DIY: Homemade Oatmeal Face Mask



DIY: Homemade Oatmeal Face Mask 


I've used this little mask for years now. It's a really simple and easy way to nourish and treat your skin to a little TLC. All you need is some oatmeal, and water. So it's also a cheap alternative to all those posh and pricey masks and treatments.


1. Take just under a 1/3 Cup of oatmeal, about a handful will do nicely. I use a measuring cup becuase it makes adding water easier than holding it your hand. But either way will work. 
2. Next run some warm water into cup and let sit for about a minitue for all the oats to soak it up and become all milky with goodness.
3. Rub all over your face in small circles , avoiding your eyes and allow to sit for about two minitues. 
Warning - this can be a bit messy, so do make sure you it over a sink. 
4.After two minitues - simple rinse off with warm water and pat dry. 

And thats it!








This mask is lovely. Oatmeal is known for its moisturizing properies, you'll notice that once you add the water, the oatmeal will make the water and white milky, which contains lots of yummy vitamins to nourish and moisturise the skin! Oatmeal also has a lovely soothing and calming effect, So if you're suffering from break outs or redness  this mask will help reduce these signs. By rubbing this mask in circular motions over your face, the oats will work as a mild exfoliant too, helping to rid your skin of dead and dull cells, reveling new healthy skin.


Another quick tip for those with acne - adding a little bit of honey! Honey has natural anti-bacterial properties which works wonders on spots. As well as being kind to skin!
