We often fork out top dollar in search for the holy-grail beauty product, when it could be sitting in the kitchen all this time! I am talking about a DIY oatmeal face mask, made with the cheapest and most common kitchen ingredients (oats, honey & water).

It is all-natural, cheap and only 5 minutes to make. Oatmeal and honey mask is well-known to be beneficial for acne-prone, oily or combination skin; though almost any skin condition will benefit from this concoction as it provides gentle exfoliation & cleansing.
Oatmeal Honey Face Mask
Properties: provides deep cleansing and gentle exfoliation; combats acne; gentle enough to suit most sensitive skin-types; smoothens skin;
Suitable for: Any skin type, sensitive skin, oily, combination and/or acne-prone skin
Tip: Do a skin patch test on a small area on your skin, before trying out any new product.
Frequency: Can be used daily
Warning: This mask is certainly both messy to apply and to rinse off, but very well worth the effort! Your skin will be gently exfoliated with a dewy glow after rinsing the mask off. I highly recommended that you lie down in bed while doing the mask, and/or do it before shower. The longer you allow the mask to sit on your face (I recommend 20-30 minutes), the harder it is to remove it, which is a good thing because you will be massaging your face in circular motion to loosen the mask and in doing so, you are gently exfoliating your skin at the same time.
I just tried this mask and now my skin feels so soft. Not to mention the soothing affect oatmeal has. I will have to try it again to see if it will help my breakouts!
Hi, is it ok to cook the oatmeal then add the honey will this have the same effect
Hi, it’s not necessary to cook the oatmeal.
Hi, what if we don’t have any grinder? I just thought its the reason why she asked if its alright to just cook it..
don’t cook the oatmeal. If you don’t have a grinder, you can use the oatmeal flakes as it is. It will be more difficult to apply but I think it gives additional exfoliation as it’s rougher.
Will it help me get rid of my white heads, blackheads and spots/blemishes?. What’s the benefit of using moisturizer and toner after? My face is really sensitive. It doesn’t like any bar soap, so I’m afraid to use toner and moisturizer because I tried one before and it just worsen my problem :(
Witch Hazel is a excellent natural toner.
everyone has different skin condition so results will vary. you have to experiment and find a regime that works for you.
Hi, I’ve just tried this for the dermatitis (eczema) on my face, and it stopped the itching for a few hours and made it a bit softer! Just wondering, how often do people use this face mask?
Everyone skin type is different. You can do it once a week, or as often as desired (and tolerated).
