Buttermilk is rich in essential fats that help improve skin tone

Buttermilk as we know it is one of the main ingredients in most Indian households. Summer and winter, we can never keep enough buttermilk in our kitchen. It rightly has many health benefits such as keeping you cool in the summer, aiding digestion, cleaning your colon and others. It’s no surprise that this superfood also has many benefits for the skin. Buttermilk contains lactic acid, which contains good bacteria and fats that work like magic for the skin by penetrating directly into the skin’s surface and removing dead cells. On top of that, buttermilk also contains astringent properties that lighten dark spots for a naturally clear and even complexion. Buttermilk is also a great source of calcium and protein, which increase collagen levels in the skin to treat fine lines and the first signs of aging.
