Yogurt is best known as a healthy breakfast food. You can it it plain, add some fruits, buy the flavored versions or grab a frozen treat for dessert. It’s a very versatile dairy product made by fermenting milk with bacteria. Because of this, yogurt can be used for more ways than amping up breakfast time.
Here are some unusual, yet helpful ways, of using yogurt. From health to beauty, this superfood should be a staple in any household.
1. Treat Yeast Infections
For those suffering from yeast infection, immediate treatment is a must. Going to the doctor for a prescription may be embarrassing while rolling the dice and getting non-prescription medication may be harmful. A quick and cost-efective way to get rid of the infection is by eating yogurt. Some may suggest using yogurt topically but ingesting it orally is just as effective, or even more so.
Take a healthy helping of yogurt daily to decrease the incidence of yeast infections as well as prevent urinary tract infections.
2. Homemade Facial
The lactic acid in yogurt is so mild that it’s great to use on highly sensitive skin. When applied to the face, throat and chest, yogurt can even out skin tone, tighten pores and cleanse skin. Simply (apply) a layer after your normal cleansing routine and rinse off with lukewarm water after 20 minutes.
It can also soothe sunburn pain with topical use.
