While I’m all for the latest discovery and diving into new beauty recipes, sometimes when it comes to your face, simple really is best. Oatmeal masks have been around for centuries and today, I’m going to show you how to customize this classic facial mask to create the perfect blend for your unique skin.

The Ultimate Oatmeal Mask for Dry Skin

But first, let’s cover the benefits of Oatmeal and why this base has had the incredible staying power that it has. Here are just a few all-natural benefits of using Oatmeal:

  •  Reduces pore size
  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Helps to calm the skin
  • Improves skin tone, texture, and discoloration
  • Treats eczema, acne, and rosacea naturally
  • Benefits even the most sensitive skin

Pretty amazing right? Now, when we pair it with a few other complimentary ingredients, you create the perfect mask without leaving the kitchen.

Oatmeal Mask for Normal/ Combination Skin

If you have normal/ combination skin, this means you may have some oily patches on your T-zone and dry or patchy areas around the eyes.  Sometimes your skin can also be fairly predictable. If this sounds like you, whip up this recipe:


Oatmeal Mask for Dry Skin:

If you have dry skin (like me) you’ll want to add some extra moisturizers to the mix. Here’s why each one is important:

Banana:  Is extremely high in vitamins B6, B12, magnesium and potassium. This natural skin-tightener/ acne buster is packs a lot of power.

Egg Yolk: Is loaded with protein, which is the building block for skin tissue. It promotes skin elasticity and repair. It also is high in Vitamin A, which heals dry, itchy skin and Vitamin B2, which fights free radicals from damaging the skin.

Honey: The natural antibacterial in honey is great for calming breakouts and preventing future ones. It also creates an incredible, healthy glow.

  1. Hey, I’m new to your site and I absolutely love it! Such amazing recipes for skincare. Its funny because I began experimenting with my own body scrubs and bath bombs last year and gave them as Christmas presents…but then I started a 9-5 job and it fizzled out. Now that I’m not working and at home and coincidentally its Christmastime again its been on my mind alot here lately. My family and friends loved the products I gave them! I made a almond oil coffee sugar scrub, a lemonbalm and thyme face scrub and others. Lavandar shea butter bath bombs, and peppermint almond bombs…just to name a couple. Really just a creative bored Sagittarius throwing oils and butters (bases) together in the kitchen 😆
    I did have a question…somewhere in this story of a comment (I’m sorry)
    The oatmeal for dry faces since its supposed to be cooked when mixing it, then the banana and egg…how would you suggest giving that as a gift? Any advice? Oh and of course I’m def gonna have to make me some too I have the worst dry and red face ever! Thank you so much and if you have time to respond to me, thank you for that too!!

    • I’m so happy you like the recipe! I’m not sure how to give this particular recipe as a pre-mixed mask…. especially since the banana will likely turn brown and ugly in storage. Maybe this recipe is just for you to use on a self care night after you make all your friends incredible beauty products. I’d love to hear how to you added shea butter into a bath bomb! That sounds incredible!
