The 50p Hack To Clear Your Complexion, According To A Facialist

Want a skin saver that won't break the bank? This could improve your routine for good

Some of us are experiencing the best skin of our lives after enduring January booze-free… and then there’s the rest of us.

If, like us, you fell off the wagon early on, your skin (and your bank balance) are probably suffering. Enter facialist
Nataliya Robinson ( Known as ‘the skin whisperer’, she has given us the simplest,
cheapest and most natural way to get brighter, tighter skin: Yoghurt.

Yes! A tub of 50p (approx) natural yoghurt could be the game-changer you need…

The Spot Zapper

‘Crush one aspirin into a little natural yoghurt and apply to blemishes for 10 minutes only, before removing,’ reveals Nataliya.

‘Aspirin consists of salicylic acid,which helps to reduce inflammation and soothe the skin. Spots are a build up of dead skin, and this consistency also works as an exfoliant, which removes the dead cells on the skin.’

The Make-Your-Own Mask

‘Apply a layer of yoghurt to the face and wait until it starts to dry and tighten,’ says Nataliya.

‘Once dry, apply a second layer. Repeat until you’ve applied three layers. Leave for 10-20 minutes and rinse off with water. Yoghurt cleanses and hydrates, and is great for those with red, flaky, itchy skin.

‘Do it once a week for 10 weeks to see results. Greek-style or kefir are your best options as they’re very pure, while coconut kefir is ideal for vegans.’
