Incredible Buttermilk Benefits For Hair and Skin

It is a pity most of us keep ignoring the benefits of natural products and turn towards chemical treated ones. One such case is the benefits buttermilk has for hair and skin. Indian culture is to be praised for the fact that they know how to get the best out of buttermilk benefits.

Extremely loved all over the world, this cooling beverage has great benefits that would put to shame most products sold in stores today.

Besides being delicious, you can use buttermilk for a great number of issues, such as:

  1. Bleaching agent. Use it on your skin for a whiter, lighter complexion.
  2. Fight skin woes such as discoloration, spots and blemishes by giving yourself buttermilk facials.
  3. Tighten your skin and get rid of age spots.
  4. Cleanse your skin and remove all make-up traces with the help of a cotton ball dipped in buttermilk.
  5. Mix it with whatever products you have handy to exfoliate your skin.
  6. Use buttermilk as a first aid in case of sunburns to calm the skin. Mix it with mashed papaya or even tomatoes to form a paste.

Buttermilk is great for all types of skin, from oily to combination to normal skin.

As for what it can do to your hair, the benefits are just as numerous:

  1. Buttermilk can significantly change the texture of your hair.
  2. Get a clean scalp and a feeling of freshness with buttermilk mask.
  3. Fight dandruff and dryness by including buttermilk to your regular hair care regime.
  4. Proteins in buttermilk help nourish your hair and replenish all essential nutrients.

To get the most out of buttermilk, use it in hair masks. Mix a few tablespoons of buttermilk with an egg, a few tablespoons of olive oil, a mashed banana and two tablespoons of honey. Blend well and apply to your hair wrapping it in a shower cap. Leave it on for at least 20 minutes, then wash it off with a herbal shampoo.

Treat dandruff by applying it directly to your scalp along white vinegar and lemon juice.

However, we do advise you to get in touch with your dermatologist that will determine your skin type and help you incorporate buttermilk in your beauty regime.
