Not only is oatmeal a soothing snack for a cold winter night, it’s also the main ingredient in a facial mask that your skin will love. Whether you’re struggling with acne or redness, doing an oatmeal facial three times a week is a great way to get smoother, happier skin. This particular mixture includes honey, which is antibacterial and an egg, a vitamin-rich food that delays the aging process.

What you’ll need:

4 tablespoons of rolled oats
1 small bowl
1 tablespoon of honey
1 egg
1 spoon


Once you’ve gathered the ingredients, grind the rolled outs into a powder using a coffee grinder or blender. Put the oats in the bowl and mix them with the honey. Separate the yolk from the egg white, add the yolk to the mixture, and stir ingredients into a paste. Then spread the blended mixture evenly onto your face and let it set for 15 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water afterwards and then gently pat your face dry.
