Product: Plain Greek Yogurt / Utensils: Spoon
I’ve tried many high end face products and I have to say I never thought something as simple and cheap as YOGURT would be one of my favorites. Nobody likes breakouts and this has definitely helped me control mine. And on top of it all, you can get a whole tub of your homemade moisturizing yogurt face mask for under $5! All you need:
-One spoonful from the fridge and spread it evenly across your whole face with hands.
-Leave on for about 30-40 minutes.
-Wash off completely with water.
When applied to the skin, a velvety yogurt face mask will help moisturize, fight acne, prevent premature aging, relieve sunburn, and reduce discoloration. It’s an all-around beauty multitasker. My skin is always left feeling so soft, bright and silky!
How it works: Okay.. I’m about to get a little technical on you guys. Greek Yogurt is actually a probiotic (make sure it says “probiotic” on it when you buy it). Your body needs “good” bacteria to fight off the “bad” bacteria. It’s full of protein and vitamin D. Yogurt contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, that dissolves dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliation not only helps to create a natural glow and prevent breakouts, but works to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Ps. You can also try this product with honey mixed in for more exfoliation. I usually do this a couple times a week before bed. Try it and let me know how it works! xo
