10 Curd Face Packs For Different Skin Types October 17, 2017

Skin care can be tricky. While most of us know that a CTM routine is barely enough to keep our faces glowing, busy schedules can keep us from giving it that extra TLC it so desperately needs. Looking for products that suit your skin and address its concerns is not only time consuming, but it can also get heavy in the pocket.

While we try to make do with what we have, we can feel that our skin is not what it once used to be. That’s why I’ve put together this list of 10 curd face packs for different skin types that can save your skin while helping you save time, effort, and money. But before we dive in, let’s look at how curd helps your skin.

Benefits Of Applying Curd On Your Face

  • Exfoliates Your Skin- Curd contains lactic acid which helps your skin with its shedding process. This will help your skin look young, fresh, and healthy 24×7.
  • Nourishes Your Skin- The presence of essential fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals help nourish your skin and keep it healthy.
  • Maintains Skin Health- Curd has antibacterial properties which keep acne and other skin issues at bay.
  • Keeps Your Skin Hydrated- The rich fat content in yogurt can help seal moisture into your skin, keeping it hydrated for a long time. This, combined with the improved cell turnover brought about by the lactic acid, can help tackle a bad tan, dullness, and pigmentation.
  • Soothes Your Skin- Curd has a cooling effect on your skin. It relieves inflammation and acne with its antibacterial properties while also fading marks.

All of these properties make curd an excellent skin care ingredient and here’s how you can use it:
