Since yogurt will not harm your skin, you can easily use basic yogurt mask. However, it you are allergic to milk, yogurt mask may cause irritation. You can test this allergy by applying a small portion on your hand. This way you can see the reaction of your body.

My last warning is to people with sensitive and dry skin. If you have dry or sensitive skin, you may reduce the lemon in lemon yogurt mask by half. Lemon will dry the skin. This may not be problem for oily skins, but it will irritate dry skins.
