CLEOPA­TRA’S UN­KEPT SE­CRET: Al­mond milk is the new beauty po­tion

U Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Aside from the fact that it’s a great al­ter­na­tive for ve­g­ans and the lac­tose-in­tol­er­ant, al­mond milk is now the new po­tion for ac­quir­ing beau­ti­ful and vi­brant skin. Cleopa­tra – the last pharaoh of an­cient Egypt and queen of glo­ri­ous beauty – had known the beauty ben­e­fits of milk and used it in a bathing rit­ual that achieved a leg­endary sta­tus over the cen­turies. And now, al­mond milk – the new beauty po­tion, is cov­eted for its health ben­e­fits, scent and sa­vory taste in ad­di­tion to its beauty ben­e­fits. Al­mond milk is con­sid­ered an an­tiox­i­dant and it’s a great source of vi­ta­min E, which is es­sen­tial for bet­ter ag­ing and ob­tain­ing a healthy and glow­ing skin. It can be used in mas­sage ses­sion as it soothes the senses; and if you’re hav­ing a mi­graine af­ter a hec­tic day at the of­fice, you can sim­ply drink it to un­wind. Al­mond milk’s wide range of ben­e­fits in­clude its rich­ness in cal­cium and pro­tein con­tent, which is good for bone strength, its high lev­els of vi­ta­min D, which is good for the heart and its vi­ta­min B, ri­boflavin and iron con­tent, which is ben­e­fi­cial for mus­cle strength. The fiber con­tent found in al­mond milk also aids in healthy di­ges­tion. This won­drous milk also helps you see bet­ter in the dark due to its vi­ta­min A con­tent, which is re­spon­si­ble for help­ing your eyes ad­just to dif­fer­ent light in­ten­si­ties. Other than its beauty and health ben­e­fits, al­mond milk does mir­a­cles to keep your weight in check, as it has lower calo­ries than the reg­u­lar cow or soy milk. It can be the per­fect drink for your on-the-go sum­mer trips and out­door events, as it doesn’t need to be stored in the fridge for fresh­ness.
