I recently made a mask out of oatmeal by mixing 1/2 cup of dry oats with 1/3 cup of boiling water to make a paste. Avoid sweetened or flavored oatmeal varieties. Let it cool and apply on face. After 20 minutes, wash your face with water and moisturize! :)
There are numerous benefits of oatmeal masks and even more different kind of masks you can make with plain oats. Try adding a little bit of honey or milk. What kind of facial masks do you create in your own kitchen? Let me know by leaving me a comment!

I didn't get to write about my results! :( I was busy at work (and procrastinating, hehe) so I didn't get to finish. Well, what I found after the mask was...
1) My pores decreased dramatically in size! My skin looked so clear. :)
2) My face looked fresh and brighter, like I had a good night's sleep.
3) My skin was really soft; the oats exfoliated my skin a little!
Give this mask a try!
