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