Yogurt -- good for you inside and out.
To prepare for summer, sun worshippers might want to stock their refrigerators with plain yogurt as an alternative to expensive creams.
The secret to yogurt's effectiveness is its combination of lactic acid, proteins and enzymes that increase the skin's water content, providing relief from sun-induced redness and burning.
