Welcome to the first ever Anti Ageing April. I’m delighted to say the challenge has now officially started and we are kicking off the month with a nice and easy tip, so no excuses!
As we get older our skin’s natural ability to exfoliate slows down, resulting in the appearance of a dull lacklustre complexion. However we can counteract the slowing of this process by using natural acids which break the bonds between skin cells, revealing newer cells beneath.
Yoghurt contains lactic acid, which when applied to the skin, acts as a gentle chemical exfoliant. It is suitable for all skin types – even the most sensitive. Fun fact – that’s the reason Cleopatra bathed in milk!
I used bio plain yoghurt but you can use any you have in the fridge. You might feel a bit silly at first, but rest assured this is no April Fool’s!
I’d love to hear how you get on with this today, so please take photos, videos, post comments and most importantly tell everyone you know to join us! If you haven’t signed up to receive daily emails, please do so at
