Yogurt may be a great mid-meal snack, but ever think about putting it on your face? Yogurt is great for cleansing, clarify pores, fighting acne, and moisturizing the skin.  The ingredients in yogurt, including the natural live cultures are powerful for treating skin conditions like eczema and acne.  Yogurt has the ability to act as a power-mask that will also sooth redness and reduce oiliness–basically it helps regulate our skin and create radiance.  Sound too good to be true? Try it!  Skin out of control? Put some yogurt on it! Its lactic-acid helps calm any irritations and even help deal with sunburn. I use this every time  after I am in the sun to help cool my skin.

Yogurt Face Mask :

Measure one cup plain (organic preferable) yogurt and place in a bowl.  Wash face with cleanser and warm water then pat dry.  Using your fingers, spread yogurt all over face and neck area.  Leave for 15-20 minutes then gently rinse face with warm water.  Feel free to repeat this process as needed, daily or weekly.
