I have the world's ugliest breakouts all over my nose, only the bottom portion though, There's even this whitehead sticking out from the tip of my nose, and it looks SOOOOO hideous!!! But I did the yogurt facial mask and it works wonders! The blemishes over my nose decreased in size and the zits look about ready to be popped. The smell kinds grossed me out for the 10 minutes the facial mask was on, but it was worth it. After rinsing my face clean, I also noticed a little whitening effect on my skin, probably due to the lactic acid in the yogurt. My skin feels softer and smoother, not at all oily and shiny. It really reduces pore size, one of the main reasons why I tried this mask in the first place. Eating yogurt also has a lot of positive benefits, such as reducing the chances of osteoporosis, a ton of calcium in it, and it's really healthy!! However, I only use the fat free yogurt because the flavored ones might cause more breakouts. It doesn't leave a film behind on my face. But this mask is really recommended for those with oily skin! Girls with dry skin can try this, but don't leave on face for more than 10 minutes, it may do more harm than good. Other than that, yogurt facial masks will always be included into my beauty regimen from this day on. It works like magic!
So, it's been 18 days, and I used the yogurt face mask for a whole week, three times per day, and I would just like to say, my skin is more healthier, more clearer, and less oily. My acne has cleared up by more than 50%, seriously! Now, I feel so much better, and so does my skin. I even apply yogurt to my hair, and the results are fantastic! My hair turned from curly-ish/wavy to more straighter waves, and my highlights are like, popping! I am also running my hands through my hair, it feels soooooo soft!!!!! Yogurt is amazing!!!
I Love this Yogurt mask!! <3 I use Greek Yogurt "Fage" and add turmeric powder and it works great! I been suffering from acne the past 2 yrs and i have tried everything ,,.,believe me, the natural the better ,.,thing is you have to be constant with this natural regimen,., use this yogurt/turmeric mask everyday if you have skin problems, this won't irritate or dry out your skin on the contrary it will keep your skin smoothe ,moisturized, and with a much clearer complexion ,., thing i like about the yogurt is that if you have dry skin it moisturizes your skin and if you have oily skin it gets rid of the excess oil ,.,I have oily skin and the yogurt really controls the excess oils ,.,Yogurt masks keeps the PH balance of your skin . It also contains lactic acid which is good for acne ,scars and wrinkles .I notice i don't have to wear much makeup any more i just use concealer on like four acne scars and just put powder only where i put the concealer.,., Try It! your skin will thank you ^.^
Wow wow wow! Cant praise it enough. It work wonders for dry hair and my scarred skin. I add honey to it and apply both to my hair and face. Since my hair is dry, I leave it on as much as I can but min 1 hour. And since my skin is oily, I leave it on my face for couple of min. It just absolutely wows me everytime I use it.
this mask works for every one except me
every time I use it I found my normal skin oily & after it dries
on my skin I found I dry flakes which it difficult to remove
also do not like the smell
To anyone reading this review,you have to try this! It is a dirt cheap miracle!
After reading countless remedies to reduce my facial redness and minimal scarring on my nose,cheeks and chin i came across this yogurt mask. I also needed a moisturizing mask after over washing my face which left my usually oily skin dry,red and sore. At first i didn't think much of this; a cheap mask with sour smelling yogurt? No thanks. But i was desperate,so i went out and bought a tub of Onken Natural Yogurt (no artificial colors,preservatives or flavors)
First putting it on was very unpleasant. It stung my dry,sore face but after 5 minutes the stinging went away. I left on for 45 minutes then washed off with lukewarm water. The results wasn't dramatic,it had reduced my redness,but only temporarily. It did leave my face glowing though,and left my face a little moisturized.
I woke up and an existing spot i had had reduced so much,but a new one had formed! A big red angry one. I was so dissapointed but i did try again. I washed it off and the redness had gone,the next morning my skin tone was so even and scarring had faded so much! It is making me come out in spots though,but i suspect it is because i had already had clogged pores,it was just cleaning them out therefore forming spots.
it is such a miracle mask,try it and if it doesn't work for you,your not exactly breaking the bank!
I just did my first yogurt mask today using just plain non-fat yogurt and left it on for about 30 minutes because I was afraid this wasn't going to be strong. Boy was I wrong!
