Goat milk 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.
Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief. Water-based soaps can be artificially fortified with vitamins, but most aren’t.
Fat molecules are an important part of making good soap. The cream that is present in goat milk helps boost the moisturizing quality of goat milk soaps. Since many people suffer from dry skin, particularly in the winter months, this is an important quality for soap. Goat Milk Soap will not dry your skin out like many other soaps. This is important because keeping skin naturally moisturized helps keep skin healthy.
Green tea is packed with antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, as well as polyphenols. In addition to that, it also has B vitamins, manganese, folate, magnesium and, of course, caffeine.
Here are some of the most common skin benefits of green tea:
Reduces acne and pimples
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties green helps in calming down problematic skin, including pimples and acne. According to a study in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, “EGCG [the main polyphenol found in green tea] significantly improved acne in an 8-week randomized, split-face, clinical trial, and was well tolerated.”
Helps with dark circles and puffy eyes
Two main ingredients found in green tea, caffeine and tannins, can help reduce puffiness and dark circles. Namely, caffeine and tannins help shrink the blood vessels therefore reducing the swell, and with the help of vitamin K it also diminishes the dark color.
Delays skin aging
Green tea is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols which are known to reverse the aging signs by fighting off free radicals which tend to speed up the aging process. That being said, green tea can also help with sun damaged skin, fine wrinkles, and it can give the skin a healthy glow.
