With the fall well in the air, many of us feel like cozying up inside more. 'Tis the season of hugs, after all, and we kind of want our body lotions, serums and creams to feel like they've given us a hug. In other words, to have our beauty routine feel more like a spa ritual at home than a strict regimen, especially after careful summer skincare.

Well, to add that luxurious touch, look no further than milk. Yes, milk as an ingredient. Cow milk, goat milk, donkey milk, even buffalo — they have all found their way into formulations that deliver multiple benefits. Using animal milk in care and beauty has been practiced all around the world for thousands of years, and with all the research into the many benefits of milk in beauty products, it's easy to see why: milk contains natural AHAs plus many proteins that have scientifically proven benefits on skin regeneration and cell renewal, and antimicrobial, antifungal and even antiviral activities. Milk proteins are also very effective for skin conditions like acne, eczema or burns, and even assist in improving hair growth!

Since milk care products also enhance the skin barrier, consider adding some of these into your routine to give your skin some TLC and making it strong and resilient for incoming colder days.
