2nd Food for your skin - Goat Milk

by Beth Hopkins August 01, 2014

 

Goat's milk cheese is delicious, but it turns out that goat milk is also a treat for your skin. It contains lactic acid, a natural exfoliant, as well as vitamins A and E. An abundance of triglycerides act to hydrate the skin and keep moisture in.

But there's a secret ingredient to give an added boost to the moisturizing quotient: caprylic acid.

This fatty acid creates a lower pH in the skin's mantle, the barrier that protects us from bacteria and infection. Balancing alkalinity in this way makes it easier for the skin to absorb all the nutrients, so they don't just end up sitting on top of the epidermis [source: Goldfaden].

Our last beauty food: Keep it whole to get fantastic overall results.
