Seven Uncommon Uses for Yogurt
Yogurt is one of the most powerfully healthy products that we can walk into a store and purchase direct from the shelf. Although it is loaded with all kinds of things that are good for us, yogurt is actually even more diverse than that! There are many uses for yogurt that go beyond eating. Here are seven uncommon uses for yogurt that might just surprise you:
As a Foot Scrub
Did you know that yogurt is a natural moisturizer and that it can make a wonderful skin softener. This is particularly true if you add in an astringent of some kind like ground nuts. Just take some almonds or other similar nut and grind it up to almost a powder. Then mix it in with yogurt and use it on rough patches of skin on the feet and elbows. You will be amazed at how awesome this works.
If you suffer from sunburn, yogurt should be a regular staple in your fridge for relief. This is especially true for those minor sunburns that makes your skin feel leathery and coarse. Take some yogurt and smear it on your skin the next time you burn and let it sit for half an hour. Rinse it off and you will be surprised at how well this works.
To Heal and Treat Yeast Infections
Nobody likes the feeling of a yeast infection and yogurt can actually prevent you from getting one. Eating it regularly is a great way to do this because it contains Lactobacillus Acidophilus….that means good bacteria. If you already have one, try rubbing some yogurt on the affected area for relief.
As a Unique Facial
Hard to believe but a cup of yogurt gives a mean facial! Not only will it soften your skin, it will also make it feel vibrant and fresh! Mix a cup of yogurt with the juice from an orange for a particularly refreshing skin revival.
To Thicken Shakes and Smoothies
If you are a lover of shakes and smoothies, you know the frustration of getting them to the right consistency. Yogurt allows you to get that without sacrificing taste.
To Entertain the Kids
Who loves finger paints? Everybody! Simply add some food coloring to regular yogurt and you have ready made finger paints that you don’t have to worry about as a parent.
To Slow Down Upset Stomach
Diarrhea causes us stomach pain and gas and it is caused by the bad bacteria our stomach produces at times. Yogurt actually kills that bad bacteria and can slow the effects of diarrhea without the cost of over the counter medicines.
