Yogurt can work wonders to make your skin glow. Here are some fresh and natural beauty tips for your skin using yogurt.
1. For a quick and easy face mask, mix one tablespoon of plain yogurt with a few drops of sesame oil. Apply this on your face and around your neck. Let the pack stay there for 15 minutes before rinsing off. Yogurt creates instant freshness and rejuvenates skin.
2. Lighten skin with yogurt and it works. Heard of Cleopatra’s sour milk baths? The history of yogurt for beauty dates back to her times or even further. Mixing one tablespoon of yogurt with 4 or 5 drops of orange or lemon juice acts as a wonder mask.
