Why Use Yogurt?

Why is yogurt so good to use in your DIY beauty? Well for starters it is a great base for any mask; smooth and creamy yogurt offers a number of great benefits for using on the skin. It works wonders as a natural anti-aging remedy and is great for any type of skin. Yogurt is packed full of wonderful vitamins and minerals that are good for both skin and body health. Below in the table is an outline of some of the benefits yogurt can offer.

I have used yogurt in my daily skin care routine since high school, and it keeps my skin glowing, smooth, and happy. Through the years I have complied a list of some of my favorite go to yogurt based face masks. These masks range from anti-aging to pimple preventing, and never fail to improve my complexion and any skin problems. These four masks last a good while and if used daily greatly improve the look and texture of almost any skin type.

Honey & Yogurt Mask

Both honey and yogurt are great for mature skin. They are both very moisturizing while gently dissolving dead skin to exfoliate. Honey locks in moisture and reduces any redness and the appearance of winkle and fine lines. The yogurt further compliments the anti-aging effects while creating a base that collagen renewal and elasticity. Using this mask daily will reduce appearance of aging and creating a glowing smooth complexion. It also helps to prevent break outs and black heads.
