We have a small flock of East Friesian Dairy Sheep that we hand milk and from which we make cheese and yoghurt. Sheep milk is superior to other types of milk because it has more vitamins, minerals, protein and butterfat that is cholesterol neutral and easier for humans to digest!
Milk has been used as a beauty aid for thousands of years, improving a variety of skin problems including redness, acne, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. Milk is a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, exfoliator, pore minimizer, and even awesome at soothing sunburn. In historical times, Cleopatra even used to bathe in it!!
Sheep Milk has many Benefits for the Skin:
- Moisturises skin because of the fats in sheep milk, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Brightens skin for a youthful glow. Sheep milk has lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid, which is a gentle and natural skin exfoliant.
- Reduces redness and breakouts because of the anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties found in sheep milk protein.
- Protects & Repairs skin to preserve and improve the youthful appearance of skin. The high concentration of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin E, are awesome antioxidants.
