Food For Your Face | Yoghurt
As one of the oldest and most popular fermented foods on the planet, yoghurt has made its way into supermarkets, lunch boxes, and stomachs everywhere! Whether you opt for flavoured, Greek, frozen, or goats’ milk, yoghurt has an incredible range of health benefits for both consumption and topical application. Grab a tub from the fridge and let’s chat yoghurt!
5 Food Facts
1. Yoghurt is created through a bacterial fermentation of milk. Once fermented, the lactose in the milk becomes lactic acid which makes the yoghurt thick and sour.
2. The live bacteria (probiotics) in certain types of yoghurt are excellent for your digestive health.
3. Yoghurt is very high in protein, making it an excellent snack to keep your energy up throughout the day
4. Certain yoghurts contain a low lactose content, meaning that those with a lactose intolerance can still enjoy the benefits it has to offer. However, start with a small amount of yoghurt to see how you go – only you know what is right for your body!
5. Thicker than other options, Greek yoghurt is made by straining out the extra whey (the liquid on top). This results in a creamier and tangier yoghurt.
5 Fun Facts
1. Yoghurt has been on the menu for centuries as ancient cultures used it as a way to preserve milk
2. Believe it or not, yoghurt can be used as a natural cleaning product. Rub a few tablespoons of plain yoghurt in brass and marvel at the shine.
3. In 2017 in Germany a man by the name of Andre Ortolf took out the tile for most yoghurt eaten in one minute! He ate (brace yourself for this) 1.685 kilograms in just sixty seconds.
4. Ever had trouble figuring out how to spell yoghurt? Well rest assured; the Oxford English Dictionary recognises at least a dozen variations so you’re probably on the right track!
5. Frozen yoghurt may share the same name, however it’s actually much closer to ice cream than it is to actual yoghurt. Sorry, froyo!
Face the Facts: Yoghurt in Skin Care
The probiotics in yoghurt aren’t just great for your gut health, you’ll want to save some for your skin care routine as well! Probiotics help calm inflammation and soothe acne while zinc helps regulate the skin’s sebum production. The antibacterial and antifungal properties of yoghurt also make it a wonder for treating breakouts by addressing the underlying bacteria.
Yoghurt natural contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, which acts as a non-granular exfoliation by dissolving dead skin cells. This
helps aid skin cell turnover, restore elasticity in your skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
