Many people wonder what exactly a milk bath is. Milk baths have been used for centuries. Cleopatra would soak in a bath with milk and honey. The milk and honey is said to revive your skin by removing dead cells, unclogging pores, and making it softer! Essential oils have also become very popular in our homes, which can also be added to enhance your baths!
Milk baths have also become popular in photography as the symbolize purity. The white in the water represents a clean and fresh beginning, which can mean a lot of different things for different people!
I really enjoyed capturing these images from a milk bath session. This beautiful woman was more than nervous about taking these photos. "Why?" you may ask.. "She looks amazing," you might think. We all have things about ourselves that we are not always the most secure about. Those can be physical things, emotional things, personality traits, etc. Most of the time we are the only ones that see those weaknesses or "problems."
We all know we are supposed to love ourselves for exactly who we are and who we were designed to be, but that can be hard. I don't believe you shouldn't work to achieve attainable goals to make yourself better, we should never settle. But we are amazing individuals who have a lot of amazing things to give those we love. We are the world to someone, and if you're lucky you are the world to many. So we need to embrace and love ourselves RIGHT NOW.
So this amazing woman took a moment to embrace how beautiful she really is and was more than pleased with the results! It is a good feeling to be able to help someone feel beautiful!
