Besides being tasty, yogurt aides digestion and may even help you feel fuller without adding tons of calories. As far as beauty goes, eating yogurt is beneficial for hair and nails because of the protein it contains. It also has zinc, which is great for calming down inflammation and healing skin.
The healthy snack also contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that helps to exfoliate and boost collagen production. Another healthy snack? The orange. Besides the fact that it's chock full of vitamin C, it has AHAs, too. Put these two treats together, and you've got a soothing natural exfoliating mask that's both easy and cheap.
Here's what you'll need to make your own orange yogurt mask:
- Approximately one tablespoon of yogurt. I prefer a thicker variety like Greek style.
- Juice from about one fourth of an orange or a splash of orange juice.
- Mix together yogurt and orange. Then, spread evenly on your face. Rinse after about five to ten minutes. Instant rejuvenation.
