One of Song Hye-kyo’s skin secrets, the secret to her porcelain skin, is the milk washing method.
Song Hye-kyo revealed that she warms up the milk and applies it to her face as if pouring it on her face at the last stage of cleansing. This milk cleansing method removes dead skin cells and penetrates deep into the skin to maintain clear and clean skin.
With the recent drop in temperature, more and more people are paying attention to skin care. During the changing season, when there is a large temperature difference between morning and evening, the skin tends to become dry, and the condition of the skin changes suddenly, which can cause various troubles.
For this reason, moisture management is more important than ever in the cold season. It is better to use a face wash that contains moisturizing ingredients rather than soap with strong cleansing power, and wash with lukewarm water rather than hot water. Milk face wash or milk mask is also good because it can provide two effects of moisture and moisturizing.
It is said that milk has been used for skin care since ancient times. Cleopatra is imprinted in our memories as a representative beauty of the West, and the ancient Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, is famous for taking care of her skin by bathing in milk. She is also known to always bathe in milk when she travels, even when Popia, the wife of the ancient Roman emperor Nero, used fermented yogurt for her yogurt skincare routine.
Then, why is milk good for skin care?
This is because AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) an abundant minerals in milk provide moisture and nutrients to the skin, helping to keep the skin healthy. AHA component, also called lactic acid or lactic acid, is a natural moisturizing factor generated during the fermenting process of milk. Usually, when using it conveniently, rinsing with milk is often used in the last step of washing face. If you want a bigger effect, you can mix it with other ingredients to make a pack. Also, rather than simply washing your face with milk, you can wet gauze with milk and put it on your face like a pack, then remove it after about 20 minutes.
