Oats are a wonderful ingredient for those of us who have oily skin, it’s a natural cleanser which can be used to unclog pores, soak up excess oil, exfoliate and fight acne. But in the same breath, it’s also super useful for people with dry skin due to it’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and ability to remove dead skin cells.
Rose petals are a natural astringent with antibacterial properties so it softens and strengthens the skin while also fighting bacteria that causes you to break out. Rose can refine your pores to improve the overall appearance of skin while soothing. It’s especially great for dry skin due to its extremely moisturising properties that soothes itchiness.
Yogurt aids sun care repair, shrinks the appearance of pores, cleanses and hydrates, gently exfoliates and balances overall skin complexion for a natural glow. Just ensure that you use plain organic yogurt (with no added sugars) for its beneficial probiotic properties.
How to make an exfoliating rose and oats face mask:
- 2tbs of Oats
- 1tbs Rose Petals (I got mine HERE) or Buds
- 1tbs Plain Organic Yogurt (or almond milk for a vegan alternative)
Add rose petals and oats into a blender and mix until they are a super fine, in a bowl and add plain greek yogurt (or milk) with your oats and rose petals until the mixture is smooth enough for your skin. Apply a layer of the mask to your face using your fingertips and gently massage the oats to exfoliate any dead skin cells away. Leave the mask on for approx 10-15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. Follow with your favourite face oil or moisturizer.
You can use this mask up to three times a week, it should be mixed together just before use and any remaining product should be discarded afterwards. As with all products, I advise doing a patch test before use.
