Oat and Aloe Mask

Whenever your skin needs a bit of soothing, or some extra hydration, this blend of oatmeal, milk and aloe vera is perfect.  I like to use it if I'm in the middle of a breakout (hello, PMS) because it helps pull the redness out of the skin and helps get it on it's way toward healing.

Oat and Aloe Mask
1 tablespoon finely ground oats (here's how to make your own)
1 teaspoon powdered milk
2 teaspoons aloe vera gel

In a small bowl, mix the oats and powdered milk until well blended.  Stir in the aloe vera gel and mix well.  Let this mixture set for about 5 minutes to allow the aloe to hydrate the dry ingredients.  If it gets too thick, you can add a touch of water before you apply. 

Apply to your face and neck.  Let set for 5 to 10 minutes.  Remove with a warm cloth and rinse your face well.

With the addition of the aloe vera, this mask doesn't keep well.  It's best made fresh each time.

If you have an aloe vera plant, you could use fresh gel.  You may have to play around with the measurements, depending on how viscous or watery your fresh gel is.

Yield: 1 mask
