Looking for a natural, gentle, and soothing skincare solution to pamper your face during the cooler months ahead? Look no further than the Chamomile Tea and Oatmeal Face Mask!
This DIY mask is easy to make and will leave your skin feeling soft, supple, and refreshed.
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make and use this fantastic mask:
Step 1: Brew a cup of chamomile tea.
The first step is to brew a cup of tasty chamomile tea. This cup is not for drinking though! We will use the chamomile tea in your facemask due to the fabulous anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of chamomile.
Step 2: Mix the oatmeal and honey.
Next, take a small bowl and mix 1/4 cup of oatmeal and 2 tablespoons of honey. Oatmeal is really great for calming dry or irritated skin whereas honey is perfect for it's moisturising properties.
Step 3: Add the chamomile tea.
After that, pour the cooled chamomile tea into the bowl with your oatmeal and honey mixture. You need to stir everything until the ingredients are combined forming a smooth paste.
Step 4: Apply the mask.
Time to apply your mask! Using your fingers or a special brush, apply the mask gently to all areas of your face except for the area surrounding your eyes. Allow the mask to sit for 15-20 minutes.
Step 5: Rinse off.
Once the time has come to an end, carefully rinse off the mask using warm water and a flannel. Pat your face dry with a soft, clean towel and admire your new glowing skin!
Using this mask once or twice a week will leave your skin feeling soft, hydrated, and refreshed. And the best part? You can make it with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!
This Chamomile Tea and Oatmeal Face Mask is a fantastic DIY skincare solution for a few reasons. First, chamomile tea has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, which can help soothe irritated skin and prevent breakouts. According to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, chamomile extract contains compounds that can inhibit the growth of bacteria, making it an effective ingredient in skincare products.
Second, oatmeal is a gentle exfoliant that can help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. It also contains saponins, which can help remove dirt and oil from the skin. A study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology found that oatmeal can improve skin barrier function, increase hydration, and reduce inflammation.
Finally, honey is a natural humectant, which means it can help draw moisture into the skin and keep it hydrated. It also has antibacterial properties that can help prevent breakouts. A study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that honey can improve the appearance of acne-prone skin.
