      Excellent face masks, I tried d exofoliating mask when my skin was peeling after a sunburn and it worked wonders after just one application. My skin was smooth, flake free and the complexion became clear.

      Nice hub - honey is a great companion to yogurt as a moisturizer, so is coconut oil. All three are great for acne too :)

      Sweet is better because it contains sugar.

      Hi, I will give it a try. I never realized the yogurt you use as a masque should be the sweetened kind. Makes sense, though. Thanks for sharing this.

      nice tips, low fat yogurts are usually used and it is suitable for all types of skin. its a natural cleansing and softening agent.The lactic acid and natural enzymes found in yogurt help tighten and soften your complexion while moisturizing the skin.
