Present in the market almost 100 years ago, rose milk is a body deodorant widely used for skin care
Traditional and present in the market since 1929, rose milk is a product that has passed from generation to generation and is recognized for its benefits for the skin. The deodorant cologne, with a very vintage packaging and a mild smell, has a lasting action and is very effective for many treatments. Meet the main ones and learn how to use it.
What is rose milk for?
When you pass the eye through the jar, you can not even imagine the various functions of rose milk since in theory, it would only serve to perfume the body. The case is that its formulation provides essential substances for skin care.
- Zinc oxide: has curative, antiseptic and astringent action;
- Benzalkonium Chloride: potent antiseptic action;
- Sorbitol: derived from sugar, this type of alcohol acts as a humectant;
- Chlorhexidine digluconate: antiseptic and healing action;
For the components, you can already get an idea of the benefits of this product for the skin, which go far beyond the simple deodorant function for which it was developed. Look at other benefits related to rose milk.
Sanitize the skin
Before going to bed, it is essential to wash your face to remove accumulated dirt and makeup residue throughout the day. In fact, it is considered one of the best makeup removers on the market.
Because of its astringent function, rose milk is excellent for cleaning the face with oiliness or dirt due to air impurities and contamination. You will see the result in cotton.
Help lighten dark spots
Regions that darken over time such as the armpits and groin, in addition to acne marks on the face, can be removed by daily application of rose milk.
Some homemade recipes even suggest combining the product with baking soda to improve the effect. Although it is controversial, there are many records of people who have performed tests and pass it.
Fight the oiliness
Its astringent action, combined with alcohol in the composition, combats excess oiliness. But be careful: alcohol can cause a rebound effect, that is, worsen the oiliness instead of treating it.
To prevent this from happening, it is better to use milk only once a day if you have oily or combination skin.
Dry blackheads and pimples
Uniformize the skin
Another utility, although little known of milk is this. When applied before makeup, it works with a first die that reduces oiliness, closes pores and helps to fix products for longer.
Fights the bad smell of the armpits and feet
The deodorant action cannot be ruled out either. Rose milk prevents underarm odor and foot odor because benzalkonium chloride is bactericidal and zinc oxide is antifungal.
How is it used?
Since its launch, the product has always been sold in the same pink container, between 60 ml. and 310 ml., and with screw cap.
To use it, simply moisten a cotton or tissue paper with the liquid and apply it to the face. Its use is recommended, at most, twice a day.
If you want to use it as a deodorant, you can take advantage of a roll packaging to facilitate the application.
