There is a huge comeback being made with DIY homemade beauty care products. This yogurt cleansing lotion, as with most DIY natural products, can be made simply using ingredients you already have in your kitchen. These ingredients are not expensive, and they are very efficient and healthy for your skin.
You will be pleased to know that yogurt holds some incredible benefits for your skin. Not only is it an amazing moisturizer, but it can help to prevent aging as well as fight acne and reduce discoloration. And that’s only a few of the benefits! As with anything, it is best for you to experience it for yourself so you can see what it does for you. Be sure to use organic plain yogurt for this recipe.
Calendula stimulates healing for the skin, and is a powerful antioxidant. It boosts blood flow to your skin cells as well. This naturally tones the skin and reduces wrinkles and age spots, providing fresh, youthful skin. Thyme is a natural anti-fungal and antiseptic, and it carries lovely uplifting properties. It holds Vitamins A and C, along with being mineral rich in iron, copper, and manganese.
Of course, using items from the kitchen is nothing new. Let us not forget our long line of grandmothers – they didn’t have any fancy lotions to take care of their skin. DIY skin care recipes are tried and true methods for getting your skin healthy and glowing by adding strong nutrients. And there are no harsh chemicals to unnecessarily dry out your skin!
You Will Need to Gather the Following:
8 oz filtered or boiled water
1 oz whole yogurt
1/2 tsp dried calendula flowers (ground)
1/2 tsp dried thyme (ground)
Directions for Yogurt Cleansing Lotion:
Combine all the ingredients in a glass jar.
Put the lid on and let it in the fridge for 24 hours.
Take it out and blend the mixture. Your face cleansing lotion is ready!
Place some mixture on a cotton pad and cleanse your face using gentle round and rolling movements until you feel that your skin is smooth, soft, and more hydrated than when you began.
You will then want to rinse any residue with warm water. Be gentle with your skin, this is meant to be some self-pampering time!
Afterwards, you can go ahead and apply your favorite moisturizer.
Enjoy the newest addition to your personal home beauty care collection!
