Add Yogurt To Your Skin Regime

Posted on: June 3, 2009


A lot of us already know that yogurt is good for our bodies. Yogurt is also known as a beauty food and is a good effective remedy for acne. Yogurt contains lactic acid (an alpha-hydroxy acid) and a number of nutrients that may mildly stimulate collagen production in the skin. It is both a dietary component and a natural remedy that contains numerous antibiotic properties. It has the ability to make your skin smoother, softer and less prone to acne breakouts. Yogurt can also double as a cleanser due to its antifungal properties.

I recommend plain non-fat yogurt because it has because its lighter on the skin and won’t be too overwhelming – especially for combination/oily skin. Normal to dry skin can try low-fat yogurt. I use yogurt with aspirin, since I don’t like the stickiness of honey much. It does make your skin soft and supple.

Some remedies to get you going:

  • Honey, Egg Yolk & Yogurt Mask
    It will exfoliate dead skin cells and gives your skin extra moisture. Safe for the eye area.
    2 Tablespoons of raw, natural honey
    1 Egg Yolk
    2 Tablespoons Plain Yogurt
    Mix everything together and apply all over your face. Leave the mask on for about 30 minutes and rinse off well with warm water.

    or

  • Yogurt and Oatmeal Mask
    2 Tablespoons of Plain Yogurt
    1 Tablespoon of Oatmeal
    1 Tablespoon of Honey
    After washing your face, massage the paste on your skin in a circular motion. Then leave it on for about 2 minutes, then rinse off.

    or

  • Yogurt and Aloe Mask
    1/2 Cup of Plain Yogurt
    2 Tablespoons of Aloe Gel (or a fresh aloe leaf)
    Mix ingredients together to form a paste (using fresh aloe leaf – remove the skin and mash the pulp). After washing your face, apply all over and wait for 3 mintues then rinse off.

    or

  • Yogurt and Orange Juice Whitening Treatment
    1 Tablespoon of Yogurt
    4-5 of Orange Juice
    Mix and apply to your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse off. Use everyday for a month.

Remember that each person is different. What works for one person, may not work for another. Do experiment and test out certain amounts to see what’s good for you.
