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 Mask

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.

    Oh, oatmeal mask is a great idea! Was wondering what to do with my big bag of oatmeal except eating oatmeal everyday. Thanks for the tip!

    Oatmeal masks make my face feel really fresh/wonderful afterwards and I haven’t done one in awhile so thanks for the reminder and recipe! Going to make this one sometime soon. P.s. That little doll prop setup is so cute!

    How I wish I am the one in the photo: lying down, relaxing, with homemade oatmeal mask on my face for 30 minutes (that is a luxury leh)!!

    Good for you to make all these homemade face mask. It is definitely better than the commercial chemical loaded ones.

    Oatmeal is great for moisturizing and soothing especially when you add honey.

    Great page and recipes thanks

    Is it normal for my face to feel itchy/ slight burning sensation on left side of my face near the eye area when i put on the mask? After i removed the mask my face feels very soft and moisturised :)

    Hi, good tip! May I know which grinder you use?

    Definitely use the Citrus Clear Grapefruit Spot Treatment – you can use it like a mask! That is how I have been using it with great results. It will make your skin feel smoother, shrink pores little by little, and help clear current breakout with each use. Do not be discouraged if your skin breaks out a little more than usual at first. That just means it is drawing stuff out of your pores, which is exactly what it is supposed to. If you have oily skin (especially in your t-zone), BUY THIS. It will help :)

    My skin is very dry and dull due to some health issues I was having. How often should the mask be applied?
