Oatmeal is also great for acne-prone skin because it absorbs oil from the skin’s surface. The fats contained in oatmeal add to its emollient activity whilst improving the itch of dry skin. All of which makes oatmeal a perfect ingredient for facial masks.
In making this mask, it is best to use Quaker Oats or plain oats without additives. You may crush or grind the oat flakes to make the mask less messy.
Prepare oat meal with hot water. Allow to cool. Apply to face and affected areas. Leave on for 10- 20 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
