Let your mind travel back through time, way back, to say 1000 BC, and you’ll see why Cleopatra had more beautiful skin than most of us today.
Long before the reign of Cleopatra, Egyptians had already developed the first natural skin care treatment for dry skin. The formula included raw eggs, olive oil, and raw non-pasteurized milk. No wonder they were a so much healthier than we have become, it was a society that fulfilled it’s purpose.
The use of toxic chemicals in the name of skin care is a relatively recent phenomenon, whether in the name of profit or imprudence. The first departure from natural skin care treatments was due to the dark ages of ignorance, the use of lead paint to achieve a pale face for example. The ‘side’ effect of this treatment was loose teeth and pitted skin. What’s even more weird is that even after the hair and teeth fell out, it was simply made up for with mouse hair eyebrows and a cheek paste of cork to resurface the skin. Sounds oddly familiar doesn’t it, except now it’s mind-numbing rat poison and unpronounceable ingredients?
Have we come full circle, and can now return to our centre? I certainly hope so. Recently I had the good fortune to discover for myself how the enzymatic action of yogurt works to protect and nourish the skin. The natural enzymes, probiotics, and live elements of natural milk absorb instantly to pump up and moisturize the skin. Of course, milk from grass-grazing cows contains all the vitamins and minerals found in wheat grass juice as long as it’s non-pasteruized. Raw yogurt an anti-inflammatory effect, calming and balancing the pH for a healthy looking “Cleopatra” complexion. Butter in it’s natural state (pasteurized butter can be irritating) is the most effective lotion for restoring skin to it’s original health.
Raw milk is good for your skin according to Dr. Perricone. “Raw milk is absolutely better for your skin than pasteurized milk. Raw milk contains all the live active enzymes and cultures to help boost your immune system and digest milk properly. Plus, it contains absorbable calcium and vitamin D. Once milk is pasteurized, it becomes much harder to digest because the digestive enzymes present are no longer functional. Also the calcium in milk gets ionized under the pasteurization process and is no longer absorbed or assimilated.” Topical application is an alternative for those with lactose intolerance, although you may find you can easily tolerate milk in it’s natural state. Inside and out, pH fitness becomes so simple when it fits the body.
