Yogurt cleanses the skin and also lightens blemishes, whereas buttermilk helps to repair dull and dry skin.

Glycerin moisturiser
In a container pour in one fourth of glycerin and mix it with a moisturizer. You can use it as a primer before make-up. The glycerin will act as a base coat and the moisturizer will help shield the skin. You can also store this in a container for over six months.
