Sunburn be gone
Soothe your next sunburn with yogurt. Here’s how, according to youbeauty.com: Take a handful of yogurt (plain is best) and mix it with a few drops of chamomile essential oil. Spread it on the affected area for about ten minutes. What you’ll get is immediate cooling relief, moisturized soft skin, and protection from the yogurt’s antibacterial properties. Next time, don’t forget the SPF.
Ease a yeast infection
Yogurt’s key ingredient is lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacteria that’s found in intestines and in the vagina. This bacteria, along with sugar in your diet, creates hydrogen peroxide which kills the yeast infection. Yogurt is also essential in restoring balance between good and bad bacteria in the body, because it balances the acid levels in the body which deters yeast from growing. Homeremedies.com offers an assortment of yogurt-specific treatments, such as making a yogurt tampon (don’t knock it till you try it) to applying the dairy staple on the exterior of your vagina to simply eating more of it. If the last option is more up your speed, check out ways to pack a nutritional punch in your yogurt.
Soothe Spot’s tummy
Pets get gas like humans and the reason for it can be a lack of the good bacteria in your pet’s food. You can help ease their tummy pain by adding it to their food. Try two teaspoons of yogurt for dogs or cats that weigh up to 14 pounds, one tablespoon for medium-sized dogs, two tablespoons for large dogs weighing 35 to 84 pounds and three tablespoons for dogs that weigh more than 85 pounds.
