11 Surprising Uses for Yogurt

  • 5 of 8

6. Use for a DIY facial
Lactic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid, using it on your face as yogurt is so mild that even highly sensitive skin can take it. Yogurt can even out skin tone, fade freckles over time, and do a wonderful job to tighten pores and cleanse skin. Clean your face, apply a thin layer of plain yogurt to face, throat, and chest, and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. You can use this treatment every day.

7. Soothe canker sores
Eat two servings of yogurt a day until the sores clear.

8. Soothe sunburn pain
To soothe sunburn pain, spread yogurt on affected area and let sit for twenty minutes–then rinse clean with lukewarm warm water.
