Is it okay to say that I have a crush on Greek Yogurt? From drinking as a smoothie to washing my hair with! I do them all with this Greek Yogurt Goodness!
As you all know, Greek Yogurt is very healthy for your body. People are starting to call it a “superfood”. It’s high in protein, calcium, potassium, vitamins and has less sugar than the normal Yogurt. This Greek Yogurt actually isn’t from Greece. I know, it’s kind of confusing but NO not from Greece like its name. It’s the name of the process of how they were made it in the Middle East, where it originally came from. Why do they called Greek Yogurt then? I have no idea! Who cares, right! All we need to know, is that it’s good for us and we should consume it in our daily life.
Besides drinking and eating, you can incorporate Greek Yogurt into your beauty routine. Facial Mask and Body scrubs are the best beauty essentials for the cooler months of the year. Your skin tends to loose its moisture, and to help bring back all the hydration, Greek Yogurt will do a pretty great job on that.
Use Greek Yogurt as your Face Mask!
I used to be a face mask queen when I was a teenager and plain Yogurt was my BFF. Now I’m getting back on track to try and take care of myself so I’m back to my Yogurt routine again. Every morning and night I make my own Greek Yogurt face mask. All you have to do is scoop 1 table spoon into a small bowl. Mix it up a little bit then use your fingers to grab some Yogurt and spread all over your face. To make it less messy, you can use a mask brush (foundation brush will do) to do the job instead of your fingers. Leave the Yogurt on your face for 15 minutes then rinse it off. Now you will feel your face is so soft and your dark spots are getting brighter. You can add honey, fresh mashed strawberry or any other ingredients as you prefer. If you don’t have time to add more stuff, Greek Yogurt will do an amazing job than you’ve ever imagined.
I can tell you here that any plain Yogurts can work fine but I recommend using Greek Yogurt because of it’s richness in protein, its double the amount than normal Yogurts. This will help moisturize your skin even more. I love it because I have super dry skin. Plus all the benefits that every Yogurt can give you, for example, anti-bacterial, mildly exfoliating, prevent premature aging, relieve sunburns, prevent breakouts, diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, you still get all of those benefits from using Greek Yogurt.
My personal recommendation is to go for an organic brand and don’t buy the non- fat one unless you want to eat it too. You should go for the full fat kind to get the most benefits from for soft and healthy skin.
Use Greek Yogurt as your Body Scrub!
Instead of plain Greek Yogurt, you can add scrubbing agents like salt, sugar, corn flour, rice flour, coffee, baking soda or oatmeal.
For me personally, I love to use Greek Yogurt with sugar. I add a little bit of honey and lemon in the mixture also. Sometimes, I add a few drops of essential oils to it too. I try to do this once a week to give some me time to my mind and my body. Like I mentioned above that this Greek Yogurt really makes my skin soft and hydrated. It’s also good if you have sensitive skin like mine. Not only that but It’s natural and the most mildest scrub you can find from your own kitchen.
After you have all of your ingredients ready, it’s time to mix them up for you to ready to use. Wet yourself with warm water to open your pores. Then use the Greek Yogurt scrub, scrubbing from the neck down. If you want to use this mixture for your face, I recommend adding rice flour instead of other scrubbing agents. Rinse yourself with warm water. You can wash yourself with soap afterwards or just leave it that way. To keep the moisture locked under your skin, try to wash yourself with normal to cool temperature water, to close your pores.
Use Greek Yogurt as your Hair Mask!
Yes, you can use Greek Yogurt as your hair mask. I’m not kidding. You can mix the Yogurt with coconut oil, olive oil or Moroccan oil. If you want your hair to smell a little more fresh, I recommend you adding 1 drop of peppermint essential oil in it. If you want to feel more relax and calm, adding lavender essential oil will do the job too. After you are done preparing your hair mask, it’s now the fun time. Wet your hair and lather the masks all over your hair. Leave the mask on for about 15- 30 minutes. If you have more time you can leave it on longer. I sometimes, when doing my chores, would where the mask on for half day. It’s up to you what time frame works. The longer it is the better your hair will soak up all the nutrients. After your time is up, you can rinse it off with shampoo and conditioner. Your hair will feel so soft and look shiny.
Since our lives are super busy, making hair mask by yourself seems unrealistic! I know you don’t even have time to yourself in each day. At the end of the day all we want to do is go to bed.
Good news is HASK just launched their new Haircare collection, HASK Greek Yogurtshampoo, conditioner and deep conditioner. #HaskGoesGreek I’m one of the people who had a chance to try them right when they came out.
