It’s weird how the strangest things have the potential to give solutions to our problems. Who would have thought that the yogurt besides being good for our diets and calcium intake, it actually has beauty benefits, too? It’s rich in protein, which can improve bones and also hair and nails over time. But, if you’re not into eating it, there are plenty of other ways to benefit.
Hands: Create a sweet soak by adding one tablespoon honey to a cup of plain yogurt. Honey’s a natural humectants, which will help to retain water to keep the skin soft and smooth.
Face: Spread plain yogurt on your face to tighten pores and cleanse your skin before rinsing with lukewarm water after 10 minutes. After all, this treat includes Lactic Acid and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that is milder than other exfoliators but still rejuvenates your skin.
Scalp: Did you know yogurt can be used as a conditioner? Simply bring a container of plain yogurt into the shower, rub the yogurt into your wet hair, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing. The active cultures can relieve an itchy scalp and help combat dandruff in the process.
Feet: If you even have any yogurt left after all the other ideas, you can mix in a half cup of finely ground walnuts and use this as a scrub to improve the texture of your skin, relieving dry patches and calluses. The yogurt adds moisture once again, and the nuts help exfoliate rough spots. P.S. While you’re rubbing it on your feet, you’re treating your hands, too—bonus!
