Using ingredients found in your kitchen, you can give yourself a facial that is almost the same as what you’d pay for at the spa. Natural ingredients make for the best facials. One of the best ingredients to cleanse and moisturize your skin is oatmeal. Oatmeal is a common ingredient in many body products. Here are a few oatmeal based facials that will help cleanse and moisturize your skin.
The first recipe we’ll discuss here includes half a cup of dry oatmeal ground into a powder with your blender. In another bowl mix together 1/4 cup yogurt and a few tablespoons of pure honey. Next you will combine all of these ingredients together in a grinder or blender to a thick paste.
Combine a fourth cup of oatmeal, a fourth cup of almonds, a tablespoon of cornstarch and a tablespoon of chamomile flowers (or a tablespoon of chamomile flower tea). After blending the ingredients together with a blender or a food processor, put the mixture into glass jars. To use it on your face, take a couple teaspoons of the mixture in your hand and add a little bit of water to form a paste. Then use your fingers to spread the paste onto your face in soft circular motions. When spreading over your face, avoid your eyes, and then rinse off with warm water and a soft washcloth.
If you have particularly dry skin, you can use this recipe. Use a tablespoon of dry oatmeal to massage your skin first. Next moisturize your face with a mixture that is made up of half of a mashed up ripe banana and a couple of ounces of plain yogurt. Avoid the eyes as you spread this evenly over your skin. Rinse this mixture off with warm tepid water after it’s sat on your skin for 20 minutes or more.
If you have particularly dry skin, you can use this recipe. First, massage your face with a tablespoon of dry oatmeal. Apply a mixture of mashed banana and yogurt as you would a regular moisturizer.
