Coffee on Monday mornings? Yes, of course, who can say No to it. Afterall, you have to deal with the ‘Monday Blues’. Do you remember those days when your day started with a glass of milk before school? Our mom forced us to have milk considering it extremely beneficial for us. With age, we, however, stopped having milk and this is not at all a good habit. Apart from having various health benefits, milk has several skin and hair benefits as well. Let me convince you by giving some deeper insights on this so that you make this a daily routine for sure.
The health benefits of milk are as follow.
10. STRONG BONE ZONE
Yes, as we all know the primary benefit of drinking milk daily is ensuring that we have stronger bones even after 40 or 50. There are higher chances that you will face arthritis free zone forever and no low bone density will ever disturb you.
9. BEST SOURCE OF CALCIUM
No calcium tablets can ever beat the power of milk. Milk is the best source of calcium and this will make your bones stronger. Sufficient calcium in your body will make your teeth also stronger.
8. BYE TO DEHYDRATION
What beats dehydration or its occurrence? Water? Correct, but milk also rehydrates your body as it also contains enough amount of water molecules. Having a glass of milk daily can balance your body with enough water content.
7. RICH IN MINERALS AND CARBOHYDRATES
Milk contains minerals which can keep you fit and is also immensely beneficial for great eyesight. And it also has carbohydrates which can make you more active by increasing your energy.
6. ALTERNATIVE FOR VITAMIN D SOURCE
We all know, the supreme and the strongest source of Vitamin D is the sun and that is extremely important for the body. And milk is rich in Vitamin D too which increases our immunity system and reduces inflammation.
5. NO SENSITIVE TEETH
A major percentage of people face the sensitive teeth issues from a tender age these days. The reason for this is cavities and weaker gums and teeth. And a glass of milk daily ensures that your teeth will not have a sensitive area and would remain strong always.
4. DEALING WITH MIGRAINES
Are you suffering from a migraine and none of those tablets or exercises are helping you? Switch to a glass of milk daily and this can decrease your migraine problem as it is rich in calcium and calcium is capable enough to fight a migraine.
3. POWER PACKET OF ENERGY
Milk is surely a power packet of energy. You can easily beat your hunger pangs with a glass of milk and it is way better than munching fried foods or packaged food items.
2. DE STRESSES YOU AFTER A LONG DAY
Consuming warm milk daily before going to bed is a great time to have it. It has the power to de-stress your mind and relaxes your nerves and tiring muscles after a hard day’s work.
1. STRONG AND FLEXI MUSCLES
Let aside bones, milk is great for giving you strong and flexible muscles. It helps in rebuilding muscles and is suggested to have it after a work out session. It makes the muscles get its proper nutrition.
These are some skin benefits of milk.
10. LOVELY AND GLOWY SKIN
Well, get over those fairness creams and switch to milk for glowing skin. Milk has lactic acid which acts as enzymes and exfoliants in having smooth, acne free skin. The amino acids in it can make the skin naturally moisturised.
9. IT IS A NATURAL CLEANSER
Replace all your face cleansers with cold unboiled milk in your face cleansing process. Just dip a cotton ball in milk and apply on your face daily or twice in a week for cleansing the face.
8. RELIVES FROM SKIN IRRITATION
If you are having any mosquito bite or any kind of allergic reactions on your face, you can soothe them with milk. Buttermilk or sweet milk can be applied on the irritated area and can be left to dry and it works like wonders.
7. HELPS IN SHRINKING THOSE FACIAL PORES
Many people face the issue of having larger pores on the face. Applying sour cream or sour milk to the pores can shrink your pores. Apply the milk directly on to the face daily and leave for some time and wash off.
6. ELIMINATES THE DEAD CELLS
Dead cells are annoying and at the same time, they make your skin look unhealthy. All you have to do is dissolve the salt in boiling water and add non-fat milk in it. This will be like a natural face scrub and can help in removing dead cells.
5. TARGETS THE SUNBURNS
Suntanned after a beach holiday? Or got severe sunburns on the skin? Ditch all the expensive treatments with buttermilk and see the sun burns getting lesser day by day.
4. BYE TO AGEING WRINKLES AND FINE LINES
Not even kidding but milk can even help you in looking younger than your age. A smooth paste of mashed banana and raw milk can fight wrinkles and remove fine lines better than any other ageing creams of A-listed brands.
3. NO MORE DARK CIRCLES AND EYE BAGS
Drinking milk daily can definitely treat the dark circles and the under eye bags. But, even a direct way to treat them is applying cold raw milk under the eyes using a cotton ball. Do this daily and no more ugly dark circles on your skin will be there.
2. A NATURAL MOISTURISER
Beginning the day with moisturising your skin is a good idea. Apply unboiled milk or natural milk cream daily on your face and neck before taking bath and this would act as a natural moisturiser for your skin.
1. TREATS ACNE AND PIMPLES
This therapy would not work if you have oily skin. For the people having sensitive to dry skin and if they face problems of period pimples or acne then you can treat them with raw milk. It will also hydrate your skin.
Milk has multiple hair benefits too.
10. NO HAIR, HERE AND THERE
In this age, we face severe hair loss and hair fall issues and one major reason for this is improper diet. Including milk in your daily diet can make your hair strong and there will be lesser hair loss.
9. STRONG HAIR AND NO BREAKAGE
After hair fall, another issue most of us from this gen face is hair breakage. This happens because of weaker hair. Milk in your daily diet ensures that your hair is strong enough to not break from the middle.
8. FRIZZY HAIR CAN BE TAMED
Taming the frizzy hair is not an easy task but milk can really be helpful in this case. You can either spray milk on your scalp and hair or just simply apply milk regularly on your hair and scalp like water and wash after half an hour.
7. SHINY BILLBOARD KIND OF HAIR
No, the girls showing their mane in the shampoo ads or banners are no lie or myth. You can get alike shiny and lustrous hair by just adopting the milk therapy. Mix it with coconut oil and apply on the hair for best results.
6. REPLACE THE CONDITIONERS WITH MILK
Conditioning your hair is a must as this locks the moisture in your hair. But instead of using those chemical conditioners you can use milk and the results will be even better.
5. LONG HAIR DREAMS SORTED
If you are also one of those who loves the long lustrous hair but your hair is not growing then start having milk regularly in your diet and see the quick difference as calcium can be helpful in the hair growth.
4. VOLUMINOUS HAIR FOR EVERYONE
Personally speaking, I have been crazy for voluminous and healthy hair. And I have personally experienced a massive fall in my hair volume when I stopped drinking milk. So, you know what I mean.
3. AT HOME KERATIN TREATMENT
We tend to spend a huge amount on keratin treatment at the salon but this can be done at home. Milk is rich in calcium and this infuses enough keratin in your hair. A glass of milk daily along with applying milk on hair twice a week can be a great keratin treatment.
2. CURE FOR THE DAMAGED HAIR
If your hair is damaged with the regular usage of heating tools on hair or by any other means then this can be cured with milk. Milk has the properties which can soften your hair and work on damaged areas.
1. SPLITS ENDS? WHAT’S THAT?
Really, a person who has milk in his/her diet daily does not even know what split ends are because split ends is a sign of unhealthy hair and milk ensures your hair is healthy enough.
These were some of the best advantages of milk for skin, health and hair. So, what are you up to? Milk after breakfast or at night? Any of the ways are good.
