Ahh the simplicity of summer: longer days, warmer nights, cold drinks and lots of family time are what I look forward to most. It’s my second favorite time of year (Christmas takes the #1 spot), my heart feels so happy and full! To keep yourself healthy and happy this summer, why not indulge in simple luxuries that keep your skin healthy, too?
Make a Homemade Oatmeal Facial Mask!
Keep the face fresh and beautiful at home with this delectable oatmeal moisturizing mask. This is one of the simplest facial masks out, using just a few simple items that you probably already have at home. Oatmeal is great for your skin, containing properties that keep the skin moist and glowing after every mask.
Try out this recipe, compliments of Dawn Hand Renewal, which is perfect to use when it’s time to clean up in the kitchen.
DIY Oatmeal Facial Mask Ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon ground oatmeal
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1 teaspoon milk
To Make the Mask:
Mash the banana in a mixing bowl until it’s completely lump free. Add the oatmeal and milk, and combine all ingredients thoroughly.
Wash your face with luke warm water to open the pores, and pat dry with a soft towel. Rub the mask in a circular motion onto your face, making a slightly thick layer so the mask can soak into your skin. Leave the mask on for 10 – 15 minutes and wash it off with plain warm water. Splash cold water on your face to close your pores and pat to dry.
When you’re all finished with the mask, clean up using Dawn Hand Renewal Dish Soap. It not only powers away grease and leaves dishes sparkling clean, but it keeps your hands soft and moisturized, too! My hands felt noticeably soft after washing the dishes, no need to worry about dry, rough hands this summer. Your skin will thank you.
