Skin Beauty mask for oily skin

Submitted by sE@RCh

Raw oatmeal is still the best mask for oily skin.

Mix 3 tbsp, in 2 tbsp. of cold water and apply directly to the face. Leave on for 5 minutes or until the mask hardens. Rinse with cool water.

really? Comments By: Ananah on 2004-09-14
tried it and my skin was smooth.

Perhaps it would irritate due to an allergy?

Also, I wouldn't suggest scrubbing it in. that could cause irritation.

Variations Comments By: Sunshiny on 2004-11-11
I have tried oatmeal for a mask too but I add other ingredients also. I put in whatever I have on hand. Cooked apple, strawberries, lemon juice (oily skin), honey and green tea are a few examples. My face is red a little afterwards but I use a warm mask and rinse in cool water to close my pores so that could be why. Or maybe, as the other comment said, from rubbing it too much. Good luck and happy experimenting!

if!!! Comments By: Lovelynne on 2005-05-23
if you feel that your skin is being stretched by the mask or if you feel tightening sensation, rinse it with cool water... :-)
ingredients? Comments By: Becca on 2006-05-26
I tried the 3 spoons to 2 of water and it went a lil mushy and was really hard to put on my face, i think a lil more water would have been better.

Oatmeal Princess of the School Comments By: Serena on 2008-12-15
I left this scrub on over night and forgot to remove before i went to school the next day. To my surprise all my peers thought i was starting a new trend and arrived the next day sporting very similar oatmeal covered facials. I am now the coolest girl in school, whereas before i was just a unpopular loser. however i have lost all my old true friends and my new ones are totally superficial. DO NOT USE THIS SCRUB IF YOU ENJOY UNPOPULAR FRIENDS
