Beauty Dictionary: Y for Yogurt

More commonly known as a healthy snack, yogurt contains so many nutrients that can benefit our skin when applied externally. Zinc, lactic acid, calcium and vitamin B are some of the widely known ingredients in yogurt. It is one of the key constituents of various DIY recipes.

Using yogurt in face masks and cleansers help to gently exfoliate the skin, due to the presence of lactic acid, which is a natural alpha hydroxyl acid. Use it in a brightening treatment or even to cure sunburns. This multi-purpose ingredient also cares for your hair, combating itchiness and removing frizz. Go one step further and get some highlights by mixing lemon juice and yogurt and leaving it on your hair for 30 minutes. Make sure to use unsweetened and plain yogurt, to prevent irritation of the skin and ones with high levels of fat.
