Yogurt For Skin! 7 DIY Masks for a Healthy Glowing Skin

We grew up reading about the nutritional values of Yogurt. While Yogurt is rich in its nutritional components, it is also one of the best ingredients to use for healthy and glowing skin. You can directly apply yogurt on your face and call it a mask, but it works wonders when added with goodies like honey, cinnamon, turmeric, and others.

What makes yogurt so special?

It is packed with the goodness of vitamins and minerals: B12, B2, B5, Calcium, Lactic acid, Zinc, and Alpha hydroxy acids.
