Oatmeal is a natural exfoliator, which means it gently removes dead surface skin cells to reveal fresh, radiant skin underneath. It also mattifies skin by absorbing extra oil from pores and calms itching and other inflammatory skin conditions.
You will need:
  • 4 tablespoon Oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon Yoghurt
  • Hot water
Blend the oatmeal to a fine powder. Add hot water to form a paste that is not flowy or too thick. To this mixture add honey, yoghurt and lemon juice and mix well. Apply this paste evenly on your face. When the facial mask completely dries and tightens on skin, rinse off with lukewarm water.
Tip: Use a hydrating lightweight moisturizer like Forest Essentials Light Hydrating Moisturising Facial Gel Pure Aloe Vera to keep your skin looking healthy and fresh.
