Another popular skin treatment, especially among rich women of the past, is milk. The lactic acid in milk acts as a gentle exfoliant, while vitamins A and D nourish skin. Try putting a cup of powdered milk in your bath along with a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Honey is one of the oldest moisturizers in the world. It has antibacterial and antioxidant properties and locks in moisture. Another moisturizer your grandmother might have recommended is petroleum jelly, aka Vaseline. It's thick and seals in moisture, but it also seals in everything else. People with very dry skin or chapped lips are the best candidates for this great moisturizer. Go old school next time you're looking for a beauty solution.
