BEAUTY: Oatmeal-Honey Mask

I love buying masks.   The thought of deep dermal cleansing really appeals to my OCD side. In the last few months alone, I purchased a Tar Mask at Raya Spa, a Suki Clay Mask, and an Organic Apoteke Detox Mask.  While mask shopping is always fun, they don't always work.  This oatmeal mask is especially effective because of the fact that you are utilizing the saponins in the oats which are extremely effective at cleaning pores; the honey works to do the same in addition to calming and revitalizing the skin.  Try this mask to clean and calm your skin (didn't know you could do both at the same time did you):

  • 1/2 cup of oats (any kind will do)
  • 1/2 cup of hot water
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender (I tried to use the hand blender, but the oats wouldn't break down, and who wants a lumpy mask)
  • Let the mixture cool
  • Apply to skin
  • Wait ten minutes
  • Rinse
