The Sunday Tip: Plain Yogurt Facial

| |

Every Sunday I will share an interesting beauty tip that I came across.

While quickly flipping through the book, Fast Beauty: 1000 Quick Fixes, I found a piece about a plain low-fat or nonfat yogurt facial. I have a tub of plain low-fat yogurt in the fridge so I thought why not? ...Until I remembered I had a clay mask on a few hours ago.

The Down Low
Yogurt is packed with calcium and is thus good for your hair and skin. If you have tight and/or dry skin, it will soothe it, soften it, and make it feel silkier. If you have oily skin, it will absorb excess oil.

Massage plain low-fat or nonfat yogurt onto your skin and leave it on for 15 minutes before you rinse it off.

Since I didn't use this regime on myself, I went to good ol' youtube and found someone who did:

Has anyone tried this before? Did it work for you? I think I'll try it next Sunday.
