Yogurt is commonly used in natural face masks and exfoliators for its beneficial skin properties. Yogurt provides fatty acids, beneficial bacteria, and vitamins and minerals, which can soften the skin and provide a glowy, rejuvenated appearance. Yogurt works as an anti-inflammatory which can be beneficial for the beginning stages of a breakout. Yogurt contains a small amount of lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) which can provide a small amount of exfoliation (dissolving dead skin cells). The best yogurt to use is full fat, plain, and organic. Make sure the yogurt contains active live cultures (this should be stated on the ingredient list), particularly strains of lactic acid bacteria or Bifidobacterium, or make your own yogurt!
