I appreciate how these are broken into skin types and what it will actually do at the end. Good skin care is so expensive and DIY is all the rage right now. I still feel weird applying yogurt all over my face though! This would also be good gifts for friends!

These recipes are nice, but please remember that most of them must be kept refrigerated! Have you ever smelled rancid olive oil?

Hi there, I'm interested in trying out the cucumber yoghurt facial cleanser. But can you tell me what the ingredient 'curbs' is? Is there another name for it? I've not heard of this before. My skin has become really sensitive and dry recently and I seem to react to even natural products so I would love to give this recipe a go. Many thanks, Yiota
