Mariah Carey Reveals That She Bathes In Cold Milk
Mariah Carey says she bathes in milk as a beauty treatment
Mariah Carey said that she bathes in milk.
In a profile published by The Guardian on Monday, singer : She bathes in milk.
At the start of the interview, reporter Simon Hattenstone launched into a rapid-fire round of questioning, pressing Carey to confirm or dispel rumors about her famously diva-esque habits. She denied that she demands new toilet seats at every hotel, for example, and that she once demanded 20 white kittens for a performance.
She also denied the rumor that she bathes in mineral water. Instead, she said, she opts for milk.
"I bathe in milk," she told the Guardian. "Yes, sometimes I use milk as a beauty treatment. I don't want to give away all my secrets."
It may sound expensive, impractical, and outlandish — maybe even more so than bathing in mineral water — but it turns out there's some legitimacy behind Carey's milk soaks.
"Milk, in general, is a natural skin softener," dermatologist Dr. Marisa Garshick told INSIDER. "It contains lactic acid, which is an ingredient often used in cleansers, topical creams and peels to leave the skin glowing and soft by helping to remove any dead skin cells. Many products have been developed that take advantage of these benefits, without necessarily needing to dive into a tub of milk."
It's true: There are tons of skin-care products that claim to harness milk's natural properties. Before you use milk on your own skin, though, know that it's not a great choice for everyone.
"Some people can still be sensitive to lactic acid, so it is especially important to be cautious if you have sensitive skin and to remember [that] lactic acid can make you more sensitive in the sun," Garshick said.
When it comes to drinking milk, however, things get more complicated: A few studies have identified a possible link between dairy consumption and acne. It's not enough evidence to recommend thateveryonewith acne swear off milk and cheese, Garshick added. If you think dairy is playing a role in your skin issues, bring it up with a board-certified dermatologist, she said.
But if you ever feel like indulging your inner diva, Mariah Carey style — and if you're prepared to drop a lot of cash at the grocery store — a milk bath just might leave your skin smoother.
