This is a fabulous treatment to help brighten and zing up your skin. It's particularly effective at banishing ashy skin and boosting radiance. It also works wonders at unclogging horrid pores and clarifying skin prone to congestion & breakouts. Yogurt is a terrific natural skincare ingredient as it's chock full of gorgeous lactic acid which not only acts as a gentle exfoliant but also has a gentle bleaching action making it rather fab at brightening dull skin. Plain old white sugar is also perfect for skin as its not just rich in glycolic acid (just like lactic acid, this is a natural alpha hydroxy acid) to gently banish those horrid dead skin cells but its gentle enough not to tear or damage skin.
Here's What You Need
a teeny little bowl
3 tbsp of natural yogurt
2 tsp of granulated sugar
(nothing fancy just the regular stuff)
Step One - Mix together the yogurt & sugar in a small bowl.
Step Two - Gently massage the mixture into freshly cleansed skin. Massage into the skin on your face and neck with a gentle circular action. Always use a gentle pressure, you want to exfoliate not irritate! Do make sure that you pay particular attention to your chin, nose and jawline (or anywhere where you suffer congested skin). As you massage the mixture into your skin you will notice that the sugar will gently dissolve. Once the mixture has turned smooth, gently rinse off with tepid water.
