3 Reasons You Should Add Donkey Milk To Your Daily Beauty Routine
I know what you are thinking, why in the world would you add donkey milk to your daily beauty routine?
Even if you have heard of the benefits of milk for beauty, you may be wondering what makes donkey milk so special? One of the many reasons, is that donkey milk has been used for beauty for thousands of years.
Cleopatra, the Queen of Ancient Egypt was known for her beauty, and Queen Cleopatra turned to donkey milk to maintain her coveted youth and beauty. You may recall hearing the legend that she required 700 donkeys to produce enough donkey’s milk to accommodate her daily baths.
A Beauty Secret Of Many Names
Other than being referred to as donkey milk, sometimes it is referred to as asses’ milk - or in French Lait d'Anesse. Regardless of what it is called, there are many reasons to add donkey’s milk to your daily routine.
Beauty Benefit #1 - Antioxidant and Nutrient Rich
Sometimes we forget that our skin is our body’s largest organ. That being the case, we must nourish our skin both internally and externally. Instead of turning to chemical-filled skincare and beauty products, try 100% natural donkey milk, which is packed full of powerful antioxidants and nutrients. These include: essential vitamins such as vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, D, C, as well as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc.
Properly nourished skin simply looks younger and healthier. Donkey’s milk is gentle enough that it can be used from head to toe, and is especially effective to cleanse the delicate skin of babies, or adults with sensitive skin. It is also a fragrance-free beauty product, making a French Lait d'Anesse soap a simple way to enjoy its beauty benefits on a daily basis.
Beauty Benefit #2 - Powerful Anti-Aging and Healing Properties
Donkey’s milk also contains essential fatty acids, that when regularly applied to your skin will provide you with powerful anti-aging and healing properties.
The fatty acids will help to erase and lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and will work to actually regenerate damaged skin. Donkey milk is also effective in healing and soothing minor skin abrasions.
Beauty Benefit #3 - Softens And Smooths
Donkey milk is both a gentle exfoliator, and a powerful moisturiser. What this means is that with consistent use, your skin will soften and smooth, as well as feel firmer and tighter.
Don’t forget that donkey’s milk cleanses while it softens and smooths, making it a very versatile beauty product.
How Can You Find Donkey’s Milk To Add To Your Skincare And Beauty Routine?
While it is not impossible, it is fair to say that it is not easy to come by fresh donkey’s milk. Even if you can, it would be difficult to keep enough fresh milk on hand for your beauty needs. On top of that, it is a liquid, making it difficult to apply to your skin. The good news is that you can easily find beauty products made with this powerful beautifier, such our handmade Lait d'Anesse soap. Also be on the lookout for other beauty products made with donkey milk, such as hand and body lotions.
If donkey’s milk is good fit for Queen Cleopatra, then it is good fit for you too! Just make sure that whichever products you choose, they are not ridden with chemicals as they overpower the natural benefits you wish to achieve.
