Did you know yogurt is quite the multitasker? I used to know yogurt as only a digestion aid. Well, it’s more than that. We can use yogurt as a skincare on a daily basis. Yogurt is a dairy beverage obtained from the fermentation process. It contains lactic acid, which is a component in producing chemicals for skin turnover, and the acid content of yogurt is a natural acid that will be effective for reducing the oil clogging from the pores. It has many vitamins and minerals that help to boost the immune system to combat the bacteria. Yogurt also contains important enzymes as a natural moisturizer for the skin, face, and hair. It’s mild, not expensive and also we can find it easily.
1. Yogurt For Mask
Use plain yogurt, the white one without any flavor or added sugar. Put it in your refrigerator and after it’s cold, use 1 – 1,5 spoon of plain yogurt (you can add a few drops of honey if you have dry skin) and apply it all over your face. Apply it evenly onto your face and neck, and leave it on for 15- 20 minutes before rinsing it with warm water. It will give you cooling and tightening effect and help to remove dullness in your skin, therefore your natural glow will come out.
2. Yogurt For Acne and Blemishes
Make sure your face is clean from any makeup and dirt from the day, then dab a little amount of cold plain yogurt on top of your acne and blemishes. Yogurt contains natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and is rich in zinc properties thay may help clear your blemishes and shrink your pores. Rinse it off ater 20-30 minutes.
3. Yogurt For Sunburn
Use plain yogurt instead of toothpaste. Janice Cox, natural beauty expert and author of “Natural Beauty for All Seasons”, recommended that we always keep plain yogurt handy when you’re going on beach vacations. Yogurt helps cool the sunburn. Cover your sunburnt area with plain yogurt, let it sit for about 15 – 20 minutes and rinse it off.
