7 Ways To Make Your Own Yogurt Face Mask At Home

Most of us grew up knowing about the nutritional benefits of yogurt. You’ve probably even incorporated it into your diet through smoothies or fruit-laden afternoon snacks. And that’s great, but did you know yogurt can also be applied topically as part of a skin care routine to help you find the youthful skin you’ve been searching for? It’s true!

In this article, SiO Beauty’s skin care experts will tell you all about what makes yogurt so good for your skin. They’ve even put together seven yogurt face mask recipes to help improve the health of your skin...regardless of your skin type. Best of all, they’ll show you a simple-yet-effective way to smooth and plump your skin, encourage collagen growth, and heal and prevent wrinkles while you sleep.

First, though, let’s focus on yogurt and see why it can be so great for your skin.

What Makes Yogurt So Great?

Simply put, it’s packed full of vitamins and minerals like:

  • B12
  • B2
  • B5
  • Calcium
  • Lactic acid
  • Zinc
  • Alpha hydroxy acids

When you eat yogurt, those vitamins and minerals are digested and used by your body to stay healthy. But your skin is often the last stop on the vitamins’ trip through your body. That means that your skin gets just a little bit of the leftovers.


The neat thing about yogurt, and the vitamins and minerals it contains, is that everything is water soluble. “Water what?!” you ask. Water soluble. That means the ingredients are dissolved in water (the whey), and are, therefore, absorbed by your skin from the outside. That’s pretty cool! By applying yogurt directly to your skin, you bypass the whole digestion and distribution process, and put the vitamins and minerals where you need them most.


Now that you know why yogurt is so good, we’re sure you’re wondering, “How can I use it to get great skin?” Here are seven face mask recipes that the experts at SiO Beauty have put together to help you harness the healing power of yogurt.

As fun as making your own yogurt face mask can be, sometimes you need a more powerful way to heal stubborn wrinkles and prevent them from forming again. That’s where the advanced healing of a silicone skin patch comes in.

Get Supercharged Healing By Wearing A Silicone Patch While You Sleep

For supercharged healing and wrinkle prevention, we recommend SiO Beauty’s Lift series of silicone skin patches. These patches are based on the same technology that hospitals and surgeons use to heal stubborn scars and burns. The secret lies in the microclimate that these patches create above the skin. The microclimate pulls moisture through your lower layers of skin, and from the air around the breathable patch, and traps it on the surface. This extra moisture then promotes collagen growth, hydrates dry skin, reduces the signs of aging , and flattens wrinkles.
