Approved By You: Yoghurt

Yoghurt is loaded with good bacteria and nutrients. Apart from being a source of lactic acid, it iss also rich in vitamins A, C & E as well as hyaluronic acid. This cool ingredient (pun intended) moisturizes, gently exfoliates and, even calms down irritated skin and scalp, and that’s why it has been Approved By You aka the global beauty community.

Here’s why the community approves of yoghurt:

1. Sensitive skin-friendly – Yoghurt works great for people with sensitive skin who are prone to redness, irritation and occasionally angry skin.

2. Mild exfoliator – Yoghurt is a source of lactic acid which is an AHA, that works to improve the texture of the skin at a surface level. Out of all the AHAs, lactic acid is the mildest of the lot and works well with all skin types.

3. Targets top skin concerns –  Yoghurt is a powerhouse of lactic acid and zinc, and together they target most common skin concerns like dry skin in need of intensive moisture, clogged pores and blemishes.

4. The hair loves it too – Everything that yoghurt does for your skin it does for your hair too. It helps get rid of build-up and even dandruff, it soothes the scalp and adds moisture to your hair.

How is the community using yoghurt:

There aren’t many products with yoghurt as an active ingredient in them, hence most members love whipping yoghurt into a DIY mask for both the skin and hair, sometimes just by itself or by mixing in other ingredients like honey, lemon, turmeric and, oats.
