I think it has to do with the bacteria in the yogurt. Yogurt is basically alive with little bacteria that works well in your system. I think we already have some of this bacteria and it gets bombarded with all kinds of things that are harmful to it. So, eating yogurt basically replaces and nourishes this bacteria that we already have which is a very healthy type of bacteria. Is it used for acne by putting it on the face? Maybe the bacteria in the yogurt kills the bacteria in the acne. I don't know about that, though.

Well, as far as the acne is concerned, eating the yogurt will prevent bacteria that causes pimples.

People who can not use milk because of the lactose intolerence can use yogurt. In yogurt lactose will be converted by the bacterial action into lactic acid. Yogurt is good for stomach and digestion. it contains calcium and prevents osteoporosis.

It's also good for urinary tract infections. It replaces the bad bacteria with good bacteria. Yogurt is an overall healthy food because of the live bacteria it contains.

I agree with you plus it also helps me on a diet like I will no longer eat rice and pork or whatever I will take during breakfast after having yogurt! For sure, this is good for skin too!LOL!

It does have cultures that help to eat away at parasites in your digestive trac. Haven't heard about the acne claim though.

HI cream, yoghurt is good because it help us in gastrointestinal conditions, and the source calcium and vitamin B2. My mom applied yogurt on hairs, as per her information Dandruff can be cured by it. Dr asked my sister to eat yoghurt because she had Urinary track infection.

I've used a yogurt mask before and that is very nice for the skin. I guess it might work for acne. I haven't tried it on pimples. It leaves the skin so soft and that's very nice. I will have to buy some really soon for that purpose. I have a beauty blog, with homemade beauty recipes. This sounds like one I've heard of before. I'll have to check. Thanks!

I read about yogurt and how people who eat them regularly get to ripe old age without any ailments and it got me interested in yogurt. When I finally had my first taste of it I did not like it yet I ate it all and later I began to like it especially when I add banana.

I had to do several articles on acne about a month ago and found that if you use plain yogurt and mix some honey and oatmeal with it you can scrub your face with it or even leave it on for awhile and the acne will get better.
