Beauty Recipes that soften and revitalize the skin include this
all-time family favorite facial recipe using goats milk shared with us
As Maria describes so eloquently. . .
"DIY goat milk recipes for your skin accomplish so much more than cow's milk ever could hope to do!"
As Maria wholeheartedly advises. . .
Fresh milk has
moisturizing and restorative properties, and fermented milk products
have the benefit of lactic acid that can remove old skin cells and
reveal newer, younger looking skin.
Not all milk is the same, though, and when it comes to making your own facial recipes and natural skin care treatments.
First, goat milk has better moisturizing
abilities due to the nature of its fat and protein structures.
If you've ever smelled goat milk that was old or improperly processed, you know it has a very distinctive odor. (Properly processed goat milk does not smell any different from cow's milk, by the way.)
The unique odor comes from the significantly larger amounts of three medium-chain fatty acids, known as capric, caprylic and caproic acid. Because goat milk has a much larger number of these smaller fat molecules, it is more readily absorbed by the skin.
Goats milk protein structures are also shorter than those of cow's milk. The increased accessibility of the fat and protein from goat milk helps leave skin smooth and supple.
Finally goat milk is rich in vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant and is important to maintaining skin health. Goat milk provides up to 47% more vitamin A than cow's milk.
Furthermore, goat milk contains vitamin A in its final form--ready to use--while cow's milk contains the precursor form, beta-carotene, which our bodies must then convert to vitamin A.

To use the kefir goat cheese as a facial mask, apply to freshly cleansed skin. But, don't just slap the kefir on your face like you're icing a cake! Take time to gently massage it into your skin. And, unlike most facials, you DO want to put this one directly under your eyes.
Let dry completely, rinse with warm water and pat dry. Your face will feel delightfully soft and moisturized.
I like to
use the whey toner in the mornings, ice-cold from the refrigerator.
Just apply with a cotton ball or cleansing pad. Kefir whey was shown in a cosmetics pre-marketing study to also have skin lightening effects, as well as anti-acne effects at higher lactic acid levels.
Although it's not a "scientific" finding, I can tell you that after first using the kefir facial daily for a week, I could see a huge improvement in my skin, and I think you will, too.
I've continued to use these goat's milk natural beauty recipes for over a year now, and I wouldn't even consider using a commercial product anymore.
