DIY: oats & honey facial mask

I am very passionate when it comes to skin care and I love to dabble in homemade skin products. Why spend so much money on fancy skin products when you can make some of the same products right at home? Today, I'm going to teach you how to make a simply oats and honey facial mask. This is a wonderful toning mask and is great for people with oily skin or skin that tends to be very red.

The combination of oats and honey has a tremendous effect on skin. This simple, easy-to-make mask gently unblocks pores and helps to dramatically improve skin texture. The duo of these two ingredients restores a healthy glow to the skin, making you look fresh, young, and beautiful.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of plain oatmeal
1/4 cup of honey
A blender
A bowl/jar

Yields: enough mask for one treatment

To make:

1. After the oatmeal has been cooked and cooled, combine the two ingredients and blend until a sticky paste is formed. This is best used immediately.
2. To use, spread thickly onto the skin, avoiding the sensitive eye area. Leave on for twenty minutes and then rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
How it works:

The oatmeal absorbs the oiliness from the skin and pores and also removes dead skin cells. It also exfoliates the skin. The honey is just used so that the oatmeal can better adhere to the skin.

Of course, before you apply this mask to your face, it is suggested that you do a patch test on another part of your skin to see how your body reacts to this mask. Like all facial masks, this is not suited for everyone's skin types/skin needs, so please exercise caution.

Enjoy!
