Beauty Treatments For Hippies: Yogurt Face Mask

According to the internet, yogurt is just about the most amazing fucking thing you could ever put on your face. It prevents wrinkles, helps with both dry an oily skin, tightens pores, reduces redness, and turns back the clock, Benjamin Button style, until you have the same glowing, dewy complexion that you had at age nine.

So I decided to try it. Here’s how you can, too:

    I wonder if different types of yogurt have different results.

    So hippie women know things? :) Jessica, your posting’s photo brought me in. You look like a woman I dated in college, early ’80s. Yeah a long time ago – ouch! She was from the Bronx, Riverdale. We’d come home for the holidays, and she’d drop me off in the 170s in the South Bronx, to take the D train – quickest way from there to Brooklyn. to Dekalb Ave. for the transfer back Downtown. She was crazy and wasn’t afraid of anything. Yeah, hippie women pride themselves on having nice looking skin.

    Another good mask is mixing half of an avocado with a tablespoon of plain yogurt – so awesome! (Idea from Birchbox: https://www.birchbox.com/the-haute-box/the-best-face-masks-for-your-skin/)

    Are the results better with Greek yogurt, or will the non-Greek variety do?

    I eat yogurt all the time, so I figured “what the heck!?” and put it on my face. Maybe I left it on for too long because when I washed it off my skin was red and inflamed! I do have sensitive skin so that could be another reason why this happend. I will say that my face felt smoother than a baby’s butt!! So to all my fellow ladies with sensitive skin, I’d reccommend not leaving it on for the full 30 minutes – maybe more like 15.
