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.
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.
Mix each one in a clean bowl, apply to clean, dry skin and relax for at least 15 minutes before washing off with warm water. I hope you like them and let me know what you think in the comments below!
