Homemade Oatmeal Face Mask with Manuka honey

Hello lovely readers,

I don’t know about you but I can feel autumn in the air. I have to say, I’. quite excited. London is very pretty at this time of the year, so there are many walks planned on my agenda. On the other note, the change of the weather and recent lack of a good night sleep has affected my skin quite a bit. Breakouts, occasional spots and dullness have taken over. That made me do the “Oatmeal face mask with Manuka honey” already twice this week, so I thought I’ll share it with you as it’s really good for the skin.

OATMEAL  FACE MASK

INGREDIENTS:

  1. 2- 3 spoons of oat flakes (plain)
  2. 2,5 spoons of milk
  3. 2 teaspoons of Manuka honey

METHOD:

Mix the oats, milk and honey together until all the ingredients will be combined. Put on the face and neck for about 25-20 minutes.

TIP: Put the towel/ or dirty T-shirt under your head before applying the mask. It’s very likely that some bits will fall off and land on the pillow/couch.  Before removing the mask, massage the covered skin as it can be used also as a delicate face peeling

Helps slow the signs of ageing by drawing moisture into the skin and hydrating, moisturising, nourishing, rejuvenating and restoring its natural barrier.

I would definitely recommend it when the skin is a bit “down” and needs a little kick. It works perfectly for me. My skin is very sensitive and reacts to all sorts but this one is easy and the results are great!

Happy Saturday!
