This four-ingredient oatmeal face mask is perfect for a DIY spa night!
Making your own DIY products not only saves you money, but also time. Plus, when you do-it-yourself (DIY), you know exactly what is in the product you made.
This oatmeal face mask is made in just a couple of minutes and contains nourishing anti-inflammatory ingredients.
Oatmeal is a common ingredient for skin because it helps soak up excess oil, which makes it ideal for face masks.
Because oats can also be anti-inflammatory, they also help remove dead skin. Which means with the gentle exfoliation, your face is left silky smooth.
Honey on the other hand, is antibacterial which helps clean your skin and any open pores. It also smells amazing and is an awesome way to hydrate the skin. It’s perfect used in a lip scrub, too!
The apple cider vinegar helps remove dead skin but also helps clear out pores which makes your face less prone to acne.
That said, some people have reactions to apple cider vinegar. While there is only a teeny tiny bit in this recipe, just like in this clay mask, I always recommend people to do a test on their wrist before placing the mixture on their face. This way, if your skin is irritated it’s not all over your face.
The combination of the ingredients is what makes this oatmeal face mask awesome. It’s easy to whip up and helps remove dry or dead skin while also adding hydration.
It makes two servings, so either cut the recipe in half for a one-time use of invite a friend over for a spa night and rock the oatmeal face mask together!
Ingredients in the Mask
- ½ + 2 Tablespoons oats
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons raw honey
- 4 Tablespoons boiling water
Easy Oatmeal Face Mask
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 tbs oats
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbs raw honey
- 4 tbs boiling water
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Mash the oats on the side of the bowl to release their juices.
- Let sit for five minutes so it becomes sticky and the oats absorb the liquid. And let it cool.
- To Use: use your hands to smear the mask onto your face. If you left it chunky (see note below) this will take some time. Try to even out the clumps.
- Let sit for 10-15 minutes. At the end of the time, rub the oatmeal in just a bit more with your hands. Then, use a warm cloth to remove the bulk of the mask (you don’t want chunks of oats going down your sink!) and then rinse face with warm water to remove fully. Pat skin dry and follow up with your favorite lotion!