After washing it off, my face was bright red, which is pretty siginifcant since I have tan Indian skin. My face occasionally turns slightly pink in some areas if I leave an AHA peel on for a bit too long, but this time I went *red* and on parts of my face that normally never turn pink. My face does not feel raw or overstripped, though, and it never stung while it was on.
tl;dr: The Lactic Acid in here is potent, so watch the timing and don't do this if you plan on going out afterward. :)
This is the best treatment I have found for my acne and I have been on several prescription medications for acne including differin. You need to make sure you buy full fat yogurt, which can be hard to find (Organic and health food stores are more likely to have it). I use the brand Greek Gods. You have to rub it into your face for about a minute and then let it sit for about ten minutes and then wash it off. don't leave it on for too long (more than 30 minutes or so) you will cause facial redness.
Best acne treatment ever. So much better than anything you will ever find in a tube at the drug store. And trust me, I have tried them all.
UPDATE: Yogurt. Yogurt. I've come back to it after a long, transitional road with skin care and have finally found--or so I think--my routine and my HG product combination. While yogurt is not nearly the only thing that I use, it is a vital piece. Because my story is so complex, I'm going to write a review explaining my journey with skincare and what I've done to go basically all natural. Check out my review on aspirin (or aspirin "mask") to read a lengthier story that might help you if you're reading this to begin with!!
I am writing this not as a review, but as more of a disclaimer on the yogurt mask. First and foremost, this is nothing short of a miracle for sensitive skin. It exfoliates, it lightens, it brightens, and it tightens (didn't intend for that rhyming there, haha). While preeeetty much all chemical products that exfoliate are too harsh for my skin, the lactic acid in yogurt is absolutely perfect. Now, here's when the issue comes in-- a LOT of people on here only complain about yogurt because it makes them "break out." It isn't making you break out, it is making you PURGE. I know, I know. I never believed it either. But think about it-- people that use face masks and DON'T break out are the ones with perfect skin anyways. People with trouble skin and clogged pores to begin with are the people that break out after using clay masks, scrubs, and the like. Why? BECAUSE THEIR SKIN IS CLOGGED. When you exfoliate, you uncover the layer of skin over your pores/pimples and expose it to the air, making it more visible and/or the clog come to the surface. I know this because I was there. I tried yogurt for a week, and loved how soft my skin was and how the clear parts glowed. However, I got a few pimples, and some existing ones seemed to get a bit more inflamed. After a week or so, I gave up. Enough, right? No. I didn't exfoliate at all after that. My skin was dry and flaky because I hadn't exfoliated EVER except on patches with a washcloth. I was too scared! Within that time though, my face was clearing up really nicely because I was only washing once a day with honey (a whole different story) and my pores weren't nearly as clogged and open. I came back to the yogurt. Guess what? My skin is THE CLEAREST IT HAS BEEN SINCE HIGH SCHOOL. I am 25. Yogurt has exfoliated gently, softened my skin, lightened my scars, firmed my skin, and has cleared up ANY EXISTING CLOGGED PORES I had because I let it work. Thankfully I didn't have many, so it wasn't a big deal. Even if you do, and you find yourself getting "pimples" from yogurt, they were already there. It is a sign that your skin is renewing itself and getting rid of all the crap that still sits in your pores. Don't give up on yogurt because you have a few new crop up. Give it a genuine 2-3 weeks and I guarantee you'll see results! This product could easily have a 4.8 if it weren't for those who gave up too soon!
I love this face mask!!! I normally eat plain Greek yogurt anyways so this mask is just another way for me to use it. If you are breaking out from this mask, try using ORGANIC Greek yogurt. The hormones in regular yogurt are horrible for your skin and body! I use FAGE 2% Greek Yogurt. You can buy it at Safeway, Whole Foods or pretty much any big chain supermarket. I use a big spoonful of this yogurt straight from the fridge and smear a thick creamy layer onto my face and neck. 20 minutes later, I wash it off with warm water and my skin looks plump and glowy! Yes, it smells gross and can be strong at times but it's definitely worth it! Not to mention how cheap it is! I will use this face mask forever! I think this mask would also be good for a sunburn because it cools down the temperature of your skin.. Try it!
I used Chobani plain Greek yogurt as a face mask. Initial reaction: Wow, it feels SO great on your face! The cool smooth creaminess is delightful. The smell is not so great, but definitely bearable. (Smells like sour- sour cream). I kept it on about 20 min or until it started to dry/crack a little. Then rinsed off with warm water. My face did seem to have a dewy glow, and it felt as though a thin film was left behind. I put my usual face moisturizer on afterwards. The next morning: dewy glow still there. I loved the results so much I started using it every day. After about a week I began breaking out in places that have been under control for years. :( I dropped it from the regimen, but may experiment by doing it less frequently &/or mixing it with honey or oatmeal as others have suggested to see if that makes a difference!
