Beauty superhero: yogurt

See also

This delectable treat is tasty in smoothies and by itself, but it also works wonders for skin and hair.

Yogurt contains a high level of zinc, which helps treat acne and manages oil levels. It can also heal skin discoloration, such as dark spots, dark circles, and redness caused by acne, irritation, or dryness. Yogurt is a natural moisturizer, leaving skin soft and supple, a perfect remedy for those with dry skin year round or during the cold months as the skin is exposed to harsh environmental factors. Skin will look brighter and healthier after application as well, giving your face that dewy glow even in the wintertime.

Use yogurt as a facial mask by itself or with other natural ingredients, such as extra virgin olive oil or oatmeal, for even more nourishment. Leave it on for 20-25 minutes to let the vitamins absorb into your skin and wash off the mask. After one use, your skin should feel hydrated and you should notice a more even complexion.

Yogurt not only helps the skin but also hair. Applying it to your hair like a facial mask will leave your hair silkier and shinier. It can repair damaged hair caused by product build-up, coloration, dryness, or heated styling. Yogurt strengthens the hair as well minimizing breakage. Like for the skin, it also maintains oil levels, which prevents hair from looking greasy even on the second day.

Plain, organic, low fat yogurt is the best choice because you do not absorb the excess oils from fat and it is the most natural and healthy. It is definitely a go-to, cheap product to use in your beauty regimen.
