Elderly skin care is a very important health concern for aging adults. While our skin is generally ignored throughout life unless we have a cut, a rash, an itch, or a burn, etc., Skin is our largest and important organ – adults carry some 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms) and 22 square feet (2 square meters) of it,  and the  skin plays a much bigger role than just holding everything together in one package.

Healthy skin keeps infectious agents from entering the body, synthesizes essential vitamin D from sunlight, manufactures vitamin D for converting calcium into healthy bones and provides our sensation of touch through the various nerves running throughout.

The hallmark of goat milk is its gentleness and nutritive properties in digestion, but those same properties carry over to the skin care products, as well.

Goat milk skin care products are especially suited for caring for the special challenges that aging skin presents.

For cleansing, goat milk soap has the benefits of a lower pH, making it more friendly to the skin’s protective acid mantle, and a high fat content that supplies moisture, while gently removing dirt and dead skin cells.

Goat milk soaps also come in a vast array of combinations that include nourishing herbs and other natural ingredients tailored for specific skincare needs. Read the labels or inquire as to the suitability of particular ingredients for elderly skin care, or for other special skin care needs.

Creams, lotion and body butters made from goat milk are also especially nourishing for elderly skin. The special fat and protein molecules from goat milk, along with an array of vitamins and minerals, are easily absorbed through the skin, providing hydration, a protective moisture barrier, and nourishment for the skin all at the same time.

Isolated rough patches of skin might also benefit from the application of a homemade facial solution containing goat milk yogurt, sour cream or buttermilk. These fermented products contain lactic acid, one of the alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), known for helping to remove dead surface layer skin cells to leave skin smoother.

These goat milk versions of alpha hydroxy acid contain no additional chemicals or preservatives and are not as harsh as commercial products.

Conclusion, it is also vital to nourish skin from the inside out. Proper nutrition is an imperative component in elderly skin care.

As the saying goes, “The proof is in the pudding.”That pudding was made with goat milk, right? Ha Ha Ha!

If you or an elderly loved one suffers from dry, itchy skin, try a cleansing and hydration program based on goat milk. Products are widely available, and come in a range of scents or unscented and added ingredients.

Experiment with different brands and varieties to find one that works best for your special needs.

Of course, homemade products are almost guaranteed to be less irritating and more moisturizing than commercial products, not to mention less expensive!

Remember, for all facials, start with freshly cleansed skin. Then, apply a very warm, moist cloth to the face for a few minutes to open the pores. Apply the facial mixture and leave on for 10-20 minutes. Wash off gently with a warm, wet cloth. Finally, rinse with cool water to close the pores and help retain the nourishing benefits of the facial ingredients.

Cucumber makes this recipe cool and refreshing, and leaves skin feeling smooth, clean and toned. Blend all ingredients thoroughly with  a food processor or blender to ensure a smooth mixture.

  • 1/2 of a small cucumber, seeded
  • 1/2 cup goat yogurt
  • 1-2 tsp. goat milk powder to thicken

More Ideas

Experimenting with homemade facials is a lot of  fun, and no doubt you will find original combination  that are even better than these.  So, get off the beaten path, and make your own recipes! Here are a few more ideas to fuel your thoughts.

  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.

And, remember that skin needs to be nourished from the inside too.

Hence, in addition to using your homemade facials, drink your goat milk every day to give your skin and the rest of your body the protein and other nutrients it needs to look and feel great!

“HOW TO Make Whey Toner?”

Whey is a fantastic product for the skin, as well as for hair care. Whey toner is one of my favorites  for mornings. Make the night before and store in the refrigerator. Use ice-cold over face and eyes for a great way to start the day. Leave on for 5 minutes, then rinse with cool water.

If you already have leftover whey from making cheeses, then this is great! Just use about 1 cup of whey to make the tea as per instructions below. But, if you do not, this recipe is a quick way to make instant whey and toner.

Place the tea bag and the buttermilk in a small, microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high for about 1 minute, or until the buttermilk has separated into “curds and whey,” and is steaming hot, but not boiling.

Strain through a tea strainer into a jar and refrigerate. Use the next morning to make your face feel alive! Additionally, your face will feel incredibly clean, but not dry.
