This Oatmeal and Honey Face Mask recipe is a classic for me because it’s such a great , moisturizing mask for those with sensitive skin, and you can also tailor it for specific skin ailments. Need to soothe irritated, dry skin? Just replace the water in the recipe with whole milk and add an extra teaspoon of Shea butter. For a gentle acne-fighting mask, just replace the water with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and 2 drops of tea tree oil. Play around with this basic recipe for your specific skin needs!
What you will need
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1/3 cup of ground oats
- 3 teaspoons of honey
Start by grinding the oats to a fine powder in a coffee or spice grinder. Add the ground oats to the water and mix well. Once the two ingredients are well incorporated, stir in the honey. Apply to your face and leave on for 15 minutes, and then wash off with warm water. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
