Benefits of Cleaning Your Face With Goat Milk

We have an entire post on goat milk benefits if you want to learn more about the power of goat milk for making your skin look younger and more rejuvenated (along with lots of other healthful benefits of goat's milk)! However, we've included a short list of milk skin care benefits for you below. Using goat milk as part of your skincare routine can offer several benefits due to its' natural composition and nourishing properties. Here are some potential benefits of cleaning your face with goat milk:

Is Milk Good for Anti Aging?

Yes! Raw goat milk is.... 1. Moisturizing Goat milk is rich in fatty acids and triglycerides, which are known to be moisturizing and can help keep the skin hydrated. This is beneficial for preventing dryness and maintaining a soft, supple complexion. *PRO TIP*: This is why many people choose to wash their face and body with goat milk soap instead of traditional water-based soaps that can dry your skin out. More on goat milk soap vs. regular soap here. 2. Rich in Vitamins and Minerals Goat milk is a good source of vitamins such as A, B2 (riboflavin), and D, as well as minerals like calcium and selenium. These nutrients contribute to the overall health and vitality of the skin. 3. Contains Anti-inflammatory Properties The anti-inflammatory properties of goat milk may help soothe irritated or sensitive skin. This can also be beneficial for individuals with conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. It can even help to lighten the skin and dark spots.

Is Milk a Good Cleanser?

Again, yes! Raw goat milk is.... 4. A Natural Cleanser Goat milk has natural cleansing properties that can help remove dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin without stripping away its natural oils. This makes it suitable for various skin types, including sensitive skin. 5. Mild on the Skin Goat milk is generally well-tolerated by most skin types, including those with sensitive skin. It is less likely to cause irritation compared to some harsher synthetic ingredients. (Here at Faith Farms, we use absolutely zero synthetic ingredients or chemicals that can be linked to skin conditions and illnesses.) 6. Raw Milk for Acne Goat milk contains natural antibacterial properties, which can be beneficial in preventing acne and maintaining a clearer complexion.

Does Milk Tighten Skin?

Raw goat milk can help the skin appear tighter and firmer because it.... 7. Supports Collagen Production The lactic acid in goat milk promotes the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 🙌🏼

Does Milk Exfoliate Skin?

8. Gentle Exfoliation Yes, goat milk can help exfoliate the skin to some extent due to its content of lactic acid, which is a natural alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). AHAs are known for their exfoliating properties, helping to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and promote a smoother complexion! This exfoliation effect can be helpful in skin conditions such as eczema. Goat milk soaps made with oatmeal can be exceptionally helpful for exfoliation!

Here's how the milk exfoliation process works:

1. Lactic Acid Content As stated above, goat milk contains lactic acid, a type of AHA that is derived from milk sugars. Lactic acid is known for its ability to gently exfoliate the skin by breaking down the bonds that hold dead skin cells together.

2. Mild Exfoliation Unlike some stronger chemical exfoliants, lactic acid is generally considered mild. This makes it suitable for individuals with sensitive skin who may be more prone to irritation from harsher exfoliating agents.

3. Removal of Dead Skin Cells When applied to the skin, the lactic acid in milk helps to loosen and remove dead skin cells from the surface. This process can reveal fresher, more radiant skin underneath.

4. Improved Texture Regular exfoliation with milk can contribute to an improvement in the texture of the skin. It can help smooth rough patches, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and enhance overall skin brightness.

How to Apply Milk on Face

When it comes to applying goat milk on your face, you have two options:
  1. Apply raw milk directly to the face
  2. Use products made with raw goat milk that are designed for skincare

How to Clean Face Directly With Raw Milk


1. Select the Right Milk Choose the type of milk that suits your skin. Whole milk, skim milk, or goat milk are commonly used for skincare. Ensure that the milk is fresh and not spoiled.

2. Perform a Patch Test Before applying milk to your entire face, perform a patch test on a small area of skin to check for any allergic reactions or sensitivities. Wait 24 hours to see if there are any adverse effects.

3. Cleanse Your Face Start with a clean face. Remove any makeup, dirt, or impurities.

4. Prepare a Bowl of Milk Pour a small amount of milk into a bowl. You can use a cotton ball or pad to apply the milk, or you can dip your fingers directly into the bowl for a more hands-on application.

5. Apply Milk to the Face Use a cotton ball, pad, or your fingers to apply the milk evenly to your face. Gently massage the milk onto your skin in circular motions, ensuring even coverage.

6. Focus on Problem Areas If you have specific skin concerns, such as dry patches or areas prone to acne, you can pay extra attention to these areas during application.

7. Leave it on or Rinse Off After applying the milk, you can choose to leave it on for a set period (e.g., 10-15 minutes) to allow the skin to absorb its nutrients. Alternatively, you can rinse it off immediately. This depends on personal preference and skin tolerance.

8. Rinse with Water If you decide to rinse off the milk, use lukewarm water to gently wash your face. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel.

9. Moisturize Follow up with a moisturizer to lock in hydration. This step is especially important if you have dry skin. We also offer 100% natural solid lotion bars that are a great option for skin hydration, naturally.

10. Repeat as Desired You can incorporate milk into your skincare routine as needed—whether it's a daily, weekly, or an occasional treatment.

How to Clean Face With Milk-Based Skincare Products (The Easy Way!)

  1. Wet your hands.
  2. Grab your bar of goat milk soap. (Or your foaming goat milk soap, if that's more your style!)
  3. Lather up.
  4. Wash your face! 👏🏼
  5. Use daily.

Easy as that! This is why we absolutely love making and sharing out goat milk soaps all over the U.S.!
