I use a greek yogurt to brighten, mosturize and tone my face.
Gosh, it does wonders!
I love anything that would brighten up my face!
This mask works so much better like this:
2-3 squeezes of lemon
This mask is just amazing!
Honey to moisturize and strawberries for anti-oxidants
Yogurt is really good for your face, hair and body. (plain/greek yogurt)
It can help you fight against acne, prevent premature aging, it gets rid of dead skins and tightens pores, can help discoloration and if you have a sunburn just apply yogurt.
Another face mask:
Table spoon of olive oil

Wow, I am late on this bandwagon. I eat Greek yogurt everyday for breakfast, so I had a tub in my fridge. I am acne-prone, with generally 2-3 active zits, and plenty of old blemish marks. Began using this about ten days ago at least once daily ( I work weird hours so I usually have time for morning and night), and I am thrilled. I mix 1 tsp full fat Greek yogurt with a drizzle (1/2 tsp) honey and a slight squeeze of lemon and I have not had any new blemishes. It is very moisturizing, leaving your skin silky smooth. I guess I should note I leave it on about 10 minutes then rinse off.
I think the key with this for me is that the acid in the yogurt and lemon exfoliate without any irritation. Irritation is what breaks me out. It has removed most of the redness in my face. I don't need a moisturizer after this, and I am generally pretty dry.
I am going to continue with this and see what happens. I really want to emphasize the point that irritation (harsh scrubs!!) facilitates the development of acne on a lot of folks, and non-irritating exfoliation has been the key for me, a nearly 15 year sufferer of acne, to even close to clear skin. Ditch your apricot scrubs and try it. Cheap as Dale too.

My skin has been very dry as us, Canadians, have had an extra harsh winter this year and also experienced a breakout of blackheads and closed pores after I attempted the Oil Cleansing Method.
It's my fourth week of using Yogurt as a daily facial mask, I mix 1 tbsp of yogurt with 1 tsp of oatmeal and 1 tsp of white rice flour. This combination has worked wonders in evening out my skin tone as well as improving the texture of my skin. I leave it on for 30 minutes nightly before bed.
I have to admit though, I was about to abandon the whole thing 2 weeks into it as my skin got worse, there were more bumps on my skin and I started to get new pimples but I kept at it and now I realize, my skin was purging. The purging is still happening BUT the pimples seem to go away quietly and I am seeing general improvements. The blackheads are subsiding and the bumps are disappearing and as I mentioned before my skin tone is starting to even out, I'm sure the oatmeal and white rice flour have a lot to do with this as well.
I also had a major cystic acne jerk on my chin for the last couple of months and it was not going away, but slowly but surely, this concoction is finally fading the dark brown ugliness under my skin and bringing the sucker to its head where hopefully it can disappear forever.
I am going to continue this regiment and hopefully continue to see improvements, will try to post the progress at a later time.

I made a yogurt, honey and oatmeal mask last night and it made my face feel so good! I left it on for about 30 minutes and then rinsed it off with warm water followed by cold water to close my pores. I will definitely be trying this again!
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup of dry oats
1 tsp. of honey
This makes a lot so I just put it in the fridge and I'll probably use the remainder today.

God bless yoghurt!I have always thought after great research on cosmetics that natural products(in the fridge/garden etc)work miracles.Here 's my mask-1 teaspoon o f yoghurt,1 tablespoon honey,1 tspoon of fresh lemon juice,1 tspoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of almond oil(if you don't have it,try olive oil).Leave for 15 minutes and clean your face with mild cleanser.It's one of the best masks i 've ever used!

Read the reviews on the yogurt mask, so I tried it on my sensitive, combination skin! Not a good skin reaction! It felt great on my skin, but the next few days I broke out in white heads! I use a BHA, so I should not experience my skin purging of anything! Don't recommend this!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
this def works on ugly huge red acne bumbs! im relieved, mix with oats and leave in for 40 minutes!

Wow! I just tried my first few yogurt masks this week and my skin feels AMAZING! I just slather plain full fat yogurt on my face, leave on for 20-30 minutes and rinse with water and pat dry. I don't wash afterwards so that the residue is left behind on the skin. Even after the first one I felt a noticeable difference; my skin is so soft. Best mask I've ever used! Love it! And so cheap. I buy the generic brand for around $2. Amazing.

I love using organic Greek yogurt as a beauty essential! This stuff makes an awesome deep conditioner for your hair and a must have for your face. I love this and its soo affordable and natural. When I deep condition my kinky hair, it literally melts my tangles apart. The only con is that if you don't wash your hair with shampoo after you rinse it out it will smell awful. But I will keep purchasing.

