1. Adding Moisture

The creamy texture of yogurt is thought to help lock in moisture in the skin. In-vitro and in-vivo studies in 2011 also supported the effects of this yogurt mask.

2. Brighten the skin

The same study from 2011 also showed that yogurt masks could potentially lighten skin.

3. Even skin tone

According to a 2015 study, it was said that yogurt can help even out skin tone with the help of its natural probiotics.

This will help those of you who have black spots, acne scars, age spots or sun damage, or uneven skin tone.

4. Protect from UV rays

Another study also conducted in 2015 said that yogurt can help minimize the effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun.

Yogurt is thought to help create a free radical barrier on the skin, which can reduce the risk of age spots and sun wrinkles.

5. Increase Elasticity

A reliable source of 2011 research also shows that yogurt can increase skin elasticity. As we age, the skin naturally loses collagen.

Yogurt face masks can help restore elasticity as well as improve the overall appearance of the skin.

6. Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles

According to a 2015 study, the probiotics in yogurt can help protect the face from signs of aging such as the appearance of raised fine lines.

7. Against Acne

Probiotics are also thought to help fight the P. acnes bacteria, a major cause of inflammatory acne. According to the same study from 2015, probiotics reduce overall inflammation, which can relieve acne and help prevent future breakouts.

8. Treating Skin Inflammation

The same anti-inflammatory effects found in probiotics are thought to help treat other inflammatory skin conditions. These include rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.

9. Treating Skin Infections

Yogurt is also claimed to have microbial properties that can treat skin infections. However, yogurt masks should not be used on infected or damaged skin without prior doctor’s approval.

After knowing the benefits, maybe you want to try it right away at home. If you want to try a yogurt face mask, it’s important to understand the possible risks as well as other ingredients that can be mixed.

Some ingredients that can be mixed with yogurt include honey for dry and irritated skin. Next there is turmeric for psoriasis or acne (due to its anti-inflammatory effect).

Finally, there is aloe vera to moisturize and soothe the skin from problems such as irritation, acne, psoriasis, oily skin, and burns. However, it would be better to consult a dermatologist if you want to try using a yogurt mask.

Especially for people who have skin problems. If you have a milk allergy, it is important to avoid traditional yogurt and choose goat’s milk or plant-based formula instead. []
