Homemade Recipe for Oatmeal Facial Scrub

An oatmeal scrub is a gentle and natural way to remove dead skin.


1. Distilled or Reverse Osmosis Water
2. Oatmeal
3. Bowl
4. Milk or yogurt [liquid form](optional)


1. Add water to plain oatmeal and mix it until it becomes a paste. (yucky looking I know)

2. Scrub on face in a circular motion and make sure to rinse away completely.



1. For added moisturizing and cleansing effect on your pours, mix in milk or yogurt instead or water into the oatmeal.

2. Mix it well until it becomes a paste. (same as above... yuck!)

3. Leave on your face as a mask for 5 minutes and rise off well.

(Note: I have tried this and if you have oily skin on your face I would suggest just using low fat milk. The added cream in the dairy will cause you to break out on your face if you have oily or really sensitive skin.

HOWEVER! it is alright to use it for your body. But I have another recipe for that)

See you soon!
