Cashew milk DIY masks: Time for wrinkles, acne, and dull hair to scoot

Being a chai addict isn’t easy, trust me when I say this because that’s the ugly habit I’ve developed over the years. When you have acne prone skin, it one gets worse and I had to visit a dermatologist to understand the factors that would contribute to the rise of breakouts. The first question she threw at me was, “Do you drink cow’s milk?” I answered with a yes, only to realise that’s where the problem lies for your skin. Because, the hormones in milk can easily clog up your pores and lead to inflammation when you drink it often. Here’s where I made a switch with that of plant-based cashew milk that’s doing a better job for my skin. It’s packed with vitamins, antioxidants, iron and zinc when consumed directly or applied topically on your skin and hair offers a bevy of  benefits. 

 

The milk can be derived by blending cashew seeds that are separated from the vivid-hued cashew apples. Cashew milk holds a good rap for it helps in boosting collagen, enhancing suppleness, adding lustre to dull hair, softening dry hair, promoting thick hair,  and delaying premature greying. Try these DIY masks that will give your skin and hair a truck-loads of attention.
