Oatmeal Honey Face Mask Recipe

In place of distilled water, you can also use home-made rose water toner (what I am using) or lemon juice. Rose water toner is suitable for all skin types, while lemon juice can help to combat acne and lighten scars.

Serves: 1

Prep Time: 5 mins


  • 1 tbsp oatmeal (rolled oats/instant oats/plain oats)
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 3/4 tsp distilled water add 1/4 tsp at a time


  1. Using a coffee grinder, grind the oatmeal to powder.
  2. In a small bowl, mix ground oatmeal, honey and distilled water, 1/4 tsp at a time, until a thick paste is formed.
  3. After cleansing, apply face mask onto entire face except eye area for 20-30 minutes. Rinse off the mask by gently massaging in circular motion to loosen. Follow up with your usual beauty routine (such as toner and moisturizer).

    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, 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).
