Oats for Your Face

Time for another skincare recipe! I’m trying to post these every Sunday. I figure after the weekend our skin usually needs a little help so it can face the week ahead… 😉

This one is a face mask- it’s made of Greek yogurt & raw oats.

   (panda face mask coming soon)
What You’ll Need

  • 2 tablespoons of plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of raw oats

Mix the two ingredients in a small bowl until they’re blended together. 

I pretty much guessed on the amounts..you may find that you have to adjust them. You’ll just want to make sure there’s more yogurt than oats do it doesn’t become too dry. 

After washing your face, spread a thin layer on your face! Avoid the eye area for the well-being of your experience.. 

Leave the mask on for about 10 minutes. Once it’s dry, wash it off with warm water (or a wash cloth). Then continue with your nightly ritual of lotion/toner/chocolate, whatever you do! 

Why Yogurt & Oats?

Greek yogurt is loaded with protein. Seems weird that this is a good reason to put food on your face.. But your skin cells need protein in order to look their best! The yogurt’s protein supply will help your pores get in shape & stay tight; while the probiotics will help to fight any bacteria.

Oatmeal. I really love oats so I just threw them in for fun… Jusssst kidding! They help to exfoliate your face in this mask. Oat exfoliating is something you can do more often then a regular exfoliating because the oats are very gentle

Typical exfoliation opens your pores, but this mask has the magic touch of Greek yogurt so it’ll actually help your face maintain elasticity! Who knew the things in your food pantry could do such wonders for your skin?! 

I guess you can think of this mask as a workout for your face…? I’d suggest adding this to your skincare regime at least twice throughout the week.

Enjoy your fresh, smooth skin!! 

peace & all good~
