Lori Harvey, the adopted child of Steve Harvey, is an American model and socialite who has garnered a lot of attention on TikTok for her beauty tips.
Recently, she shared how to use yogurt as a night mask in one of her TikTok videos, which has since blown up with more than 3.1 million views at time of writing.
The idea behind this is that yogurt is rich with probiotics. This means that it contains beneficial organisms that not only make your cells healthier, but also help prevent signs of ageing.
While it sounds good in theory, a simple slathering on yogurt on your face may not be enough to harness the goodness of probiotics. Here’s a tip from Daily Vanity: turn to skincare products infused with probiotics.
Probiotic skincare can encourage the growth of good bacteria in the skin’s microbiome and allow the skin’s protective barrier to form, making it appear firmer and more radiant.
If you are interested in implementing some probiotic skincare into your routine, we’ve come up with a list of products, so you don’t have to sacrifice your Greek yogurt.
