Super Simple Oatmeal Mask / Scrub

Oatmeal masks are one of my all-time favorites.  They're perfect for all skin types, and are so easy and inexpensive to make.

I love this recipe because it's super easy and I always have the needed ingredients in my kitchen.  Plus, it makes a great gentle scrub too.

The powdered milk gives the mask a creamier consistency.  This oatmeal mask base is great to use on its own, or you can add dried herbs, herbal tea, clays, and other ingredients.  What will you add to dress up your mask?

Super Simple Oatmeal Mask/Scrub
1 cup uncooked oats
3 tablespoons nonfat dry milk (powdered milk)

In a blender, mix uncooked oats for approximately 30 seconds.  Transfer to bowl and stir in powdered milk.

Pour into a container with a lid.  It looks super cute packaged in a mason jar!

To use as a scrub:  Take approximately one teaspoon mixture into your palm.  Dampen with just enough water to make a paste.  Massage over a dampened face for about 20 to 30 seconds and then rinse.  To make a cleansing facial wash, squeeze a dab of your fav facial cleanser into your palm with the oatmeal mixture.

To use as a mask:  Mix one tablespoon mask to two tablespoons warm water.  Let set for two minutes.  Apply to face and neck using circular motions.  Leave on 10-15 minutes.  Work off with a warm, moist washcloth.  Rinse well.

Yield: approximately 18-24 treatments