Its pretty goood!
It makes my skin feel much softer and brighter after the first use :D im definitely going to use it everyweek!
I just wouldnt recommend using it everyday otherwise our skin will get used to it and itll lose its effectiveness so once a week is the best :D
alternate between oatmeal and yoghurt!!

I used to have inflamed cysts on my face (mostly cheeks)but managed to get rid of the inflamation after going for a facial...However, a month later, it all came back and after a while, it got worse.So I stopped cleansing my face as much (minimum once a day though)and threw out my toner and decided to opt for something more natural as most skin care products didnt seem to have any long lasting effects on my skin. Tried this yogurt mask eventually and it was fantastic! My scars are now significantly lighter and I only get one or two pimples whenever my skin breaks out. Seems to work for oily acne prone skin like mine, I guess:).I now use this on alternate days with a bit of lemon juice and cinnamon powder. Using a green tea bag as a toner now and then seem to also help.

I always had really good skin to start with. Only got pimples for about 3 months when I was 13. Apart from that, my skin was always clear.
When I turned 19, my skin flipped out for no reason and I started getting small bumps on my forehead which later transformed into big red pimples. This pimples then spread down to my chin and around my nose (basically, all around my t-zone).
I thought maybe this was due to clogged pores since my t-zone was always oilier than my cheeks. So I went crazy with clay masks, desperately trying to pull out all the impurities that were on my skin but to no avail. In fact, they made my skin irritated and red. I decided to then try out benzoyl peroxide which not only made my skin extremely dry and painful but my pimples also seemed to get worse.
Desperate, I googled natural acne "cures" and saw yogurt come up. I decided, why not? I usually don't eat yogurt at all so I went out and bought a small container of natural tub set yogurt (Paul's Natural Yogurt 200ml -- in case anyone wants to know). I applied the yogurt all over my face after I cleansed my skin at night and waited for it to dry completely (takes about 1 hour for me). I washed my face after the mask dried and saw no noticeable difference but hey, it was my first time. I went to bed and when I woke up the next morning, my skin looked less irritated, some pimples even looked smaller. The difference was minimal but I was quite sure it was working. So, I kept at it for a whole week to see how my skin would pan out. Within a week, my skin has calmed down A WHOLE LOT, and my pimples are definitely much smaller.
To anyone considering a yogurt mask, I would recommend trying it out. Yogurt is dirt cheap so you really have nothing much to lose. I will say though, yogurt will probably take a long time to have any "real" effect on your skin but for me, as long as it didn't irritate my skin any further/didn't burn a hole in my pocket, I was willing to wait.
P.S. Yogurt does leave a film on your face after washing it off but I realise that my skin looks better if I just leave it as is in the morning, as opposed to trying to remove it with my toner. But I can understand how some might find that irritating. I also have started using yogurt as my morning cleanser and it makes my skin really nice and soft :)
Update (16th March 2013):
My skin got really nice again! After sticking to yogurt for about a month, applying it every night, all my acne cleared up. Because I was so happy with this result, I decided that it would be okay to try out other masks straight away. 2 weeks later, my acne started coming back so I'm back to using just yogurt again. It has been 3 nights in a row and my skin is slowly (but surely) starting to clear again. Note to self: always stick with yogurt and if I want to experiment with different masks, do it REALLY slowly.

I find that ANY change, improvement, response or outcome with skin TAKES TIME and sometimes more time than we impatient and instant-gratification-seeking gals like. I use plain, full-fat yogurt on my face several times a week. I wet my face, pat it with a washcloth and slap on a full mask of yogurt. Sometimes I let it dry completely before rinsing, sometimes I use it as a cleanser and wash it off right away. Is my 30s skin perfect, without any pores and fashion-mag flawless--NO. I have a few light freckles and some VERY, VERY FINE lines around my mouth and eyes (no one else can see them BUT I CAN!). I don't look like a photoshopped Nivea ad. What I can say YES to, is that the freckles are getting lighter, the pores smaller and the fine lines duller. Does yogurt reverse the signs of aging? I don't know. But I do know that my skin looks better and is improving because the yogurt is helping it stay in better condition. Also, it looks bright and healthy. Remember, it takes years and years for freckles, dullness, roughness, lines, spots, etc. to emerge on your face, so it is unrealistic to expect anything to work in hours, days, weeks or months. Give yogurt a good 6 months of consistent weekly use before you decide it's not working. My skin was not bad to begin with but I feel 100% that yogurt has made a NOTABLE difference in its vibrancy, clarity and texture. I promise, if you just make it a mindless routine, where you use it as a mask or cleanser every day (or however you want to use it), you will be very pleased with the long-term results. I didn't really notice major changes until 5-6 months after I started using it. Try it, you'll like it! At worst, it can work as a chemical-free cleanser.

