Yogurt Mask and Protecting Your Skin Green Tip #8

Green Tip #8
Protecting your Skin and a Yogurt Face Mask

First I want to mention you should be wearing sunscreen everyday.  I put mine on first thing in the morning along with my makeup.  If I am not wearing makeup that day, I add only that.  I like to take walks, run, and enjoy being outside and sometimes random quick outings happen without the thought to lotion up with at least 15 or higher.  Having a daily habit will help protect you. 

It is recommended to be out of the sun between 10am-4pm, but not everyone can avoid those times.  When out please remember to wear UV protecting sunglasses, sunscreen, and hats.  Look for non toxic Skin Care Lotions as well.. 
  • Avoid Sunscreens with Oxybenzone or Benzophenone-3, studies have shown these to increase the risk of cancer and other illnesses.
  • Instead look for products with Titanium or Zinc. 

Get a little too much sun on your face? You can lighten and even out your skin tone naturally with Yogurt.

  1. I never knew yogurt could be used as a skin mask. Very interesting. I do agree that sunscreen should always be worn whenever possible.
