Breakfast on Your Facemask

Greetings from my sister's home in Brooklyn, NYC. I'm here for a few weeks anxiously awaiting the arrival of her first baby. While we wait for little Henry to show his face, we decided to pamper our own. My sister whipped us up a batch of her homemade Oatmeal Face Mask.  It's super easy! You probably already have most of the ingredients.  She used old fashioned oats, plain yogurt and honey.  This mask works best after a shower when your pores are all loose and needing a little nourishment.  My skin felt so soft after letting this concoction sit on my face for about 15 minutes.

Gather Ingredients:

Grind up about a 1/4 cup of oats in your coffee grinder.

Add a heaping tablespoon of yogurt.

Squirt in about a tablespoon of honey. 

Mix it up and smear it on.

Stephanie says to be creative! If it's good for you to eat, it's probably great to put on your skin as well. Use other things in your kitchen and throw those in (bananas, avocado, egg yolk for moisture, egg white for toning). Just try to use amounts that end up giving you a paste-like consistency that will stay on your face. Have fun with it and remember to pamper yourself before you pamper your baby. 

Pampering (not Pampers) is free and free is cheap.
