Oatmeal has the amazing ability to soothe itchy, dry and irritated skin. It is also great for acne-prone skin because it absorbs oil from the skin’s surface. All of which makes oatmeal a perfect ingredient for facial masks! Ingredients: - 1 tbsp oatmeal, finely ground - 1 tbsp live, organic yogurt (skip the flavored stuff) - A few drops of honey Preparation: - Add the yogurt to the oatmeal in a small bowl and mix together. - Warm a few drop of honey. To do this, warm a spoon under hot water for a minute, then add a few drops of honey to the spoon. - Stir the honey into the yogurt and oatmeal mixture. - Apply the mask to the face. - Leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse off with several splashes of warm water. Follow with a warm washcloth. - Apply moisturizer.

I have an oatmeal based lotion that is fantastic but too thick for using on my face. I'll try this out and see if it has the same effect!

@kristenadams it is also called Colloidal oatmeal. You can use your Quaker oats but the effect wont be the same. The fine oats will really moisturize your skin! @galinda I didn't really even notice! Haha! @caricakes oatmeal is definitely a skin miracle!

4 years ago·Reply technically this face mask is edible, right? Any tips on where to find colloidal oatmeal? Is that something I can buy in the supermarket?
