Have you ever tried a yoghurt face mask? A real natural cosmetic which you can create quickly in your own home kitchen. By adding nutrient-rich ingredients to the yoghurt base, you can create a truly pure, high quality, nutrient-rich and above all, functional natural cosmetic.
Choosing a yoghurt base
Yoghurt is an excellent base for a face mask. You can use Greek or Turkish full-fat yoghurt to make a yoghurt face mask. Greek yoghurt has more acidic properties than its Turkish counterpart. This is because it contains more lactic acid. Thanks to their thicker consistency and excellent fat content, both yoghurts are excellent as a face mask. If your skin needs more exfoliation, go for the Greek version.
Exfoliate, moisturise and firm
When applied to the skin, yoghurt has been shown to increase and retain moisture. Yoghurt contains, among other things, lactic acid and calcium, which plays an important role in the epidermis. Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that dissolves dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It is a large molecule that does not penetrate deep into the skin. Lactic acid gently loosens and removes the dead and dry surface layer of the skin and stimulates cells to regenerate faster. As a result, skin looks brighter, smoother and younger.
Lactic acid differs from other AHAs in that it helps to improve the skin's moisture balance and retain moisture in the skin. This is why lactic acid is a popular ingredient in many anti-ageing skincare products and it also stimulates collagen production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Yoghurt also contains B vitamins and zinc, as well as antioxidants that inhibit harmful free radical activity.
Green powder in skin care
Green powder is literally a powder ground from green plants. What all green powders have in common is that they are rich in chlorophyll, a leafy green substance, but they are also rich in vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Traditionally, green powder has been consumed internally and has been found to have many of the health benefits of green vegetables. Green alkalises the body and tends to create favourable conditions in the gut for a health-promoting bacterial population.
hey`Mon Super Green blend combines the best green powders in one blend. Wheat and barley raisins, spirulina and chlorella form a leafy green bundle and bring together the best of each other. Wheat and barley vetches, among other things, are rich in beta-carotene, from which retinol is formed on the skin. Chlorella contains the most leafy green of the greens and Spirulina is rich in vitamins, minerals and fatty acids. The Super Green blend also contains green tea extract, whose caffeine acts as an antioxidant when applied to the skin. It also boosts metabolism and works to reduce redness on the face caused by superficial blood vessels.
hey`Mo Super Greens yoghurt face mask
On a trip to the shops, get a jar of yoghurt, honey and a packet of hey`Mon Super Greens blend. In a small bowl, mix about 1 tablespoon of yoghurt with 1 teaspoon of Super Greens powder and add a splash of honey. Mix the ingredients well and apply the mask on the face, for example with a wide make-up brush. Leave on for 20-30 minutes. While waiting for the mask to do it`s magic you can prepare a drink or smoothie with the same Super Greens blend. Natural and effective skin care for internal and external use.
