On the other hand, I love the benefits of rice powder as well. I have read some site that recommended adding rice powder to yoghurt as it claims to reduce wrinkles, blemishes and helps in brightening. So I have decided to amped up my yoghurt mask with my bedak sejuk pastilles.
More Facts about the Benefits of Yoghurt..
Yogurt is a proven treasure-trove of enriching elements like zinc, calcium, lactic acid, Vitamins B1, B2, B-6 and B-12, protein, and yeast. It holds rich deposits of friendly bacteria that boost overall health as well as that of the hair and skin. Yogurt has a multitude of benefits that will surely work wonders for your hair and skin problems.
Yogurt has many healthy enzymes and adds natural oils to the skin. It can diminish pore size, a frequent nuisance for the skin, and can improve the overall skin texture, besides adding a healthy glow to your skin. You can also use yogurt to treat your acne and acne scar. It helps to clear your skin too because it is rich in zinc.
I use a half a tablespoon of yoghurt and mixed 3-5 pastilles to it. If you have oily prone skin, you may add more rice pastilles or powder because this is a wonderful mask to help to absorb the oil but balances up your skin with moisture at the same time because of the yoghurt.
Smooth this paste over your face and leave it on for about ten minutes, then wash it off with warm water.
Yes, it is as simple as that and your face does feels soft and much smoother, than using yoghurt alone!
Because my skin is now back to normal, I do have slightly oily area at my T zone. This combo is a great once a week purifying mask for me as it helps to balance up my skin and helps in oil control.
I've been using this mask for 2 months now and I do have to say it helps in hydrating my skin and gives me brighter complexion each time. For wrinkles, well...it's too soon to tell because I don't have any major issues with it to begin with.
One thing I love to use yoghurt as a mask because it is so verstile and inexpensive! You can add rolled oats, which helps to minimize your pores or manuka honey for extra moisturization. It is certainly one of the many great wonders that God created for us all to enjoy.
Tips: You may replace the bedak sejuk with rice powder ( preferably organic/ unbleached ) for this mask.
