Spa Saturday: Homemade Oatmeal Facial Mask

One thing I intend to make a priority this year is treating myself to more pampering time. I spend so much time taking care of everyone else, I seem to be my last priority. That really needs to change! So, that is what has inspired Spa Saturday. Every Saturday I'll share a simple way to pamper yourself at home, without breaking the bank.

The oatmeal Facial Mask is a trick I learned from my home economics teacher. The recipe is very simple.

Oatmeal Facial Mask

1/2 cup oatmeal, either quick cooking or regular

1/4 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt, I usually use buttermilk as it's what I have on hand most often

2 Tablespoons honey

Toss the oatmeal in the blender or food processor and process until it's a finely ground powder.

Combine wet ingredients and mix.

Add oatmeal to wet mixture and mix until you have a wet paste.

To use, simply moisten your face with warm water. Smooth oatmeal mask all over your face and even your neck if you desire. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. This will leave your skin soft and glowing!

Hmmm that's interesting...don't know if I would like the feel of buttermilk or yogurt on my face :-D

I know the stores carry facial products but there are so many to chose from, how do we know what works and what doesn't, ya know?

YHWH bless & keep you,

How do crush it into powder without a food blender or processor?

I don't have either.
