Yogurt is a highly effective treatment for the common skin condition rosacea. It has the ability to soften the skin while calming the redness. Simply apply it as a mask, and leave on for about 15 minutes. Rinse, and apply a light layer of olive oil. Here a couple other yogurt masks to try:

Ingredients:

* 1 cup cold natural yogurt (Stonyfield Greek Organic is best)
* ½ cup oatmeal (any type of basic oatmeal works here)

Preparation:
Mix the ingredients together.
Apply to the skin for 10-15 minutes.
Wash off mask with a washcloth steamed in the microwave (careful that it’s not too hot).

Other fun options for oatmeal face masks: 
Add egg whites to the recipe above.  Mix the oatmeal and an egg white. Let the mixture dry on face, then gently wash off with a few splashes of warm water.  Follow with a steaming washcloth to the face.
