Let me set this straight: I love milk. I’ve been drinking it since I was a kid and ice cream just would not be the same without it. But as a dermatologist, I’ve come to recognize that the white nectar is problematic for the skin. The links between diet and acne have been controversial and mired in anecdotal stories for the last century. When I went through my formal training the dogma was “Food does not cause acne.” However there is a growing body of evidence that what you put in your mouth may show up on your skin; and wholesome milk is at the center of that controversy.
We always heard from our parents that we should drink milk because of it benefits to our body and sometimes they forced us even though we don’t like it. Strong immune system, strong bones and teeth, prevention of some illnesses such as tooth decay and osteoporosis, and smooth skin are the benefits that we could get from milk. Many people around the world use milk as a beauty regimen. We all know that Cleopatra used milk bath to condition her skin, because of that women around the world following her. As of today there cosmetics products made from milk are available in different forms such as milk soap, cream, moisturisers cleanser and lotions. But do we have the idea on how milk is capable of making our skin beautiful? May be we don’t.
