The yoghurt face mask is produced from a principle active ingredient named yogurtene, whose active constituents are the following:
- Lactose (53.5%)
- Protein (25%)
- Lactic acid (7.5%)
- Minerals and trace elements (5%)
- Vitamins (1%)
- Water (3%)
- Lipids (2%)
All of these active ingredients provide firmness to the skin, given that they help in the reorganisation of the collagen and retaining moisture. This mask is also used to treat burns and other skin complaints thanks to its soothing and calming properties.
The application of live bacteria found in yogurt (streptococcus thermophilus and lactobacillus bulgaricus) produces a natural pH rebalance for the skin and microflora, and for this reason, it is used in cosmetics.
Its usage is very simple, as you simply have to apply a layer of the mask onto the face, neck and neckline and leave it to act for between 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, simply rinse the mask off with plenty of water.
