Kefir & Beauty

It's quite interesting to look back in history and to read that the beautiful queen of Egypt bathed in fermented milk and that her skin was so beautiful that we still talk about it.

We learn from history for the present and the future. If rich people can afford something that others cannot then it's not much help for someone who has only a little pocket money.
With fermented milk every one can afford a beauty treatment for the skin which is much, much cheaper than a commercial skin product, where advertising and packaging is the highest part of the price you pay. The product itself costs, in most cases, only a very small percentage of the retail price.

Kefir puts the best skin care in everyone's hands.

The following selection of recipes give a guidance how to make your own skin care products with Kefir. These recipes will be updated once a week.

2 1/2 tablespoons elderflower infusion.
