There are some basics for a face mask. Firstly it needs to have the ability to cleanse the pores in your skin, it should tone, and it should nourish.

One ingredient that is often forgotten is oatmeal.Whirl 1/2 cup of raw oats (organic would be the best choice) in a blender or food processor until it is almost like a flour. Now you can add 1-2 tsp of oat-flour to your favorite mask recipe.

Oatmeal makes a good moisturizing pack. Besides being a staple food, oatmeal has marvelous properties as a facial beauty treatment. It is rich in vitamin E and reputed to have anti-aging activity. An oatmeal mask supplies more vitamin E than any other facial cream, so is worth trying!

Now oatmeal is good for you from the OutsideIN too!

Here is a quick recipe for all skin types. It is a very simple mask that takes advantage of the cleansing and softening properties of oats and the hydrating properties of honey. It also helps clear up blackheads.
