Janhvi Kapoor’s Surprising DIY Yoghurt Hack Is Something You Need to Try
Janhvi Kapoor knows skincare inside-out with more expertise in 5-minute DIYs. Kapoor has even let us in on her best-kept secrets in the past, many of which were passed down to her by Sridevi. The girl knows how to use her ingredients in the most effective way; especially yoghurt, aka dahi.
But what does Janhvi do differently with yoghurt anyway? Something most of us probably don’t even think about. You’ve got to find out.
Janhvi scoops the topmost layer of the yoghurt into a bowl — aka the malai part of it, claiming that it’s ultra moisturising for the skin. She’s right. The actress has definitely done her research.
Malai Is The Best Thing To Happen To Your Skin…
Malai contains an AHA called Lactic Acid. This AHA gently exfoliates the skin to reveal new, healthy-looking cells underneath. This elimination of dirt and build-up contributes to a smooth, even-toned complexion. Your skin looks and feels younger and plumper in the process.
Lactic Acid excels at moisturising the skin because it contains fatty acids. No wonder you find it in so many creams. This instantly relieves dryness and dullness.
It Delays Ageing
Malai contains vitamins and proteins in that can initiate the production of a protein called collagen which is responsible for the firmness of your skin. But the amount of collagen in your skin depletes as you age — starting in your 20s.
That’s why you need to work harder to maintain those levels by using the right ingredients on your skin. The more the collagen, the lesser the visibility of lines, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing.
Malai can brighten the skin and remove tan as well as pigmentation. This is thanks to its ability to exfoliate the skin effectively.
You can go ahead and recreate Janhvi’s DIY recipe by mixing the malai with some mashed-up banana (or a fruit of your choice) and honey. That’s it.
See? Janhvi understood the assignment.
