My Beauty tips :
1) The recipe of yoghurt scrub :
Because it contains lactic acid, yogurt is an excellent enzymatic exfoliator (that is to say without grains). With it, no need for friction, it is acids that nibble dead skin and eliminate sebum : In a bowl, mix 1/2 Bulgarian yoghurt + a few drops of lemon juice (citric acid increases the capacity of enzymatic exfoliation) + 1 teaspoon of Bulgarian honey (to temper the aggressive effect of lemon). Apply the liquid paste on your face, leave for at least 15 minutes without rubbing and rinse.
2) The beauty mask recipe with yogurt :
Yogurt captures moisture on the surface of the skin and regulates excess sebum. In a bowl, mix 1 Bulgarian yogurt with brewed whole milk + 1 teaspoon of honey. Apply the mixture with emphasis on the areas where the pores are particularly dilated, leave for at least 15 minutes and rinse. For an even more focused blackhead action, mix a little bit of Bulgarian yogurt with the same amount of turmeric or rice flour. Place the dough on the black dot area, massage for 5 minutes then rinse.
