Yes, in addition to health benefits, yogurt is also beneficial for your skin
What exactly is yogurt?
Yogurt is a dairy product containing a bundle of nutrients such as – vitamins A, B2, B12, and E, proteins, calcium, zinc, potassium, fatty acids and magnesium.
Yogurt includes healthy bacteria, offering a number of health benefits in addition to those provided by raw milk.
Hydrates and cures dry skin:
B vitamins are abundant in yogurt, which help to moisturize, hydrate, and repair dry skin. Vitamin B2 also functions as an antioxidant, preventing skin dryness.
Yogurt also has calcium which helps to promote dry skin repair.
Prevents early signs of aging:
Lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid found in yogurt, is a great natural ingredient. Its exfoliating properties aid in the gradual disappearance of creases and wrinkles. Yogurt is high in protein, a food that gives your body the building blocks it needs to make collagen. As a result, it’s yet another wrinkle-busting food.
Protects against sun damage:
High zinc concentration in yogurt works as an anti-inflammatory agent that appears to be really effective in case of sun damage such as skin parchedness. It also aids in the reduction of skin imperfections and the shrinking of pores.
Yogurt combats acne and pimples:
Yogurt has antifungal and antibacterial properties that can aid in the treatment of acne. Yogurt’s probiotics also play an effective role in control of acne triggering bacteria, while zinc’s anti-inflammatory qualities aid in the reduction of inflammation leading to acne and skin flushing.
