Sure, you’re getting your probiotics by eating yogurt. But are you using it on your skin as well? You should! Yogurt is filled with protein, vitamin D, and calcium, all of which your skin loves. Moreover, its lactic acid (read: alpha hydroxy acid) dissolves dead skin cells, which works both as an exfoliant and a weapon against fine lines and wrinkles. There are plenty of ways to use yogurt in beauty recipes–plus you won’t be sorry you bought the bigger container ever again!
