oatmeal-honey face mask

Here is a great gentle oatmeal mask for those of us that have sensitive skin. I guarantee this will leave your face feeling clean, soft, and smooth. Again, like the oatmeal and sunflower scrub, these items are most likely in your kitchen and the mask only takes a few minutes to whip up. The honey contains anti-microbial properties to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin, the oatmeal is to put moisture back and soften, and the egg tightens the pores for a smoother complexion. Put all the benefits of each together and you have a wonderful mask for the skin.

You need:
1 tablespoon runny honey (warm honey that runs easily)
1 egg yolk
4 tablespoons fine ground oatmeal
small bowl
towel

sensitive skin mask

To make:
1. Add the egg yolk to the honey and mix with a fork until well blended.
2. Slowly stir in the oatmeal a little at a time to make a soft paste.
3. Use immediately.
4. Smooth the mask onto your skin using your fingertips in a circular motion- this is a little messy, make sure you have a towel close at hand.
5. Put your feet up for 15 minutes while the oatmeal, egg, and honey do their softening magic on your skin.
6. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.

add oats until paste forms

 Fauna LOVES this oatmeal mask too, but don’t let this sweet (?) face fool you……….

    I Just Tired This Mask (Actually I Have It On Right This Second.) I Love It! Its Kinda Thicker Looking Then Yours But I Sure It Has Same Affect.

    Its Smells Really Good, And I’m Sure It Taste Good Too! But I’m Not Sure If I Want To Eat It.

    Thanks For The Idea Guys!

    I love these kids of masks…I use one once a week. I almost always use honey ( my favorite tasty humectant!) and oats.

    This has been one of favorite masks to make in the winter months. I just recently discovered the moisture benefits of using straight honey, and it has really helped me through out winter. I have been putting this mask into the blender, and it comes out a thick paste that feels so darn good on dry skin.
    Gorgeous photos Lisa!

    The mask sound wonderful and reminds me of something my mom used to buy when I was little so I already imagine I know what it smells like.

    And Fauna is beautiful.

    Her eyes are just beautiful in that first photo!

    You know, this post made me giggle. You see, I tried making an oatmeal & lavender facial mask once. It never occurred to me that I had to make a small batch & use it immediately. Instead, I stored it. What did I find when I dipped my hand into the jar a week later? MOLD. In fact, it was very angry black mold. LOL!!!! That, my friend, was my last attempt at a homemade facial mask.

      GROSS Jessica! I don’t think black mold would be good on the face or anywhere else for that matter!
