HOW Facial Products Using Cultured Goat Milk Products Benefits YOU?

 

Facials provide a number of benefits for your skin, depending upon the ingredients used. They can help stimulate the skin and increase circulation, help prevent wrinkles, and tone and moisturize skin. Alternatively, help remove excess oils.

 

Skin is classified as the largest organ of the body, and as such, requires nourishment just like our internal organs. While the food we eat provides nutrients for the skin, as well as the rest of the body, our skin also has the ability to absorb substances directly.

 

Homemade facials are a great way to pamper yourself  and your skin without the high price of a spa. Facials can range from the application of a single ingredient, to complex combinations of ingredients applied in sequence. As  goat milk is rich in protein, fat, vitamins and minerals, therefore, it  is just as healthy for you on the outside as it is on the inside.

 

The cultured goat milk products, like yogurt, sour cream and buttermilk, have the added benefit of lactic acid, which is one of the Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that are found in many commercial beauty and anti-aging creams and lotions. Alpha hydroxy acids help remove the dead surface-layer skin cells, revealing newer, younger-looking cells and its ability to combat acne. AHAs have been used for centuries for skin rejuvenation.

  1. Sour cream can usually be substituted for yogurt. When trying this, reduce the amount of thickeners, such as corn starch or powdered milk, as the sour cream is usually a good bit thicker than yogurt.
  2. Most fruits make great additions to facials. Pineapple, papaya, bananas and grapes are commonly used. Orange juice and lemon juice contain vitamin C, but use carefully, as these may irritate some skin types.
  3. Add in crushed fresh herbs, like peppermint, catnip, or chamomile, or use tea from the herbs as the liquid portion of the facial.
