Most women are aware that the skin tends to suffer from aggressions because of continuous exposure to the sun and toxins from the environment.
Although it is true that it has the capacity to regenerate every day, sometimes it is overloaded and it develops a series of alterations that seem unsightly to us.
Loss of elasticity and collagen, accumulation of dead cells and burns are only a small part of things that can affect us and age.
As a solution to this, we find a wide range of cosmetic products and professional techniques that reverse the damage and stimulate repair. The problem is that some are too expensive and not everyone has enough money to access them.
Fortunately, there are much cheaper solutions that give us good results without exposing the skin to chemicals or aggressive procedures.
On this occasion, we want to share a homemade cream that takes advantage of the properties of yogurt to revitalize the skin and reduce stains. Ready to try it?
Natural cream of yogurt and almonds to whiten the skin
The combination of ingredients used in this natural cream results in a treatment to eliminate dead cells and improve the appearance of the face.
Natural yogurt is a very healthy product whose lactic acid content helps regulate the natural pH of the skin to avoid the appearance of imperfections.
It is considered as one of the best alternative moisturizers, as it helps to retain natural moisture without causing alterations in the production of oils.
Contains live bacteria that act in favor of skin health to prevent acne and the early appearance of spots and wrinkles
On the other hand, we find almond powder, an ingredient rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants that benefit the dermis.
Its high contribution of vitamin E protects against oxidative damage caused by free radicals and prevents the deterioration of cells and tissues. Its natural oils restore dry skin and prevent problems such as eczema and psoriasis.
In addition, we propose adding a little honey and lemon to the cream in order to enhance its whitening action.
How to prepare this natural whitening cream?
One of the advantages of making natural cosmetic products is that the preparation steps are very simple and do not take away too much time.
The ingredients that are used are very easy to acquire in the market, although it is important to pay attention to choose those that are 100% organic.
You may find some presentations at fairly cheap prices, but the quality may not be as good.
• 1 and ½ cups plain yogurt (375 g)
• 4 almonds
• 2 tablespoons lemon juice (20 ml)
• 1 tablespoon honey (25 g)
• Put the almonds in a processor or grinder and turn them into powder. If you can, you can buy almond flour ready to save you this step.

Mode of application
• Every night before bed, clean the complexion skin and leave it free of all traces of makeup.
• After making sure it is clean, apply a good amount of the cream and let it act for 20 minutes.
• After this time, rinse with warm water and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
For optimal results, you must include the application of this cream in your daily night routine. If you use it only occasionally it is likely that you will find it difficult to notice the changes.
Avoid applying it during the day as lemon juice reacts negatively with exposure to the sun. In addition, it is a product designed for night use because it supports the skin repair processes that occur during the rest period.
From the first application, you will feel a feeling of cleanness and freshness that you will love. However, its bleaching effect may take a few weeks.
If you want, you can also apply it on the neck and neckline for greater benefits. Remember that these areas are much more sensitive and require more care
Finally, we recommend using a good sunscreen every day to reinforce the effects of this product
