What Is A Cleansing Milk and Why Should You Use It?

Soothing Cleansing Milk


Got milk? And we’re not talking about the low-fat or semi-skimmed type. If you’re picturing the gentle nature of milk and its nourishing properties, you're on the right track! Well, sort-of. That's because cleansing milk isn't actually made of milk!

At its very basic, cleansing milk has a much gentler approach to cleaning your skin. If you suffer from dry or sensitive skin, they might be exactly what you need in your skin care regimen.

What Is a Cleansing Milk?

So, what is a cleansing milk and how does it differ from other cleansers? Milk cleansers consist of oil and water, and they have a texture that is luxurious and silky (like milk), making them light and as foamy as a cloud with emollient qualities, leaving your skin lovely and smooth!

Emollients are effective for filling in the cracks and crevices of dry skin or fine lines and replenishing any damage on the surface of your skin. Emollient-rich ingredients like oils and vitamin E break down dirt and makeup, and remove them without stripping your skin. Natural cleansing milks are made with gentle, concentrated nutrients for the skin, which makes them so ideal for sensitive or dry skin or skin that needs a break to recover. Forget those conventional cleansers made with harsh ingredients that can strip your skin and further exasperate any skin woes.

Many prefer to apply cleansing milk directly to skin without water, since the lathering action comes from the fats in the formula itself. Water is really only needed to rinse the cleanser away after you’ve massaged it over your skin.
