Dry Skin; you can have soft skin like baby soaking in powered milk, start the bath tub.

Powdered Milk Bath For Moist Skin

It is a real treat to feel silky smooth, to the touch. I plan on taking more baths. Milk Baths that is. Do enjoy. Does your skin feeling a bit rough around the edges with the summer heat or the dry winter air? This remedy is decades old. Take a milk bath. Milk is a natural moisturizer loaded with vitamins A and D. Soaking in it will soften the dry body into moist, subtle, soft skin. I recommend this one. I give this a personal A+. Cost effective and worth every minute to care for yourself.

  • Start a nice warm tub of bath water, add 1/2 cup powdered milk and a dash more for good measure. Fill the tub to desired water level.
  • Now do your thing soak, relax, meditate, read, shut your eyes, lite a candle, veg out, sip wine, play some tunes, most important enjoy.
  • When you get out of the tub pat the skin dry. Do not rub off the moisture.
  • Apply your favorite lotion and rub into your smooth skin.

Natural remedy for dirty hands.


If you have hard working hands and they need a super clean then try this natural cleanser. No harsh chemicals. Oatmeal is a natural exhibitor and powdered milk makes the hands feel silky smooth. This is excellent for gardeners and mechanics.

  • Take 1 or 2 tablespoons of dry oatmeal, mix with 2 or 3 tablespoons of powdered milk in a small bowl. (1 to 2 ratio)

  • Add a few drops of warm water, mix to form a paste.

  • Rub the paste together with both hands for a few minutes. Use vigorous motion for extra dirty or grimy hands.

  • Push back the cuticles and work under the nails to remove any dirt and or grime.

  • Rinse well in warm water.

  • Pat your hands dry.

  • Apply your favorite lotion.

  • Now, kiss your hands, they will love you, lol.

      Thanks for the soaking recipe, look forward to it soon!


      Have you ever heard of Bentonite clay? It's also some amazing stuff. I rub it all over before showering, and it has the same lovely effect on the skin, so smooth and soft and baby-like. Wonderful stuff.

      Am not concerned about having soft and nice skin and such, but a relaxing in the tub sure sounds great to unwind and chill out! Maybe I can just use the milk and take a box of cereal and a bowl/spoon with me.

      Hello Sister

      Wow I am so impressed with this article, I have used different things for my skin, but never knew about powder milk and I like the one with the oatmeal as well!

      Great article! Thanks for posting it!

      I will try it!

      These recipes sound really relaxing, and I think would be equally welcome in the winter as they are in the summer, though I will definitely have to try the oatmeal thing after working in the garden next summer.

      My Mom use to keep a soak filled with oatmeal and tied closed in the bathroom for us to bathe with when I was very small. The oatmeal was great on dry cracked skin from the cold weather. She kept that soak replenished for continual use.
