In 2021, Song Hye Kyo revealed another one of her secrets to achieving flawless skin was through washing her face with milk, an ancient beauty tip used by royalty back in the days such as Cleopatra. She uses warm milk at the end of her cleansing routine to rinse her face. The AHA and abundant minerals in milk helps to soften the skin and gently remove dead skin cells while keeping the skin moisturized. Other benefits of milk on your skin include slowing the signs of aging, improving elasticity and the smoothness of your skin as well as brightening your complexion and reducing irritation.
