GLOW-GURT!

WANT GREAT-LOOK­ING SKIN? THE AN­SWER LIES IN YO­GURT!

CLEO (Malaysia) - - EDITOR’S NOTE -

Here’s another rea­son to tuck into that tub of dairy good­ness: Sci­en­tists at Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (MIT) found that mice showed im­proved coats and younger-look­ing skin af­ter in­gest­ing it. Though it hasn’t yet been proven in hu­mans, live and ac­tive cul­tures in yo­gurt help di­ges­tion as well as the im­mune sys­tem. Want faster re­sults? You can try Lauren Conrad’s Greek Yo­ghurt Mask recipe. All you need is to mix a pro­bi­otic cap­sule (which you can eas­ily ob­tain from a health-food store) with three to four ta­ble­spoons of Greek yo­gurt. Then, us­ing cot­ton balls, ap­ply the mix­ture onto your face. Wash off af­ter 10 min­utes us­ing luke­warm wa­ter. The re­sult? Softer and silker skin, just like yo­gurt it­self! Not just a tool to clean your chop­pers with, this af­ford­able beauty ne­ces­sity has other in­ter­est­ing uses. Here’s how make-up artists are us­ing the tooth­brush in their craft. - Use to scrub away dry skin on lips. - Spritz hair­spray on it be­fore us­ing it to tame fly­aways. - Use it as a lash comb to de-clump mas­cara on lashes. - Re­move pow­der or de­odor­ant stain from dark cloth­ing. - Gen­tly brush bruises to im­prove blood cir­cu­la­tion and lighten the dis­coloura­tion. El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Un­told EDP 50ml, RM249, is a mod­ern and sen­sual scent with its flo­ral notes. Do our read­ers agree?
