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.

    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).
