Oat Avocado Face Mask

July 6, 2013

 


Well I have to say, even if you don't make oat milk (which I still think you should) you need to try this oat facial mask thing. Its pretty sweet.

 

What you need

  • 1/2 cup soaked oats (soak for 20min to overnight - or use leftover oats from oat milk

  • 1/4 avocado

  • 1 tbsp honey

Melt the honey if its not runny and mix them altogether. I didn't do a great job on mashing the avocado enough but maybe you have more patience than I do. 

 

Its still on my face as I write this and its feelin' good. I can practically feel my skin becoming more radiant and my wrinkles diminishing ;)


Sam looked up from his computer to see my face covered in oats...


Sam - What are you doing?

Sus - Just made a mask.

Sam - Whats it called?

Sus - Oat Avocado Honey Mask.

Sam - What does it do?

Sus - ... pause... umm.....Im not sure.

 

We laughed at that for a bit. I'm pretty gullible so if someone says put oats and honey on your face, it is good for you, I wont question it.


Maybe I should find out why. Here is what I found.


OATS:

  • Oatmeal contains 18 essential amino acids - which rebuild tissue and promote healing

  • Can alleviate rashes and allergic reactions

  • Oatmeal helps to retain moisture on your skin

AVOCADO

  • Contains vitamin A and C which help to prevent aging. 

  • Amazing source of fatty acids, great for moisturizing the skin

  • Contains anti-microbial properties, great for acne.

HONEY

  • Great skin cleanser

  • Assists skin to rejuvenate and stay healthy

  • Very effective moisturizer for the skin

 

Have fun!!
