Calling all K-beauty enthusiasts! If you've been diving into the world of Korean skincare, chances are the term 'UYU' has tickled your curiosity more than once. Well, hold onto your sheet masks because here's the delightful twist: the hidden gem behind this K-beauty magic is none other than good ol' cow milk! Yup, you heard it right. We're about to spill the creamy details on the skin-loving wonders of Uyu and spill the beans on the perfect partners that team up with it for skin that'll have you radiating like a K-pop star. Get ready, because we're about to plunge into the fascinating universe of Uyu!

What is “Uyu”?

In Korean, "우유" (pronounced as "uyu") means "milk." It's a common term used to refer to the white, nutritious liquid produced by mammals, typically cows, and consumed as a beverage or used in various food preparations.

What are the skincare benefits of milk?

Milk contains several components that can offer skincare benefits when used topically or when included in skincare products. Here are some potential skincare benefits of milk:

  • Moisturising 

Milk is a natural source of hydration due to its water content. It can help moisturise and soften the skin, making it beneficial for people with dry or dehydrated skin.

  • Exfoliation

The lactic acid in milk is a gentle exfoliant that can help remove dead skin cells, promoting a smoother and more radiant complexion. This can contribute to a reduction in the appearance of dull and uneven skin.

  • Brightening

The lactic acid in milk can also help in lightening dark spots and hyperpigmentation over time. Regular use can lead to a more even skin tone.

  • Soothing

The proteins and fats in milk can have a soothing effect on the skin, making it a potential remedy for irritated or sensitive skin. It may help calm redness and inflammation.

  • Anti-Ageing

The lactic acid and other compounds in milk can contribute to the improvement of skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles, making the skin appear more youthful and supple.

  • Sunburn Relief

The proteins in milk can have a soothing effect on sunburned skin, offering some relief from discomfort.
