Yogurt

Being a super-food, yogurt contains a multitude of powerful nutrients, but this article focuses on yogurt for skin. As a result, we shall look at the specific nutrients in yogurt responsible for rejuvenating and promoting healthy skin.

Zinc in the yogurt not only contains anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce red swellings caused by acne or rashes but also have mild anti-astringent properties that help tighten tissues. Also necessary for cell reproduction and growth of tissues, zinc reduces the size of acne and pimples.

Lactic acid is one of the key ingredients in yogurt. It helps smoothen rough skin, exfoliate skin and moisturize dry skin, among others. Besides that, lactic acid is also very beneficial in helping steer away wrinkles and reducing any already existing wrinkles.

Being a derivative of milk, yogurt is jam packed with calcium, which has great anti-oxidant power.

Yogurt is rich in vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B12 and vitamin B5. One serving cup of yogurt contains 30.5% riboflavin which is a beneficial vitamin in yoghurt for skin that is glowing and hydrated.
