DIY Chocolate Oatmeal Face Mask: There are so many DIY facials on Pinterest that we decided that we should start trying some of them out. If we can save a little money and use products that we already have in our cupboard and get benefits, we say bonus!
Today we tried the Chocolate Oatmeal Face Mask that is supposed to help with sun damage.
1/4 Cup Honey
1/3 Cup Cocoa
2 Tbls. Heavy Cream or Sour Cream
3 Tbls. Old Fashioned Oatmeal (powdered in food processor)
Mix all ingredients together until blended completely. With your fingers or a fan brush apply the mask onto your face. If you are using your fingers massage the paste into your skin.
After face is completely covered let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water.
Why does this work? Cocoa powder is a natural antioxidant that protects the skin from UV damage. Oatmeal is a gentle exfoliate and honey is a great antibacterial ingredient.
Shirley’s skin looked good and was really soft when it was done. We will definitely try this again.
