Milk and Honey Oatmeal Mask

Need a moisturizing and exfoliating mask, but you're short on time and money?  We can help!

First, gather your ingredients - it doesn't take much!  For two masks, you'll need:
  • 1 tbsp oats
  • 2 tsp milk
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 drop tea tree oil (optional)
Mix the oats, milk and honey together.   It should be slightly watery and smell very delicious.

If you want to add some tea tree oil, just use a toothpick to deposit a tiny drop into the oatmeal mixture.  A little bit of tea tree oil goes a long way!

Now simply apply it to your face with your hands.  It's pretty messy, so you might want to do this step over the sink.

The oats will exfoliate and calm while the milk adds moisture and the honey works as a humectant (that's just a fancy way of saying it helps to hold in moisture).  The tea tree oil has natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, so it is great for treating and preventing acne.

Once the mask is applied, keep it on until it starts to feel tight and itchy.  Then simply rinse it away and enjoy your fresh and invigorated skin!
