This is a really easy face mask that makes your face soft and clean!
The only things you need are: dry oatmeal and some warm water!
Add just enough water to the dry oatmeal to form a paste. Massage it into your skin. Rinse off and your skin will be soft and free of those nasty dead skin cells!!!

When I do the oatmeal mask, I usually leave it on for a few minutes (leaving a trail of oatmeal flakes around the house  Tongue) and then rinse it off. It's soothing to your skin -- that's why it helps poison ivy. It makes your face SOOO soft!

Hahah, I'm getting flashbacks of oatmeal baths when I had the chicken pox. I have such dry skin, I'll have to try that.

Hmmm... it might go bad. I suppose you could can it, but at that point would any of the oatmeal's soothing properties be left?? I don't know...

What about putting the dry oat meal with a bit of dry milk.  (2 parts oatmeal to 1 part dry milk)  Put than in a jar with a pretty little tea spoon or scoop & add direcrtion to mix some with water.

Here's my version of an oatmeal mask. I always keep a jar on hand filled with these dry ingredients and mix with water in a small bowl whenever my skin needs a little extra lift.

Rock Receptionist's Oatmeal Mask

Ground Oatmeal - 2 parts
Ground Dried Lavender - 1 part
Ground Dried Chamomile - 1 part
Bentonite Clay - 1 part

I have an electric grinder just for herbs but you could use a mortar & pestle to get the oatmeal and herbs ground up nicely. The bentonite clay is a good way to balance the pH in skin, oatmeal draws out excess oils, and the chamomile and lavender help moisturize, as well as relax the senses. Sometimes I add ground dried rose petals as a bonus and to add some more color to the mixture, if I'm giving it as a gift in a clear jar.

All amounts are approximate. I recommend using organic ingredients, because your face deserves it!
