    Yogurt, which is a food ingredient that is found in every household, has several health benefits. It contains enzymes that boost digestive health and immunity. Yogurt is also a rich source of protein.

    Did you know that yogurt is equally effective when it comes to several beauty concerns? Yes, you read that right. Yogurt, that contains lactic acid, helps in removing dead skin cells, thereby removing blemishes and pigmentation, ultimately brightening the skin. Whereas the zinc and Vitamin B in yogurt help in solving several hair issues like hair fall, frizzy hair etc.


    Yogurt can be combined with other ingredients in order to benefit the skin and hair. Let us see how we can use them in the form of masks for skin and hair.

    Note: The yogurt used for the below masks should be plain and unflavoured.

    Your hair becomes oily when the scalp produces excess oil. If the hair is not maintained properly, dirt and oil build up on the scalp that makes the condition of the hair worse. You can try this simple mask to get rid of oily or greasy hair easily at home.

    How To Prepare?

    In a clean bowl, mix yoghurt, beer, egg and multhani mitti together. Now, cut open a lemon and squeeze the juice in to the bowl. Mix all the ingredients well to form a smooth paste. Dampen your hair and apply this mask on your hair covering the roots and tips of the hair. You can cover the mask with a shower cap to prevent it from oozing out. Leave it on for an hour or so.

    Later rinse it off using a mild, sulfate-free shampoo with normal water.
