Take your cup of oatmeal...
And mill your oats. It's ok if you leave them whole but if they're small the mask will stay better on your face. Just pulse a couple times.
See? There is still some whole oats but a lot of it is small.
Add the egg...
Add the yogurt ( add 2 tbs first).
Add the honey...
And add the juice from the lime and mix it all together with a fork. If its too stiff add a little more yogurt. Don't make it too runny because it'll just slide off your face.
Wash your face first and apply to your face. Wear a headband to keep from getting in your hair. You'll begin to feel the mask get hard. Once it's stiff, wash off with warm water.
You can store this for about 7 days. Warm it up a bit before applying. You can apply your toner and cream after you rinse the mask off or just leave your face alone.
This mask helps to brighten your skin, make it soft. If you tend to break out, as I do, this mask helps bring down the redness & swelling. After a few days, in my case, pimples/zits start to dry out.
Use 2-4 times a week. It takes about 15-30 minutes to dry. Follow your usual skin care routine. Even if you have no breakouts you can totally still use this. Hope this helps you out there!
