Every season has its pros and con, and with winters comes dry skin and dry scalp, which requires extra care. So here is a wonder ingredient for your winter problems – Yogurt!!!

The good fat in yogurt naturally nourishes, prevents drying during winter and the mild acids bleach tan. Yogurt also balances pH levels on skin & hair and does alot good if applied frequently.

1)      Pure and Simple Yogurt for hair:-  You can simply use yogurt on the hair and scalp few minutes before taking bath. Yogurt is an excellent product for dry hair or y0ou can beat yogurt and then apply on the hair and scalp. Leave for 30-45 minutes and then rinse of with lukewarm water and use mild shampoo.

2)      Yogurt with honey- Yogurt and honey is a perfect for winter care! Beat yogurt and add few drops of honey to it. Apply on the hair and leave for 30-45 minutes. This conditions the hair and stores the moisture therefore preventing the hair from becoming dry. You can also apply the same mixture on your face and leave it for 10-15 mins. It boosts your skin moisture and gives you instant glow.

3)      Body Scrub- To a bowl of yogurt, add a teaspoon of powdered sugar, turmeric and aloe vera gel. Turmeric works like an antiseptic, sugar helps in scrubbing and removing the dead skin cells. Aloe vera soothes skin. Even oatmeal powder can be added to yogurt and used as a scrub.

Apply the yogurt recipe all over the body (specially arms & legs are more visible). The homemade facepack should be massaged on knees and elbows to lighten up the skin and prevent roughness.

7)      Yogurt and Egg – Beat and egg while whipping yogurt and then apply on the hair. The best way to apply this yogurt mask is by parting hair lines an applying on the exposed scalp. This way, you apply the mask properly. Leave it for an hour and then rinse off with cold water and use a mild shampoo.
