Why I Love Using Goat's Milk On my Skin

I know I'm biased, but I think goat's milk makes a great skin care ingredient!  Luckily, there are a lot of folks who'll agree with me, so I don't seem like a complete nut.

I love the stuff!  I even -- gasp! -- drink it.  (Contrary to what many dairy goat people will tell you, it doesn’t taste like cow milk, but it still tastes good.)

But one of my favorite things to do is use it in my skin care products.  It really is good for your skin.

It’s soothing and gentle.  This means even those with sensitive or problem skin (acne, eczema, psoriasis) can use it without irritation.  In fact, goat’s milk products are usually much gentler than other products.

It’s high in vitamins and minerals.  Face it, most commercial skin care products are filled with chemicals and not-so-nice stuff (take a look at SaferCosmetics.org to see what I mean).  When goat’s milk is the base of your skin care, you’re getting lots of vitamins and minerals instead of all the yucky stuff.  That’s fabulous for your skin.

Goat’s milk contains lactic acid.  Lactic acid is a big deal in the beauty industry.  It rejuvenates the skin.  Studies have shown that regular use of lactic acid can help prevent and reverse signs of aging.  Yay!

Add goat’s milk into your natural skin care routine.  Try mixing fresh goat’s milk into any homemade mask you whip up (a mask of finely ground oatmeal and goat’s milk is divine.)

You can also use goat’s milk soap.  It makes the most wonderful, gentle cleansing soap.  And you can use it on both your face and body.  (See what I did there?  Shameless plug – but if it worked for you, pop on over to www.FarmGirlSoapCo.com and see what soaps I have for sale.)
