Oatmeal Face Mask | Glowing Skin


Lately, I’ve added oatmeal to my diet for its many benefits. During my research, I  discovered that in addition to its high protein and fiber content, oats can also offer many cosmetic benefits for the skin. Furthermore,it can easily be used to make a homemade Oatmeal face mask for healthier skin.


☉Oatmeal softens and soothes different types of skin irritations. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory action, it protects and stabilizes the skin’s pH by creating a barrier that protects the dermis from possible external aggressions (including sunburn).

☉It absorbs dirt from the pores and removes dead cells. Its ability to drag impurities from the cells and absorb dirt makes it an excellent alternative for use in cleansing masks.

Hydrates in depth. Its high content of vitamins and trace elements protect the skin from dehydration, avoiding water loss.


Seeing the multiple benefits it contains and how easy it is to get it and its price, I decided to try making an oat mask myself. It is straightforward, quick, and easy to make. Here are my three favorite homemade oatmeal face masks :

OATMEAL & CHAMOMILE | Skin suffering from redness and dermal hypersensibility.


  1. Prepare an infusion of chamomile.
  2. Once lukewarm, pour the infusion into half a cup of ground oats.
  3. Mix until you have a homogeneous paste.
  4. Add a teaspoon of olive oil if you are looking for more nutrition.
  5. Spread and massage the mixture over the face making circular movements towards the ends of the face.
  6. Leave on for 15 minutes and remove with lukewarm water.

OATMEAL & CUCUMBER | For reducing excess of sebum in the skin.

  1. Add 2 tablespoons of ground oats to a bowl.
  2. Blend half a cucumber and add the juice in the oats until a paste is created (if there is an excess of oats, add more cucumber).
  3. Apply to the skin and massage in with circular movements and towards the ends.
  4. Leave on for 15 minutes and remove with lukewarm water.

OATMEAL & HONEY MASK | Ideal for nourishing and bringing a touch of luminosity to the skin

  1. Prepare a lavender infusion.
  2. Add two spoonfuls of honey.
  3. Add two tablespoons of ground oat
  4. Pour in the lavender infusion we made previously (wait until it is warm).
  5. Mix and apply to the skin with circular movements and towards the outside of the face.
  6. Leave on for 20/30 minutes and remove with plenty of water and a facial cleanser.

WARNING: It is the most sticky of masks, so removing it costs a little more. Still, the result is worth the extra effort!
