Healthy Inside/Healthy Outside

Dry Skin, Eczema, Psoriasis Routine


I make my own soap and sell it at a local shop. Being in the hair, skin & nails industry as well as the whole food health industry, I’ve become a fan of natural ingredients rather than chemicals. I was going through some information on making goat’s milk soap and such and I have learned this!

Goat’s milk benefits:
Alpha hydroxy acids-help remove dead skin cells
Vitamin A and more – but A repairs damaged skin tissue, reduces lines, controls acne and offers some psoriasis relief!
Cream – helps boost moisture quality
Minerals – esp. Selenium which helps prevent skin damage

Honey Benefits:
A natural anti-bacterial
Moisturizing, soothing and is a probiotic

Oatmeal benefits:
reduces itching
exfoliates gently
lipids & proteins that naturally moisturize
helps heal psoriasis

You can buy goat’s milk from someone who has goats, from the grocery store or in dry powder form to make a mixture to use on your hair and skin.

My suggestion for hair alone is:

  • 1 cup goat’s milk (if using dried, mix 1-2 ounces with 8 ounces water)
  • 1/4 cup steel cut oats ground in coffee or spice grinder until powdery
  • 1/4- 1/3 cup honey

Mix well and work onto scalp after hair is washed. Leave on for 30-60 minutes, preferably wrapped in plastic and a towel to keep heat and moisture inside.
Do this at least 2 times a week.

For skin, you can use the same mixture amounts and apply if you’re able to stand it under a robe for at least 30 minutes. Or you can increase the amounts and soak in the tub; if you choose the tub, don’t forget to add some peaceful music and low lighting to make it a calming spa-like treat.

I’m going to experiment and try to make a natural bar of soap with goat’s milk, oatmeal and honey. I will post an update when it’s ready in case you would like to purchase some.

*As always, if in doubt about using or eating something that you’re not sure about, seek advice first. What works for one person doesn’t always work for the next.
