How to Revive Your Skin with Yogurt This Summer
Yogurt is filled with protein, vitamin D, and calcium, all of which a healthy skin needs. Adding yogurt to your skin care regime nourishes your skin and delays any signs of ageing. Many ancient cultures have been using yogurt for centuries to make the skin supple and radiant. Traditionally in India, people would apply a mix of yogurt and turmeric to give the skin a beautiful glow.
How to Get Rid of Pigmentation
Yogurt has lactic acid, which works well as an exfoliator. It removes the uppermost layer of dead cells, revealing brighter and renewed skin. Hence, Yogurt is of the most often used ingredients in home-made facial masks and other Summer skincare products. When yogurt is applied topically, it increases the moisture content of the treated area. This makes skin more elastic and improves brightness. Consequently, it works as a defense against fine lines and wrinkles. It also promotes the growth of new skin cells and effectively reduces the appearance of pigmentation. Using yogurt even helps in reducing persistent dark circles because it has anti-inflammatory properties, which also help in reducing puffiness. Exposure to the sun in summer damages the skin, resulting in redness and irritation, and because of its cooling properties, yogurt can help heal sunburned areas. Fresh yogurt helps to soothe inflamed skin. The probiotics in yogurt calm the skin by promoting cell-renewal, repairing the lipid barrier in dehydrated skin.
The Best Ingredient for Oily Skin
While essentially good for all skin types, Yogurt infused regime is predominantly beneficial in Summer skincare for oily skin or acne prone skin because its zinc content regulates oil production and works as a mild astringent. It also carries anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Traditionally, Yogurt is considered to be an effective home remedy for fighting acne. Hence, as the leading Ayurvedic brand, Forest Essentials recommends its revitalizing Facial Ubtan Multani Mitti for oily and acne prone skin. Moreover, as acne and pimples can leave behind scars that take a long time to fade, not only does this fine Multani Mitti Ubtan dry out acne, but also helps in removing pigmentation.
