  • It is full of antioxidants, great for slowing down aging.
  • It is soothing and moisturizing.
  • Honey opens up pores making them easy to unclog and clarify.

Preparation:

Add one tablespoon each of:

  • Ground oats
  • Yogurt
  • Honey

Mix them together into a lump free paste.

Application::

Apply the mask on your cleansed face. Start with circular motions and apply a thick layer so that it takes time to set and dry.
Leave for 20 minutes and wash with lukewarm water.

Quick Tips:

  1. Make sure your face is properly washed and makeup is removed before you apply the mask.
  2. Clean your face with lukewarm water before you apply the mask, it opens up the pores and helps the mask shrink in and clean better.
  3. Apply a moisturiser after washing off the mask, as your skin might feel tighter.
