I went for the plain yogurt. I mixed nothing in it. Experts say nothing else is needed anyways. The entire thing I applied to my clean face and waited 10 minutes. Actually, I wanted to keep the mask longer. But the refreshing smell of the yogurt soon started to turn rotten for my nose. It was too much to take. So I hurriedly had to wash it off. After pat drying, I noticed a glow in the skin. There was also a feeling of being moisturized. Unfortunately, after a while, it turned overbearing too. I felt as if something kept my face clutched tightly. It was the oiliness. Soon the itches followed. Yet I decided to go to sleep. The next day, I got one pimple under my chin. It was huge. This is where I brought end to my experiment.
What exactly went wrong? I still believe that yogurt itself did not cause the pimple. The problem was in the sticky oiliness. I already have a combination skin. During mild winter, it does a good job of managing balance dryness between moisture. Yogurt simply left more oil than my skin needed. This excess oil ended up attracting dust from all around the room or bed. At one point, this is what triggered the pimple to form.
I am not going to use yogurt anymore. The test did confirm that it is not for me. Yet I would presume that those who have exceptional dry skin might get some benefit from yogurt face mask. Its oil is quite intense if you ask me. That pimple came out too fast. So it would be better to run a test like this before making the ingredient regular for beauty treatment.
