Q: What is a natural way to soften my skin?

A: You’re going to love this. There are natural skin softeners right in your kitchen. Open up your fridge and grab the milk, and then grab the honey from the cabinet and head for a soak in the tub. The lactic acid in milk is great for your skin and honey, a natural humectant and antibacterial, will help trap moisture in your skin.

Try this.

  1. Add 5 or 6 cups of milk and one cup of honey into a warm bath.
  2. Mix it in the water well.
  3. Soak in the tub for about a half hour to capture all the antibacterial and moisturizing benefits. (Glass of wine and trashy novel optional!)

I’d love to hear back from you once you’ve tried my secret formula. Let me know what magic the milk and honey bath worked on your skin.
