DIY Oatmeal Facial Mask

I’m always on a quest to improve my skin naturally. From what I’m eating to help how my skin looks to egg white masks, lemon juice to lighten my aging skin and even apple cider vinegar for acne. I want nice looking skin – don’t we all? I also would like to not spend a fortune. Really, who wants to spend a fortune on skin care and have a cabinet full of questionable products with questionable ingredients? Not me.

My new favorite natural and cheap facial mask is an oatmeal mask. Love it and if you’re an oatmeal lover like me you can have some for breakfast and plop some on your face. Why not!

Here is what you need:

1 ½ tablespoons of ground steel cut oatmeal

¼ teaspoon of sea salt

1 ½ tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

Here is what you need to do:

Mix the oatmeal and sea salt together until it is well combined and then stir in the olive oil. I like to heat the olive oil so it is warm, I love how that feels. Once mixed well apply all over to a clean face. Keep it on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse with warm water and pat dry.

The oatmeal mask will make your skin feel so smooth. It will help to remove excess dirt and improve your pores to help get rid of blackheads. Overall, I just love how my skin looks and feels when I’m done!

    Hello greenandcleanmom,

    Recent studies show great benefit of topical probiotics for the skin. I recommend applying a live natural yogurt (24hour home fermented is best) to the face as a mask and wash off 10 minutes later. If you are interested in this recent research, please contact me at and I will be happy to send you the studies.
