Calming Oat Mask – Homemade Face Mask – Facial Friday #7

Calming Homemade Face Mask

It is Facial Friday and November is here.  Time to set the clocks back and slow down for the fall and winter season.  Lately, I have had itchy inflamed skin.  For reference, I have taken a no make up picture of what it looks like currently.  My skin is not perfect but compared to where I started, this is leaps and bounds from where it used to be.  I was the kid the asshole kids would call pizza face.  Due to the immaculate quality of my camera you can clearly see I have large pores that are mostly noticeable in my t-zone.  When I have time I will dig up a before picture and share.  EssentialMakeover Homemade Face MaskFor this Facial Friday I have made this calming oat Homemade Face Mask cleanser/mask.  It will be a loose powder you can customize to your liking and can be used in various way.  This could be considered a cleansing grain mix.  It is simple to make and if stored in a cool dry place in an airtight container, it can last you for some time.  As usual, I will give you a break down of the ingredients I used.  The star of this dish as I’m sure you can guess is oatmeal. I am going to tell you how to make colloidal oat meal.

Step 1: Take a 1/4 cup of organic old fashioned oats (I did not have organic I just had quaker,  you do you)

Step 2: Add to a blender or food processor of your choice, and blend to a super fine powder

Step 3: Use or store the powder

Easy peasy!! This colloidal oatmeal is sold in stores for bath purposes.  When added to a bath you get this milky looking water and it makes your skin silky, moisturizes, and softens the skins.  Due to its calming qualities I am using this in my mask for my itchy inflamed face.  Oatmeal has the effect of bringing an out of balanced skins PH back to normal levels.  I am also including chamomile and lavender for their calming and soothing qualities.  Lastly I added some Bentonite Clay because it is know to draw out infections and if that is what I am experiencing then detox away!

Homemade Face Mask Calming Oat

In a food processor or high speed blender, blend the powdered oatmeal, lavender and chamomile tea into a fine powder.  Take 1 Tablespoon of this mixture and add to your mask bowl.  Add 1 Tablespoon of Bentonite clay to the bowl and add 2 Tablespoon of organic milk or distilled water and mix into a paste.  Apply to face using a facial mask brush (foundation brush) and let sit on the skin for about 10 – 15 minutes.  Then rinse off.  This is enough for two applications so I shared this one with my husband.

While wearing this mask I noticed it had skin tightening abilities.  After I rinsed the mask off, my skin was super duper soft.  I will make this again and maybe leave out the flowers and use an essential oils instead but we will try that on another Facial Friday.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!
