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.

@galinda make a little extra to eat while you enjoy your mask! Oatmeal sounds like the wonder food for skin!
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!
My skin isnt exactly acne prone, but it does get oily. I'll have to try this out! technically this face mask is edible, right? Any tips on where to find colloidal oatmeal? Is that something I can buy in the supermarket?
