Lori Harvey, the adopted child of Steve Harvey, is an American socialite and model who has gained a lot of attention on TikTok for her beauty hacks.
Just the other day, she revealed that she uses yoghurt as a night mask in one of her TikTok videos, which has since gone viral with more than 3.1 million views at the time of writing.
We’re not that surprised that yoghurt is beneficial for the skin as it is rich in probiotics. It has beneficial organisms which can not only help prevent ageing, but also make your cells healthier.
However, a simple yoghurt night mask may not be enough for your skin to reap the full benefits of probiotics. This is why we recommend using skincare products infused with probiotics instead.
Probiotic skincare can encourage the growth of good bacteria in the skin’s microbiome. This allows the skin’s protective barrier to form, making it appear firmer and more radiant.
If you are interested in trying out some probiotic skincare, we’ve come up with a list of products. That way, you can save the Greek yoghurt for dessert.
