There’s no reason to spend money at the spa for a facial that you can make for yourself with ingredients in your kitchen. The best facials use only natural ingredients. Oatmeal is particularly effective at cleansing and moisturizing skin. Oatmeal in commonly used in the making of many body products. Here are a few oatmeal based facials that will help cleanse and moisturize your skin.
First grind up half a cup of dry oatmeal in your coffee grinder or food processor until it is smooth and powder like. Set this powder aside and prepare a separate bowl with a quarter cup of plain yogurt and a few tablespoons of honey. Blend all ingredients into a paste.
Spread the mixture onto your face, taking care to avoid the skin around your eyes. Use a warm wet washcloth to remove this mix after around fifteen minutes. That feels nice now doesn’t it?
The next recipe we have to share includes two tablespoons of cooked oats and a tablespoon or plain unflavored yogurt. Now stir these two together taking care to mash the oats well. The oats should be broken down thoroughly prior to application. If the mixture seems too thick use a bit more yogurt or perhaps some milk to thin it out. Spread onto skin just as you would a cream taking care to avoid your eyes and let sit. Once this mask dries rinse it with warm water. After you’ve completed these steps follow with a good moisturizer.
You can also try dampening three tablespoons of oatmeal with a bit of water and adding two teaspoons of witch hazel. Mix together, then apply to your face with upward, circular motions. Let it sit on your face for a moment or two and then rinse thoroughly with clean water. Pat your face dry with a soft and dry towel.
You probably already have all the ingredients needed to make these recipes. Not only will you save money by making your own facials but you will have beautiful skin. Considering you can get the same results in the comfort of your home, why spend extra money at a spa?
