The Joy of Yogurt

It's past noon already and I'm having a lazy Monday. I'm sitting on my couch staring at my laptop, holding a cup of yogurt. Yes, yogurt has been my company all morning.

But then did you know that yogurt is a beauty food?! Ha, I'm not trying to establish logic with what I'm eating...seriously, it is!

Below are 5 reasons why you should consider stocking yogurt in your shopping cart next time next time you do your grocery shopping!

1. A cup of yogurt will help clear up blemishes. Yes, it's true! It contain zinc making that possible. I usually look for varieties that has less fat and sugar.  And yup, they do exist and the different taste it offers adds to the joy it brings!

2. For menopausal women and even women in general, it has more calcium than milk, which is good news for those who don't care for the taste.

3. Yogurt is often used as a facial mask. And well I would go for the plain one and not flavored varieties, for obvious reasons. LOL Plain yogurt cleanse the skin quite nicely. Just make sure your face is free of makeup when you do this, yogurt is good... but it's goodness is not universal!

4. Yogurt can also be used to soothe an itchy scalp. And while it is soothing the scalp, it is also working on your dandruff. Just apply it on scalp, wrap hair in a towel and then rinse after 15 minutes. Trust me, scalp feels good after.

5. Hands and nails can also benefit from yogurt. How? Simply combine 8 ounces of plain yogurt with lemon juice (one piece will do). Refrigerate it for several hours and then use it massage your hands and nails. Rinse and pat your hands dry and feel the difference. (Keep mixture refrigerated and I normally keep them within 2 weeks only.)

Will you still look at yogurt the same way again?! I don't!
