FACIALS FRIDAYS | Oatmeal, milk and honey mask





Another facials friday is upon us, and despite my busy schedule these days, i couldn't miss out on putting up this facials post.

This is the 'Oats, milk and honey mask', and it's ideal for dry skin.


INGRIDENTS


1 tablespoon of finely ground oatmeal

1 tablespoon of organic milk

2 teaspoons of pure honey


PREPARATION


Combine the oatmeal and milk together in small bowl until blended into a semi-smooth paste.

Add the honey into the mixture and blend together.

If needed, warm the honey for a few seconds to make it easier to stir into the paste.

Apply mask to your clean face and neck and leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water and gentle cleanser.

Follow with an oil-free moisturizer and eye cream.


BENEFITS OF THIS SCRUB

Gentle enough for all skin types, ideal for people prone to dry, flaky, and dull-looking skin. 


OATS BECAUSE.......




Oats contain healthy fats that add moisture and hydration to skin. Oats are a great exfoliator for the skin, removing cellular build-up (dead skin cells) and allowing new, fresh skin to surface.  They contain saponins that gently remove dirt, oil, and bacteria from your pores without clogging your pores and will leave your skin glowing long after you remove the mask


WHY MILK?



Organic milk is great for the skin because it will leave your skin glowing due to the low amount of acidity in it, which will restore your natural pH balance. It is also great for adding hydration to the skin and is great for soothing sunburns or irritated skin. It will add intense hydration to your skin without clogging your pores.

AND HONEY?



Honey is a wonderful antioxidant proven to help reduce impurities from the skin and help battle mild acne. It also helps restore skin’s texture due to its anti-microbial properties, and will help repair skin damage from the sun and daily environments.


That's all about the oats, milk and honey mask. I hope to bring another recipe your way soon.


Besos y abrazos.
