Milk Bath

Sunday Love, Link & Magic #3

June 16, 2013

Happy weekend, my loves!

Don’t forget that today is Father’s Day! Be sure to call your pops and tell him how much you appreciate him.

Now here’s me quickly sharing with you some of my beauty favorites from the week.

This Week’s LOVE

Cool milk baths on a hot sumer day.

It finally feels like summer in Paris! And because air conditioners don’t exist here, one simple way to cool off while treating your skin at the same time is to soak in a nice cool milk bath.

Milk Bath

Just take one cup of milk and pour it in your bath water. Milk is a natural skin exfoliant, and will help to cleanse and soften your skin.

I also love doing this DIY milk mask!

This Week’s LINK

Riding The Bus In L.A. is a blog that has nothing to do with riding the bus in L.A.

You’ll find a good mix of things here.

There are posts that deal with beauty, like Beauty School Dropout and product reviews like this one, Beam Me Up – Benefit High Beam.

But what really keeps me coming back for more is the blogger’s humorous cultural observations on life.

My two favorites are People I feel Sorry For In The Music Business and The Intern.

The writer behind this rather new-ish blog goes by the name of Miss P. And she always writes with remarkable wit and honesty.

Talent like this should not go unnoticed!

This Week’s MAGIC

Did you know that babies, those cute drooling gargly creatures, have the inherent ability to recognize beautiful faces?

There are studies that show babies tend to stare longer at beautiful faces that adults would generally also consider to be attractive.

Is this proof that there is such a thing as a Universality Of Attractiveness???

    My (Southern) family recommended milk baths and egg whites. They said to lather the egg whites on skin, wait 5 mins & then rinse. I haven’t tried it yet, but your article has motivated me to experiment. I can’t wait to check out the LA bus blog. I am sure it is more entertaining than my commute.

      Cool! Any other tips to glean from your southern fam?

      I’ve used egg masks before too and I felt like it helped to tighten my skin. But the thing I’ve noticed with these homemade recipes is that the effects are very short-lasting.
