Caring for face skin with yoghurt

Yoghurt is not only a good kind of food but also a useful material for nurturing skin at home. 

It contains various necessary nutrients for reviving and developing new skin cells: Zinc, calcium, vitamin B and lactic acid. The latter makes up the main portion in yoghurt, which is used in nurturing skin products. Lactic acid rubs and provides moisture to dry skin, brightens and smooths skin. It also prevents wrinkles and erases existing wrinkles.

You should choose yoghurt without sugar or flavours for nurturing skin to prevent allergies and ulcers.

Benefits of eating yoghurt every day:

– Provides vitamins like A, D, B and minerals like calcium and Zinc, which strengthens skin cells.

– Provides probiotics, which are useful for digestion, helping the body absorb nutrients.

– Provides anti-oxidants, which help reduce wrinkles and prevent early old age.

– Whitening skin thanks to lactic acid.

– Cleaning skin, rubbing off dead skin cells and dust.

– Smoothing skin.

– Reducing red blotches and seborrhoea.
