While plain yoghurt itself can work as an excellent mask, you can also add some things extra for the added benefit. For inflammatory and oily skin, you can add a little honey and a pinch of turmeric into your yoghurt face masks. For irritated skin, add a little honey and aloe vera gel. For hyperpigmentation squeeze a few drops of lemon into the pack.
