Soak but not too much
"Use milk soaps or baths like regular soap," De Ocampo says. Don't leave it on your skin too long; 5 to 10 minutes should be enough. Whether at a spa or at home, the key to silkier skin after a milk bath is in properly rinsing the milk off after you have soaked in it.

De Ocampo says milk baths are generally safe for anyone; just don't soak in them too long. If you choose to use a commercial product rather than plain milk, read the label to make sure it doesn't contain any harmful ingredients. Salicylic acid is an exfoliant that can cause skin dryness, De Ocampo cautions.

Make sure the bath's temperature is just right. Excessively hot baths are not good for people with high blood pressure and can be draining for most people.

Materials:

A bath tub filled with warm water

1 and ½ quarts of whole milk

Stove

Pan

Measuring cup


How to:

Find a clean pan in your kitchen and measure out the milk. (If you want to use more than the above listed, that’s fine but you don’t need more than ½ gallon.) Pour the milk into the pan and gently warm up the milk on low to medium-low heat. Your milk need not come to a boil! While the milk is heating, start running the warm bath water. When the milk is heated pour it into the bath and viola! Your milk bath is complete.


At this point you can soak and enjoy. However, many people complain about the scent of a milk bath. There are a numerous optional items you can add to the bath to make the stink disappear. You may want to add to the bath some citrus oils or a strong scented flower essence such as rose oil. Adding lightly crushed lavender petals will cover any odd smell and its fragrance is known for its soothing qualities. Adding fragrant crushed herbs such as mint or thyme can also help.


If you are feeling particularly indulgent, add chocolate shavings or powdered cocoa to the milk while you are warm the milk. Remember to warm the milk and chocolate gradually because chocolate burns easily and burned foods will not ease the bad smell that can occur during the bath.


Don’t forget to drain the tub and then shower after you are done soaking to wash off the offensive scent that milk residue can leave behind
