Surprising uses for probiotic yogurt you should know
Yogurt isn’t just for breakfast you know. Cultures found in probiotic yogurt produce lactic acid which gives it health boosting benefits. This super rich food, widely acclaimed in the health and beauty industry has lots of fun uses that will leave you feeling beautiful in and out.
Once you explore some of these fun-tasty-c uses for yogurt, it will never miss in your refrigerator.
As a teeth whitener: Are the effects of tea and coffee taking a toll on your teeth? If you and your tea flask or coffee maker are staying together until death, prepare yourself for yellow teeth for a long time to come. However, you can correct this with a costly visit to the dentist every so often. Alternatively, you can rub a little yogurt on your teeth every day and leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing. The phosphorous and calcium will make your teeth pearly white in a fortnight.
As a facial: Probiotic yogurt is well tolerated by sensitive skin due to lactic acid, a mild Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). AHAs are commonly found in anti-ageing products and in chemical peels at the dermatologist or spa. Yogurt will cleanse your skin and tighten your pores while giving you an even skin tone. For the best results, apply a layer of yogurt on your face and neck and leave on for 20 minutes every day. Rinse with lukewarm water. Tuti probiotic yogurt is greatly recommended. It not only gives you the benefits of yogurt, the aloe vera component in every cup will refresh and heal your skin, leaving it visibly smoother. Tuti probiotic yogurt makes for a great moisturiser; it fights acne, reduces signs of ageing and is utterly delicious.
You can make an exfoliating scrub by mixing yogurt with two spoons of sugar and a face mask by mixing yogurt with one tablespoon of honey and olive oil. This face mask is incredibly useful on chapped hands too! Your hands will be as smooth as a baby’s bottom; there will be no more rough handshakes or high fives.
As edible paint: Add food colouring to yogurt to make finger paint for your kids’ artwork and crafts. It’s safe to ingest if your kids get a little curious and want to find out how colour green tastes like.
As a sunburn antidote: So you stayed out in the sun too long and your skin itches and burns to no end. The zinc in yogurt will soothe your skin. Dab some yogurt onto your skin and leave on for 20 minutes then rinse off with cold water.
As a diarrhoea reliever: Yogurt cultures produce bacteriocins which restore normal intestinal bacteria. This is especially helpful in instances where antibiotics have stripped your intestines of considerable amounts of bacteria. Did you know that giving your infant yogurt formula will relieve persistent diarrhoea? When you’re taking antibiotics, take some yogurt 2 hours after medication.
As an antidote to yeast infections: Vaginal yeast infections are common in women of childbearing age. One of the best ways to keep this infection at bay is to take yogurt as often as possible. This superfood will help maintain the correct pH and healthy bacteria in the vagina. Daily intake of probiotic yogurt leads to a 3 fold decrease in yeast infections.
As a hair conditioner: Say goodbye to bad hair days with a cup of yogurt. Apply it to your wet hair and leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing. It will soothe your scalp and leave your hair silky soft and shiny.
