The main goal of this (a bit ridiculous sounding, at least at first) mask is to help the skin keep its flexibility (skin tonus), or clear up problems like skiing flaking, the spread of acne or dryness of the skin. It was also shown that Oatmeal Facial Mask helps with the elimination of smaller wrinkles (which means it doesn’t have the power to take away 10 years from your face), pigmentation spots or an unhealthy tan in the face area.
The main reason why this mesh we often see on our tables during breakfast time (and rarely on our faces) works good things for the skin is the fact that it is rich in antioxidants, mainly in the form of beta-glucan. A lot of mayor cosmetically companies induce this substance in their product lines, and many softening, rejuvenating and hydrating products include beta-glucan.
On the other hand, Oatmeal Facial Mask doesn’t come from a big cosmetic lab and wasn’t sold with a large price tag. But this doesn’t automatically make it less effective. In the domain of skin care, especially skin rejuvenation, a simple oatmeal mask could be a big help. Here is what you need for making it at home:
A teaspoon of yogurt or kefir (keefir)
A teaspoon of blended oat flakes (do it in a regular blender so you make a fine powder, or close to it)
A teaspoon of honey (read here more about honey and its skin care properties)
All you have to do is to mix these components and apply it on the previously cleaned skin. You can include, apart from the face itself, the neck and the upper chest area. Keep it on for 20 to 25 minutes, and then clean it off with warm water. Oatmeal Facial Mask will clean your skin very thoroughly, but will also improve the outlines of your face (by making the skin tighter fit on bones and muscles underneath). As a skin care home made masks, the simple oatmeal obviously has a lot to offer.
