4 DIY Superfood Facial Masks for a Glowy Skin

When talking about skin care options, we can’t but keep on emphasizing the utmost importance of using natural products rather than the chemically enriched and not so preferable options, which are available at a considerably high price. Thus, in any situation and for any skin problem there is definitely a solution easily prepared of natural products, which are also financially beneficial. One of the most frequently occurring skin problems is the dehydration and many other such negative factors, which make the natural and healthy glow of your skin, fade away. In order not to let it happen, here we have some easily prepared DIY superfood facial masks all made of natural and absolutely harmless ingredients, unlike the chemical products sold in the stores.

Smoothing Oatmeal Honey Mask

Ingredients:

• ¼ cup of oatmeal
• 1 tablespoon of raw honey
• ¼ – ½ cup of warm rooibos tea
• 4-6 drops of essential oils (rose, frankincense, lavender, or geranium)

Preparation:

For this mask, you will first have to grind oatmeal in a coffee or spice grinder until you get a coarse-flour like mixture. Then, just stir in the honey very slowly, adding the tea to get the consistency of a smooth paste this time. After adding the essential oils just mix everything well. When applying this mixture to the face you can either use a cotton ball or your clean fingers. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes until dry and then rinse the mask off with lukewarm water.
