We all want to have healthy and glowing skin, but at what price? Well, I’ve got you covered with this super affordable DIY oatmeal face mask. With these 3 ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, this wonderful all-natural face mask will be your new go-to beauty cream.

I’ve become a bit of a DIY nerd lately. I’ve been coming up with all kinds of anti-aging skincare routines, and they all work!

I hate buying stupid, expensive, store-bought creams that promise to do things that they don’t. And let’s not forget all the chemicals and junk they put in those. My general rule of thumb is that if I can’t pronounce it, I’m not putting it on my skin.

But that’s just me.

We’re going to break down all the healing benefits of the ingredients in this oatmeal honey face mask, and then I’ll share more info on how to use it, when to use it, and much more.

Let’s dive in.

So here are the 3 ingredients required to make this amazing homemade oatmeal face mask.

  • oatmeal (not instant!!)
  • honey (natural is best)
  • yogurt (plain yogurt with 0 additives)

The first ingredient we’ll discuss is oatmeal – not just for breakfast and cookies anymore! Here are the benefits of oatmeal for skin.

How to Make Oatmeal Face Mask For Glowing Skin

Honestly, it’s so easy to whip up this all-natural face mask. With only 3 ingredients, you’ll have the most powerful and result-producing anti-aging face mask ready in under 3 minutes. Heck, maybe even 2 minutes.

Here are the measurements, but they’re not set in stone. You can make bigger batches of this and keep it in your fridge. I love putting this on my skin, fresh and cold, right out of the fridge. It just feels so darned good!

  • one-quarter cup of yogurt
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of oatmeal

You want the consistency to be creamy and slightly thick, not runny. If it is runny, add more oatmeal; if it’s too thick, add more yogurt.

It’s that simple. And this mask is so good you may want to eat it, and you probably could!

How to Use Your Oatmeal Face Mask

Mix all the ingredients together and apply directly all over your face. It will feel ooey gooey, but you’ll get used to it.

Let it sit and dry for about 15-20 minutes. Once it’s completely dried, rinse it off thoroughly with cool water and apply an all-natural toner to your face afterward, or nothing at all; it’s entirely up to you!

You can add in essential oils to your oatmeal face mask for even more amazing anti-aging benefits. Here are a few I would recommend.
