Oatmeal and Milk Facial for Softer Skin

By all means start your day with a nutrient-rich bowl of oatmeal. Oats are high in B vitamins, which are important for skin health, as well as fiber — a high-fiber diet is a must for clear skin. When you make your bowl of morning cereal, set a little extra grain aside for an oat, honey, and milk facial. Have your breakfast and then put on this skin-softening face mask while you drink your morning cup of tea and read the paper with the sun streaming through (or rain pattering against) the kitchen window. This is the best way to start your day for body, mind, and skin.

Oats are not only nourishing, but they are also softening. They are rich in saponins, which have an emollient effect on the skin. Oats are beneficial for improving your complexion, but they are also great in the bath for softening the entire body. Add a little honey to this face mask recipe, which helps to keep the skin supple. Then add milk, a source of softening fatty acids for the skin, to make a sweet and creamy oatmeal and milk facial for your skin. To make this skin treatment you will need:

  • 2 tablespoons of whole rolled oats or steel cut oats
  • 1 tablespoon of raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon of whole milk or cream

To get the best out of oats for your skin, pulverize them in the blender or coffee grinder for ten seconds. Broken down, it will be easier for the skin to absorb the nourishing properties. With a spoon, mix the oat 'dust,' honey, and milk. Whip together until you have a creamy texture. Smear over your skin and enjoy your english breakfast tea and morning sunshine. This face mask can be difficult to rinse off. Use a warm, wet wash cloth to gently remove the mask. Dry your face and then put on your normal daily moisturizer and enjoy the day with a soft, smooth complexion.
