And You Likely Have It In Your Home Already!
I bet you didn’t know that the BEST face mask you could ever use is likely in your refrigerator right now!
Yogurt contains lactic acid, a natural alpha-hydroxy acid which has been shown to benefit the skin in the following ways:
- Exfoliate and moisturize
- Reduce Fine Lines
- Tighten pores
- Reduce Redness
- Fade Discoloration
- Reduce the appearance of dark circles
- Diminish Puffiness
- Heal Acne
Yogurt also contains calcium which promotes skin renewal and can heal dry skin. It is also high in vitamin B2 (riboflavin), B5 (pantothenic acid) and vitamin B12 (cobalamin), all of which play a role in cell and tissue growth and regeneration which is essential for healthy skin.
Here’s what do:
Simply apply a thick layer of plain organic yogurt to your face and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Wash it off with warm water and then rinse with cold water to close the pores. Pat dry with a soft towel. That’s all! Isn’t that so simple? Do this 3 times a week for maximum benefit. (It’s especially relaxing when taking a nice hot bath at the end of the day!)
Want to enhance the benefits?
Extra moisturizing: Add ½ teaspoon of coconut oil to help nourish dry skin and reduce flaking.
Acne Prone: Add ½ teaspoon of honey, known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties.
Discoloration: Add a few drops of lemon juice to the yogurt. Lemon contains citric acid which possesses skin lightening properties.
And of course don’t forget that yogurt is very healthy to eat! Making this natural beauty cream more than just skin deep!
