There is an easy face mask that you can make that uses yogurt for treating acne. It is an easy home remedy for acne that combines the yogurt, which will help to smooth and soften the skin, along with comfrey, which will help to heal the blemishes. It also has honey, which will moisturize, and cosmetic clay that will draw out the impurities of the skin. This method of using yogurt for an acne treatment will leave your skin feeling soft and hopefully blemish free.
Things You'll Need
- Plain yogurt
- dried comfrey leaf
- cosmetic clay
Gather your ingredients to use yogurt for treating acne. You will want to have at least one tablespoon of plain yogurt, preferably low-fat and one tablespoon of dried comfrey leaf. You can find comfrey leaf at health food stores or online at places such as amazon.com. You will also need one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of cosmetic clay.
Grind the comfrey in a food processor or coffee grinder until it is a fine powder, and then mix all of the ingredients for the yogurt acne treatment until it makes a paste.
Wash your face with a mild cleanser and pat dry.
Spread your yogurt acne treatment on your face. Leave it on for at least 15 minutes. While the mask is on, take some time to relax. Lay down and listen to some music or read a good book. Stress can increase acne breakouts, so stress relief can be just as much as a home remedy for acne as using yogurt for treating acne.
Remove the yogurt acne treatment with a warm, wet washcloth. Follow up with a broad spectrum sunscreen moisturizer.
