No one has perfectly healthy skin all the time. It is indeed unfortunate that we can’t be airbrushed in real life as in the world of Photoshop. Still, it would be disconcerting to walk around with all of us looking the same, something akin to a syfy world.
Reality hits hard for some of us. One example is acne. Acne hits all ages from babies to teens and adults; from farm workers to movie stars and usually without warning. We used to hear things like: “Don’t eat chocolate” and you won’t have acne. What are you insane? “Don’t eat chocolate.” That statement defys all real logic in the lives of most people!
However, It didn’t honestly matter as denying yourself chocolate didn’t really give you clearer skin. Years ago I discovered one thing that did make a difference, natural goat milk soap. Thank goodness I didn’t have to give up chocolate!
WHY OH WHY DO I HAVE ACNE
According to the Mayo Clinic, a highly respected medical resource, “Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil secretions and dead skin cells. If the clogged pore becomes infected with bacteria, inflammation results”. That sounds so gross, and of course it actually is to those dealing with acne.
This chronic inflammatory skin condition is the cause of those embarrassing, ugly, uncomfortable red spots and pimples we experience on our skin surface. We seem to notice them mostly on the face, but acne does not discriminate, and will appear all over the body. This creates a truly deep kick to our self-esteem.
In the past, people did not understand the benefits of skin care. In fact, at one time in history it was thought that taking a bath or washing yourself could result in death. However, today we know about the importance of fighting bacteria and sharing disease by washing with some form of soap. We even know that healthy skin is encouraged with exfoliation and moisturizing. Today, we are educated about this subject of proper skin care by magazines, TV, radio, bill boards, and yes… even on blogs.
UNDERSTANDING SOME BASIC SCIENCE
Science tells us that our cells regenerate every 7 days. That means the new growth pushes the old, dead cells to the top of our skin where it just sits until we knock it off. The knocking off part is called exfoliation.
Our sebaceous glands that reside in our skin follicles at times become over active and will produce an oily sebum that mixes with those dead cells. Together they are bonded like glue and fill the pores creating the white or blackheads of acne.
Moisturizing our skin helps reduce the probability of skin problems. It is important to keep the PH of the skin in a balanced condition. When skin is too dry or oily, problems like acne flare up. Acne can then be stimulated as a result of hormone disruptions and stress.
SALLY GOAT TO THE RESCUE
Back as far as the Egyptian days, it was known that beautiful skin was treated with goat milk. It has been said that Cleopatra would bathe in goat milk to keep herself young and radiant. But, what is so special about goat milk? Let’s look at the amazing properties of this special milk.
One study found that goat milk contains powerful anti-inflammatory molecules called oligosaccharideslt, which fight bacteria such as one can get with acne. It is a good possibility that Cleopatra did not have to struggle with that demon. These fat molecules in goat milk also helps those suffering from dry skin. It is a natural moisture agent. The PH of goat milk is very close to our human skin PH, thus keeping a nice balance.
Another fine quality of goat milk is that it contains alpha-hydroxy acids, otherwise known as lactic acid. This is a natural exfoliant and skin softening agent, a great aid for those suffering from acne.
And for a final plus, goat milk is filled with the amazing vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, that will naturally fight wrinkles. Now I understand that fighting wrinkles has nothing to do with acne, but once the acne is gone, then bye-bye wrinkles!
A CHOICE OF SOLUTIONS
There are so many options when dealing with acne. If you look at any magazine you will find skincare sets, pro products, diets and exercise programs advertised, all purporting to magically whisk the suffering and embarrassment of acne from your life. These can be very expensive and often only hype with no cure.

Natural Goat Milk Soap is made from all natural products such as olive oil and, drum roll please…. GOAT MILK!

Some may consider homemade or handcrafted soaps produced with goat milk an old fashion way of dealing with things such as acne, but it is gentle, full of natural exfoliants and skin softening agents. It can fight the inflammation and bacteria that comes so readily with acne, and is very cost effective. A good choice for anyone.
