This is my favorite face mask that I make often at home. This homemade oatmeal face mask recipe made with oatmeal and honey is good enough to eat. Regular use of this mask prevents many disorders of the skin. It treats acne, acne scars, dry skin, rashes, rosacea and pimples. It is very effective for treating sun burn and redness of the skin.
We get only instant oatmeal in our local town and I always make this pack with it. Originally I was making this pack with gram flour. Once I didn’t have gram flour at home and I simply substituted gram flour with ground oatmeal and I absolutely loved it.
I have used home made yogurt to mix it but if you have store bought yogurt then please use that (just use one without any flavorings and color). Ground oatmeal is very gentle on the skin and when combined with yogurt and honey, it makes a great face mask.
This oatmeal face mask can be safely used by people with very sensitive skin too. If you don’t have time to wait for the mask to dry, then use it as a scrub. Just a take a small portion of the mix and rub gently on the face and wash off. Refrigerate the left overs to use it for another day. Though the yogurt will turn sour (even if refrigerated), it can still be used on the face.
