab the milk and oil mixture onto your face with a cotton ball or pad. Then, using a fresh piece of cotton, wipe away your makeup. Rinse thoroughly with water.
Thanks to some warm milk, I did manage to get my beauty sleep last night.
I hope you had a great night. Are you ready to tackle Tuesday with me?
