Sooth your skin naturally with Korres

Updated on March 17, 2016

Greek philosophers and physicians have been prescribing and creating naturally based skincare products for thousands of years. Indeed, Hippocrates is considered the "Father of Modern Medicine". It was Greek physician Galen who first created cold cream 2,000 years ago. Just as the Mediterranean Diet is considered the world's healthiest -- using the bounty of areas like Greece -- so are the naturally based cosmetics from there.

Korres is a Greek family run apothecary business with roots going back into the 19th century! You can find it sold in the US at upscale stores carrying natural products and also, online. I was happy to be hosted to experience it.

People know of the nutritional benefits of strained Greek yogurt: higher protein content, pro-biotics to fight off infections, Vitamin B-12 and more. But did you know those nutrients also are wonderful topically applied to your skin? Dairy products are soothing, with their lean proteins and small amount of fat. For some people, Greek yogurt skincare may the only ones they can use.

Korres makes many yogurt-based skincare items, including makeup removers, skin butter and cleansers. "The Skin Soothers" is a TSA travel ready kit of tubes covering your needs for day and night.

Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser has a rich, creamy consistency with a mild foam. It's not bubble bath foamy, but still gives you that refreshing feeling that's such a crucial element of the washing ritual. It will take off makeup and mascara in one step. It has a delicious, delicate honeysuckle scent. It's marked as being 86.4% natural content.

Greek Yoghurt Cooling Gel is designed for after sun use on face or body. It's a thin gel that does seem to cool down irritations quickly. Don't wait for a sunburn to use it! You may have a hot, itchy feeling after using certain cosmetics or hair dyes. Your face can also feel rashy if you touch it after using harsh chemicals. You'll find yourself reaching for this gel more than you think. They suggest you keep it in your refrigerator for extra cooling power. It's marked as being 84.1% natural content.

Overnight face masks and moisturizers are hot in the beauty world these days! Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial is for all skin types. It's got a rich feeling that stays active. Think of it as coming to your rescue after a long flight or a period of time when you haven't been taking care of yourself. Just put it on and wake up smooth, soft and silky! It's marked as being 95% natural content!

If you want something less rich, but still quite hydrating, Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Moisturizer will fit the bill. It doesn't have any greasy feeling at all, but still has some weight to it. Of course, with the protein in it, you'll still get all the soothing qualities of the other products. It's marked as being 82.8% natural content.
