Is Donkey Milk The Next Beauty Trend? It Might Be The Ingredient You've Been Missing From Your Skincare Routine
There's no shortage of beauty remedies in the world. We've all heard of the miraculous properties of coconut oil and how apple cider vinegar is essentially a cure-all. Now, the donkey milk beauty trend seems to be the latest— and strangest— craze. While there are a lot different trends that are known to beauty lovers everywhere, there are also some odd ones, like donkey milk, in this world. Snail facials, fish pedicures, and salmon enzymes are just some of the strange things we've seen. So, the real questions is, what's the deal with donkey milk?
The trend is one of many that have originated in Korea and moved over to the States in the past several years. Remember that little thing called BB cream? Definitely a Korean beauty secret. However, the donkey milk trend seems to go back, like way back, with reports that Cleopatra used donkey milk to bathe. If it's good enough for Cleopatra, it's certainly good enough for us.
Now that the Korean beauty revolution is ramping up stateside, what exactly are the benefits of this odd beauty secret? For starters, donkey milk is great for those with sensitive skin. The protein levels and properties in the milk allow it to soothe skin that can't handle traditionally-made creams. Not to mention the stuff is said to reduce to wrinkles and continue to prevent them!
Considering that I love goat cheese, I'm not quite as freaked out by this trend as I was by fish pedicures, but I've got to admit that it's still kind of quirky. Napoleon and Kate Somerville both have products featuring donkey's milk, so try if you dare!
