Diet-wise, milk doesn't exactly have a glowing reputation for our complexions (dairy-induced acne 😱!), but it does have its rightful place in our beauty regimen—on top of our skin. In fact, the reigning queen of beauty Cleopatra loved taking moisturizing and repairing milk baths for glowy, silky-smooth skin. And great news for those with sensitive skin: it's a super soother. So whether you need a daily moisturizer or are looking for a peel that won't make you break out, these products have got you.
