Yogurt & Probiotics
The origins of yogurt are not entirely known. In India, yogurt is called “food of the gods”; Persian folklore says Abraham owed his ability to reproduce and live to a ripe old age to his diet of yogurt. Regardless of the myths surrounding this milk and lactic acid based confection, we know it helps control our weight. Yogurt is rich in protein, riboflavin, calcium, B6 and B12; yogurt also contains probiotics, which are “good” bacteria found in yogurt that help balance body functions.
As part of a beauty regime, yogurt moisturizes and provides natural proteins, minerals and vitamins that help to nourish stressed, dry skin. Those of us who believe in DIY natural skincare advocate using facials made with plain yogurt, lemon juice and honey for acne. The acidity of the yogurt helps draw out impurities and excess oil in your skin. According to Dr. Ellen Marmur, associate professor of Dermatology and Genetics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, “there is good and bad bacteria on our skin… if the balance is off-kilter it can result in acne or rosacea.”
There are product lines offering a probiotic approach to skincare. Eminence Organic Skin Care offers Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer for all skin types. Full of natural ingredients, like cucumber, willow bark, yogurt and tea tree, this moisturizer is ideal for all you health fantatics.
These products are favored by celebrities like Alicia Keys, Ryan Gossling and Courtney Cox. Aurelia Probiotic Skincare is a line whose philosophy is all about probiotics in all of their products from moisturizers, toners and exfoliators. And don’t forget the NEW! Dial Greek Yogurt Vanilla Honey Moisturizing and Frozen Yogurt FroYo Body Washes, containing two times the protein skin nourishment of ordinary yogurt.
Whether you have your yogurt for breakfast or as a snack, think about trying this yummy treat for healthful beauty inside and out.
