Soaking in a milk bath, turning into literal gold, is the ultimate luxury that is a literal requisite of self-love. Soaking in a milk bath takes time, time set aside to be undisrupted and in a space of tranquility. Soaking in a milk bath takes effort; preparation mainly – and let one not forget, cleaning up the residuum. Soaking in a milk bath can also resolve skin discoloration issues from stubborn scars, an uneven complexion, and leave your skin irresistibly soft.
I love milk baths of all kinds: coconut milk baths, almond milk baths, and even rice milk baths.. but one that has always left me with flawless skin was a goat milk bath. It reigns supreme, and after a few months of ditching all other milk baths behind to revel in the benefits of goat milk, I want to share it with you!
Goat Milk has too many benefits for the skin, as it contains natural fats, selenium, and lactic acid. And, not surprisingly so, it’s the closest to our skin’s PH.
Benefits of a goat Milk Bath:
- Calming and soothing to the skin, helping to reduce inflammation, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots.
- It’s a natural exfoliant, providing you with brighter skin.
- Deep cleanses the skin gently without leaving your skin feeling tight, dry, or itchy.
- Deeply moisturizes and hydrates the skin, leaving it soft and smooth to the touch.
- Helps with skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis!
