Back to the skin-yoghurt relationship. Yoghurt, especially a low-fat one, is a great food source for vitamin A. Vitamin A, as we know is a vital nutrient for maintaining vibrant skin. Vitamin A helps the body produce collagen, an important protein that is partly responsible for the firmness of the skin. It also helps prevent the deterioration or loss of collagen.
Some skin experts have also said that yogurt can be applied to the face two or three times a week for a soft and supple skin. There are claims that it helps with sunburn relief, fighting of acne, reduce discolouration and fight ageing.
