I tried this recipe with my mom and we both loved it! Our faces were so soft after, what a nice end to the day!

Ingredients:

    • Rolled oats or oat bran. I found this Scottish Oatmeal at the health food store and decided to try it.

    • Unsweetened coconut (this part is optional if you are allergic or just don’t like coconut, just add more oats)

    • Natural yogurt (not vanilla!) I picked up the Greek kind, it’s high in fat which is what you want for a facial.

    • Honey! As you can see I have the local, organic variety, called Honey Bunny. You can use regular honey, I just prefer to try and use as many organic products as I can when I’m making skin products

    • Lemon juice. I had NO lemons and had to substitute for ReaLemon…

How to make it:

    • In a small bowl add about 1/8 cup of oats and 1/8 cup of coconut.

  • Then add about 1 tablespoon of yogurt, 1 teaspoon of honey and 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.

  • Stir well to combine.

  • Apply to face and rub in a circular motion, avoiding the eye area. Allow to sit on face for about 5-10 minutes.
  • Rinse off with warm water rubbing in a circular motion.
After enjoying this mask, your skin will feel so soft! The yogurt and oatmeal nourished and calmed the skin while the lemon juice helps to lighten any dark spots. While the honey heals, moisturizes and protects.