I love using yogurt masks! I find it gentle yet it leaves my skin so moisturized and fresh. Lately I've been into mixing full fat greek yogurt, honey and ground up oats, leave until dry and rinse off. It does wonders!

Eh...not really a fan of yogurt masks. I find that it leaves my skin feeling super nice for about...10 minutes and then its like I never even used it. I have tried greek yogurt, regular yogurt, fat free, not fat free and I find that there is literally no difference. Maybe it just doesn't help because I have super dry skin but not really digging it!

This product has really transformed my skin. If it's not working for you, unless you're lactose intolerant, you're using it wrong! How could I possibly use it wrong, you ask? Keep reading. I first started using the yogurt mask on and off, for about a month, I didn't see any result. So I stopped doing it. Then this winter, I had to travel around the country a few times, being stuck in a plane, in that disgusting recirculated air for at least 6 hours at a time, my skin really suffered. I didn't know what to do, so I decided to give the yogurt mask another try. But I was serious about it this time, and I did it everyday for a week. At first it was great, my pimples and red acne scars started to fade. Then I started getting large whiteheads. I wasn't ready to give up on the mask just yet, and I figured maybe I was just doing it too much, maybe my skin was over exfoliated (that's really bad for you too). So I reduced it to every other day, giving my skin one day in between each mask to heal and do its own thing. I'm really glad I did that and didn't just stop using it all together. The key is to find the right balance, maybe you can only do it twice a week, or maybe only once. But seriously, I'm telling you, once you find that sweet spot, the yogurt mask WORKS! It's better than all the expensive brand name stuff out there. Here's how I use it, I couple it with my Clinique 3 step program, and I only use it at night:
step 1 - wash my face with soap
step 2 - apply a thick lay of yogurt on face & neck (I use 9% Greek yogurt) for about an hour, basically until the mask completely dries
step 3 - wash mask off; towel dry
step 4 - toner; moisturizer
Hope this was helpful, and cheers to beautiful skin! :)

When my friend asked me what is my beauty secret, I was reluctant to share that it's yogurt. Yup, not some fancy-pantsy product you find the department store, or some exotic concoction hail from Asia, but it's just the simple run-of-the-mill yogurt. Yogurt has lactic acid which is a mild form of aha. Since i'm too chicken to try real aha, i figure yogurt should be gentle and effective enough, and it is. I use the full-fat yogurt and add in some rice flour (for extra mild exfoliating action) or ground oatmeal to make the yogurt paste thick enough. Other time, i use greek yogurt that already has a thick consistency. I generous slab it on with my plastic brush evenly and thick. Do something else for 30 minutes while letting the magic happen. What prevail is brighter, glowing complexion. Now all my girlfriends/ housemates are addicted to doing the yogurt mask so we always have yogurt mask session together every couple days.

I have acne prone skin with slightly enlarged pores in my t-zone, and a plain yoghurt mask does wonders for my face. I use the plain low fat variety and apply one teaspoon. Keeping it on for an hour has the desired effects of calming inflammation, gently exfoliating acne (lactic acid) and plumping tired skin.
You can put it on zits/pimples for extended periods of time and it will bring the blemish to a head for sure, while minimizing scarring.
I now use this mask in conjunction with other cleansing/moisturizing treatments, maybe once or twice a week. Works well on my hair too, strengthening and straightening my wavy, frizz-prone hair (15 mins will do the trick).

I've been mixing plain Greek yogurt with powdered white clay and using that as a mask (one tbsp. yougurt to one tsp. white clay, applied in a very thick layer and leave on for 1/2 hour or more). It gives great results- hydrated, glowy skin with fewer imperfections. I've also found that this helps calm any inflammation, red or weather affected skin, pimples, etc. Sometimes I'll also throw in a few uncoated aspirins, which I've noticed works very well to keep blackheads in check. Using this mask 1-2 times per week has made a nice difference in the condition of my skin this winter, and I'm pleasantly surprised. I'll continue to mix this up as a mask, the results have been great.

I do yoghurt masks all the time and find them to be mild but effective. My skin is combination and sensitive and yoghurt seems to moisturise my skin while simultaneously reducing pimples and pores.
I use Greek yoghurt as it is thicker and easier to apply and won't drip off as easily. It is also more moisturising. I like to leave it on until it's mostly dry. Sometimes I'll leave it on for more than an hour. My skin is sometimes a little red afterwards, but soon becomes soft and glowing.
Sometimes I'll mix other things in with the yoghurt such as honey, cacao, green tea leaves and lemon juice.
