Sep 8, 2017

Baby.  Enlarge image (© picture-alliance / maxppp) Do people tell you that you have a baby face? In Germany, you would be described as having a Milchgesicht!

The term Milchgesicht means "milk face". And trust us - if someone calls you that, take it as a compliment! Having a Milchgesicht means you have a baby face. You are a fountain of youth - a person that looks younger than they are.

Like a baby still dependent on milk, a person with a Milchgesicht has that look of youth and innocence. For those with a Milchgesicht, consider yourself blessed!
