Goat’s milk is full of amazing, beneficial properties for pure and naturally healthy skin care.
Goat’s milk is a great source of calcium, magnesium, protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin B5, and potassium, and jam-packed with anti-inflammatory properties, and many beauty gurus even use goat’s milk as a hair mask to make to strengthen their hair, make it soft, and to reduce dandruff and relieve a dry, itchy scalp that can be the result of shampoos full of detergents that strip hair of natural oils.
The benefits of goat's milk are numerous, especially when you can add some of these products to your hair and skincare routine!
The essential fatty acids found in goat’s milk have a Ph level similar to human skin, meaning it is easy to absorb and less irritating to sensitive skin. Some who suffer from skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, and acne have found some natural relief due to the anti-inflammatory and moisturizing effects of goat’s milk soap, lotion, masks, and shampoos.
Goat’s milk is particularly rich in Vitamin A, which encourages the production of healthy skin cells, lessens the appearance of wrinkles, and gives your skin a full, supple texture. It also strengthens the immune system so it can fight off bad bacteria which can clog your pores and cause acne and other skin irritations. Goat’s milk soap cleans without drying your skin and goat’s milk lotion can provide a protective barrier for your skin. An almond-sized amount of goat’s milk lotion once or twice a day as the final step in a healthy skincare routine can lock in vital nutrients to make your skin look and feel soft and dewy.
Lactic acid found in goat’s milk is a natural AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), which can gently rid your skin of dead cells. Gentle exfoliation is a key part of maintaining healthy skin. Exfoliating too often with scrubs can cause irritation for those with sensitive or dry skin. Goat’s milk soap and lotion can provide the benefits of exfoliation without any redness or external irritations.
The fatty nature of goat’s milk easily penetrates the skin and replenishes, unlike some soaps which can strip your skin of natural protective oils and leave you with a feeling of tightness – a sign that the protective barrier of your skin has been worn down, leaving you open for a variety of skin ailments.
As you can see, adding goat’s milk into your diet or beauty/skincare regimen can have amazing results, not only for the appearance of the skin but for your overall health and immune resistance.
