Lemon & Milk Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) Homemade Face Mask

Cleopatra definitely knew what she was doing when she filled her tub with milk and bathed in it.

Milk is a natural source of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), and AHAs are commonly used in skincare to reduce wrinkles or signs of aging, and improving overall skin texture and smoothness. How does it work? By exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin, leaving a blemish-free skin that’s smooth like a baby’s bottom.

I never speed up at yellow traffic lights, I pay all my bills on time, and I religiously dot all my i’s and cross all my t’s.

But when it comes to pimples, I somehow lose all sense and sensibility. Whenever a huge pimple stares back at me, mocking and taunting me, my self-discipline takes a nosedive and all I can think of is to quickly go for the kill.

9 Things You’re Probably Doing Wrong When You Wash Your Face

9 Things You’re Probably Doing Wrong When You Wash Your Face

So, you think you know how to wash your face?

I certainly thought I did. After all, this was something that I’ve been doing nearly my whole, entire life.

I mean, I know I have troubles drawing the perfect, balanced cat-eye, and I mess up my eyeshadows pretty darn often. I can’t put on or remove my contact lenses without a mirror, and embarrassingly enough, I still get nicks from shaving every now and then.
