Sometime last week I asked my brother to buy me some yoghurt when he was coming back from school. I don’t actually like yoghurt but I’ve been trying to eat healthier and decided to give it another chance.
I couldn’t even swallow it 😭. For some reason, this particular one tasted extra disgusting. Long story short this yoghurt was looking at me in my fridge like;
And I decided not to let it go to waste. So I did a quick Google search, got my self acquainted with a few recipes and made sure that it was actually good for my skin, then proceeded to mix up the face mask.
Yoghurt Face Mask Recipe
For this mask I used;
2 tablespoons of fresh yoghurt
1 teaspoon of honey
You can change the proportions as you’d like and add ingredients to it as well. In DIY you can definitely do what you like.
NOTE: Please make sure you use a yoghurt that has active culture.
However they word it, so far as you see the word ‘culture’ you’re good 👍🏽. Preferably use a plain/unflavored yoghurt.
I used Farm Pride yoghurt for this mask
After washing my face I applied the yoghurt mixture and left it for about 15 minutes.
The mask went on pretty smoothly and eventually began to dry up.
15 minutes later I washed it off and my face felt so alive! It honestly felt so smooth and soft! I think I’m gonna officially add it to my skincare routine.
If you’re looking for an in expensive way to treat your skin I definitely think you should try it.
Benefits of Yoghurt for skin
