I’ve missed the days when I used to experiment with making natural beauty products in the comfort of my own home. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a sucker for a cleanser or moisturiser and love shopping and discovering new products – beauty is an adventure and I’m happy to climb the mountain. However, I was recently diagnosed with Partial Dermatitis, an inflamed rash that affects the area around your mouth, noise and eyes resulting in my skin becoming extremely sensitive to the mildest of chemicals and ingredients. So whilst on treatment I’ve had to pack away my skincare favorites and turn to nature for some much needed TLC. And I have to say I’m loving every minute of it.
This Honey Mask is one of my favourite recipes. Full of awesome ingredients that leave your skin feeling firm, nourished and soft. It takes less than five minutes to put together and provides you with everything you need in a hydrating mask. Uh Huh Honey…! ☺
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
3 tablespoons of blended oats
1 teaspoon of sesame seed oil
1 tablespoons of honey (Raw is best for this)
1 tablespoon of natural yogurt
1 tablespoon of rooibos tea (you can also use chamomile tea)
1. Start by placing a little warm water in a cup with the rooibos tea bag, let it brew for 5mins.
2. Blend the oats as this will give your mask a smooth and creamy texture. However if you prefer a thick consistency just use them as they are.
3. Place the oatmeal, honey and oil in a bowl mixing in the tea and oats, stir well.
4. Apply the mask to clean skin avoiding the eye area. Leave for 20minutes until its dry. Remove with luke warm water and moisturise, I love using coconut oil it smells amazing.
