Oatmeal face mask: Natural, Affordable, Effective

Some of the best skin care product, can be found in your kitchen. A cup of cooked oatmeal is a perfect way to start off your busy day, specially if you don't have time to cook. It's also healthy because it contains thiamine, magnesium, iron, selenium, manganese and zinc. It's a great source of fiber as well.

But, have you consider to use it as face mask? Well, why don't give it a try? I have been using it as a face mask for almost years now. It'll give you a smooth, soft and moisturized skin. But, I suggest to limit its use once a week.


1. Wash your face with a mild cleanser and lukewarm water.

2. Steam your face to open pores. To do this, you need a bowl of boiling water. Place your face near the steaming water and drape a large towel over your head to trap the steam. You can do this for 5 minutes and pat dry your face.

3. Get a spoonful or two of oatmeal and add warm or tap water.

4. Apply the oatmeal mask to your face, avoiding the eye area. Leave it for 5-15 minutes.

5. Rinse your face with tap water and pat dry. Done!

You can consider adding honey or lemon extract to your oatmeal face mask mixture.
