SkinTreats; Delish honey&oats facemask

Hey my lovelies! I've been feeling not too great this week at all as i had/have been dealing with a throat infection. Which means i have had plenty of bed rest and have literally abandoned all skin products (even moisturisers)! Whenever I'm ill my skin suffers too and not only was it extremely dry but i also had a spot on my forehead and chin. This always annoys me as i rarely put too much effort in with my skin as it's quiet clear, but regardless i knew i had to make this delish face mask to revive my skin (and me) for the rest of the week!

Here's what you'll need,

  • 3tbsp oats, I'm using the co ops natural oats but you can use any

  • 1tbsp honey, the squeezy bottle is so much easier to work with, thanks mum!

  • 1tbsp yogurt, this will make it into a paste, I'm using a low fat one but a full fat one would probs be better for your face that it!

  • a lid of milk! And yes i am collecting the cravendale milk cartons for the backpacks :')
  • Honey - helps to protect skin from damage of sun, rejuvenates and refreshes dull skin, treats minor acne and moisturises even the driest of skins!
    Milk -  Milk also supplies energy to our skin, it has proteins, calcium, lactose, fat, vitamin A, B12, D, and zinc. Milk soothes and nourishes the skin and the natural ingredients in milk hydrate, help to diminish redness and prevent irritated skin. It will also give your skin a glow.
    Yogurt - contains zinc, calcium, vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, protein and yeast. Yogurt adds enzymes and oils to the skin - so it works as a natural moisturiser. It also helps to reduce pore size, give a glow to the skin and overall texture.
    Oats - soothes redness and irritated skin, relieves dry/itchy skin, natural acne remedy, exfoliates the skin of dry and dead skin cells.

    All you need to do now is mix them all together and apply to clean skin free of makeup. I normally do this in the mornings before a shower so i can pamper my skin after with cleanser and moisturiser!
