The Oatmeal Mask is great, it is the first thing I ever tried for acne. While my mix didn't work well, mostly because I used instant oatmeal and just put it on my face, it is still a great choice.
Oatmeal Mask for been doing great for people with acne, ever since the first person accidently slipped and feel in a bowl and started getting better skin. Okay so it probably didn't happen like that. Still would have been funny though.
Why does the oatmeal mask work great to get rid of acne blemishes?
Simple, antioxidants. Oatmeal is full of antioxidants. The antioxidants are amazing for your health, whether its the anti-inflammation, skin firming, scar treatment, repairing sun damage, or acne. They are so many health advantages that I refuse to google them all and add them to this post. LOL.
So here's how to get rid of acne blemishes with oatmeal...
First of all you will need two more ingredients..lemon juice(for killing bacteria in the pores) and 1 Egg ( to tighten skin)
First off, you need to cook the oatmeal, yes cook it. Cook it like normal, check packaging for advanced oatmeal cooking instructions. Yes that was a joke. Unless you found really awesome instructions, if so then share in the comments below. I gotta hear this.
Second, mix the lemon juice and egg to the oatmeal. It is important to get them thoroughly mixed.
Lastly, but a dot of it on that zit. Dot it likes its hot, dot it..dot it, like its hot. No...ugh fine.
Enjoy your new found oatmeal mask. Don't forget to store any extra you have in the fridge. It will only last for a week though.
