Healing the skin with milk.

The healing properties of milk have been know throughout history. Legend has it that Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt required 700 lactating donkeys in order to supply the milk for her daily bathing regime. Poppaea, the wife of the Emperor Nero was said to have washed her face with milk seven times daily and required whole troops of donkeys to attend her on her journeys.

François I, King of France in 1515, was advised by his doctor to undergo a donkey milk treatment after he returned from war. He was quoted as saying that the milk bath restored his health. Napoleon’s sister was also said to have enjoyed donkey milk baths, even though milk was very rare and hard to obtain at the time. In the 1600’s the elite bathed regularly in donkey’s milk.

There are also many folk remedies which use milk to help cure anything from cracked heals, sunburn, skin irritations , acne, eczema and psoriasis. Raw milk is rich in B-vitamins, alpha hydroxy acids, calcium and other potent antioxidants which do nourish skin cells.

Goats Milk Soap has proven to be a popular choice as it contains alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. This leaves new cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking. The alpha-hydroxy acids are so effective because they break down the bonds that hold the dead skin cells together. Removing dead skin cells will help many skin conditions by removing irritation. Water-based soaps may use harsh chemical acids to accomplish this, frequently with skin-damaging results.
