So we all know that facemasks you buy from the store contain chemicals and preservatives. Which is why I prefer to make my facemasks at home with all natural ingredients. This oatmeal-yogurt-honey mask will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth and will also brighten your complexion. Plus (as an added bonus) the ingredients can be found in your fridge and pantry.
What you need:
- 1/4 Cup Oatmeal (if you have a food processor I would grind the oatmeal into small pieces)
- 2 Tablespoons Honey
- 3 Tablespoons Plain Yogurt (Yes I used homemade yogurt, however, any plain yogurt is okay to use)
Here's what you do. Mix all three ingredients together then apply a layer to your face and relax for 15 minutes. And by relax I mean lay down as you don't want the mask dripping off your face. Rinse the mask off using warm water and a wash cloth by gently rubbing the mask off your face to let the oatmeal act as an exfoliant.
Oatmeal not only acts as a gentle exfoliant, it also soothes out itchy skin conditions and dryness. Yogurt contains enzymes and lactic acid to hydrate and soothe your skin. And lastly, honey contains antioxidants and heels infections.
