Skincare need not expensive. Derma is. But save those pennies and get into your kitchen to find natural, economical yet effective remedies for gorgeous looking skin. Here I share to you how to make your own oatmeal mask for clear, supple and soft skin. Read more pls.
Makeup only comes next to basic skin care. Skin care must be a priority as makeup is useless when you don't take care of your skin. I have previously talked about My Basic Skin Care Routine here. And with the 3 steps in skin care, Facial Exfoliation or Scrubbing is also incorporated twice or thrice a week. Right after scrubbing would be the best time to apply facial masks as the pores are still open thus nutrients from masks are best absorbed.

The main ingredients for this natural beauty recipe: oatmeal, brown sugar and honey.

Oatmeal is not only food for the tummy but for the skin as well. It's got many benefits for the skin. First, it's a gentle exfoliant that buffs away dirt and dead skin cells to generate new and fresh new ones. Second, it moisturizes dry skin by retaining moisture. Third, it's rich in amino acids that'll help clear out and repair blemished and damaged skin. Fourth, it's hypo allergenic and suits any skin types.

Honey is a natural food and medicine. It is the most used and basic ingredient for many organic and natural beauty recipes. Similar with oatmeal, it's a humectant or agent that maintains skin hydration by locking moisture in. Because it's a natural product, it is very rich in antioxidants. Current research also claims that it can serve as a natural sunscreen. 

Brown sugar in this recipe will serve as an exfoliant that'll help remove dirt and impurities from the skin. 

Procedure
1. Blend a cup of oatmeal.

4. Squeeze or pour down the honey then mix until you get something like in the photo below. Not too dry but just enough for a liquid-y mixture.

5. Store it in a sealed jar and keep it in the fridge. This would probably last you up to 1-2 months or more.

Every after you exfoliate, apply this face mask right on. Gently massage for a few seconds, then leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse. You'll immediately see a difference after. You'll notice that your skin has become smoother, clearer and fresh.

The oatmeal mask I made in this post is almost finished and I used it up for more than a month. Every other day after I do facial scrubbing, I massage this then leave on for 20 minutes or more. After only 10 days, my friends complimented that my skin has gone smoother and clearer. I noticed that too and I am so happy with the result. I honestly swear to this beauty regimen. 

Whatever your skin condition is, give this a try then let me know the result. I hope this post helps you get gorgeous skin with safe, economical and natural ingredients.

  1. I love DIY masks! This seems like a pretty standard formula and I believe in it 'cause they say honey slows the growth of bacteria so yay for clean facials! I'm scared of other recipes cause I wouldn't want to put mouldy or germy gunk all over my face!
