Who doesn’t love a good skin day? Smooth, blemish-free skin can be a great boost for your confidence, and the condition of your skin can tell you a lot about your overall health. And, just like the popular saying “you are what you eat” suggests, what you put into your body has a big impact on your health. Luckily for yogurt lovers, eating yogurt provides lots of benefits for your skin.
How Yogurt Benefits Your Skin:
One of the most well-known benefits of homemade yogurt is that it contains probiotics, good-for-you bacteria help keep your gut healthy. A healthy gut and a strong microbiome – your body’s store of good bacteria – help mitigate digestive disorders and prevent constipation. They also help improve your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and can help with skin conditions like acne, eczema and rosacea. By helping to maintain a balance of bacteria in your gut, probiotics can also decrease inflammation and reduce the appearance of dry areas and redness. TopTherm’s yogurt starter cultures contain multiple types of probiotic cultures to help support healthy skin and overall wellness.
Yogurt – especially Greek yogurt – is high in protein, making it a great snack that keeps you feeling fuller for longer. Protein also benefits the appearance of your skin. For example, it helps your body build and repair tissues, leading to stronger, more radiant skin. Protein also helps to keep your skin looking firm by increasing the amount of collagen found in your body. With TopTherm’s yogurt maker, you can easily make yogurt and Greek yogurt at home for a protein-rich boost your skin will love.
To keep your skin healthy from the inside out, it’s important to consume foods rich in vitamins. Fortunately, homemade Greek yogurt is full of nutrients. For example, yogurt contains plenty of B vitamins, including B2 (riboflavin), which can help you maintain a sufficient level of collagen, support cell growth, and help keep your skin hydrated. Yogurt also contains lactic acid, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Staying hydrated is an important step to maintaining healthy skin. It helps you avoid skin problems like dryness, peeling, infections, irritations, and premature aging. Eating yogurt supplies your body with probiotics and improves your gut health, which also helps your body retain moisture. This contributes to gorgeous, healthy skin!
