Soothing OatMeal Mask to prepare your skin for a NJ Winter
Soothing Oatmeal Mask
Here are the Ingredients you’ll need to make this calming mask:
• ¼ cup of oatmeal
• 1 tablespoon of raw honey
• ¼ – ½ cup of warm chamomile or another herbal tea.)
• 4-6 drops of essential oils (rose and lavender are my favorites)
In order for this mask to be effective, you first need to grind the oatmeal in either a coffee, spice grinder or food processor. Grind until you get a course, flour consistency. Next, stir in the honey slowly, adding the tea slowly to get a thick paste. After that, you want to add the essential oils and mix thoroughly. Apply with clean fingers, a back of a spoon or cotton pads. Leave the mixture on for about a half hour. (The mask should be dry.) Rinse with warm water to remove, revealing hydrated, happy skin. Follow with toner and moisturizer.
For maximum results, it’s best to do these masks once or twice a week. And it’s a good idea to do these after you’ve had a steamy shower. That’s because the steam opens pores, allowing the organic mask to penetrate deeper into the skin. Because the ingredients are fresh and spoil easily, keep them in the refrigerator in an air-tight container and pitch after about a week. (You don’t want to put decomposing produce on your skin. Freshness is key.)
