I know you have heard of milk and honey? Well this is slightly different but just as awesome. The reason full fat milk is great for your face is because it is a natural source of alpha hydroxy acid. Alpha Hydroxy Acid, or AHA’s, are commonly found in many skincare products these days. Added to the milk is just lemon which is another great natural source of AHA.

Alpha Hydroxy Acid Face Masks reduce wrinkles, age spots and gives you the smoothest skin ever, no joke! Your face will be baby soft, perfect for a great night’s rest. I recommend doing this face mask before bed to end the night with complete and utter relaxation.

How to make your Milk and Lemon Alpha Hydroxy Mask:

Lemon Plus Milk Alpha Hydroxy Acid Mask


  • 1 tablespoon full fat milk
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 small slice of lemon


  • Mix the lemon juice and the milk together very well
  • Add the lemon slice to the mixture
  • leave the mix somewhere where it will not spill for 3-4 hours. Do not put it in the fridge
  • Apply the mix carefully to your face, wear a towel to catch and drippys
  • Apply it very carefully on a clean face, taking care to avoid the eyes.
  • Leave the mask on for 15 minutes and rinse well
  • Apply your moisturizer and voila you are done! If you make too much, use it on your arms and body as well, just rinse well.

How did the Alpha Hydroxy Acid Mask work for me?

I am not a milk drinker by any means but having a little one, there is always a gallon in the fridge at any given time. I made my mix around lunch time and it was ready by dinner.

Applying the mask to my face was a bit odd but I am used to applying mixtures that are not too thick to my face.  Just trust that even though it isn’t a thick gooey mask, it works just as well.

My skin was so soft it was unreal, I did not even need moisturizer even though I still put one on for good measure.
