The porridge is not only a nutritious cereal you can eat, but you can apply masks to fight acne, prevent pimples, nourish the skin and hair. In addition, its benefits are enhanced when it is combined with other ingredients such as honey, lemon or yogurt. In this article we show you how to make an oatmeal, honey and lemon mask for your face and hair.

What is the oatmeal and honey mask for on the face and hair?

The benefits of oatmeal extend to cosmetics for all the nutrients that it is capable of transmitting to the skin and hair. Some of its properties:

  • Exfoliant. This mask eliminates flaking of the skin and promotes the regeneration of new layers of the epidermis, so that it looks young and smooth. If you are interested in exfoliation, visit our post how to make exfoliating masks for the face.
  • Anti acne. Lemon juice has regulatory properties for facial fat. For this reason, we integrate it into the natural oatmeal mask that you will learn how to make below. Acne appears when excess sebum is deposited on oily skin and is not removed properly, causing an infection that leads to the appearance of pimples and blackheads. A good facial cleansing also helps fight it.
  • Moisturizing, anti-aging, anti-aging and antioxidant. Honey is rich in sugars and molecules that hydrate the face or any other part of the body where you apply it. Together with oats, it becomes one of the best allies to prevent premature aging.
  • Reduces weak spots and improves the appearance of scars.
  • Relieves irritations and redness.
  • Returning to exfoliation, you should know that oat flakes are one of the best options to get rid of dead cells, providing smoothness almost instantly. Your pores tighten over time and you will appear much healthier. However, if you have very dry skin, you should not overdo it because the face ends up drying out. In this sense, you should not use the oatmeal mask more than once a week.

· How to make homemade masks with oatmeal, lemon and honey for acne or oily skin?

  • We are going to take advantage of the antibacterial benefits of honey and the capabilities of oat flakes, as well as the regulatory action of lemonin the preparation of a professional homemade mask. How to do it? Write down the necessary ingredients:
  • A couple of tablespoons of honey.
  • One tablespoon of the flaked or flaked cereal.
  • A tablespoon of lemon juice. It can be substituted for orange, which provides extra vitamin C.
  • Half natural yogurt.
  • Weak mineralization water.

The mode of preparation is as follows:

  1. Grind the rolled oats. Flour will form.
  2. Add it to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Stir well until a somewhat thick mixture remains. If you want it more fluid, add more water.

Apply the face mask

First, clean your face well so that the effect of the oatmeal mask is greater. A face free of impurities facilitates the penetration of the active principles. Then, spread the product well over the skin, without touching the eye contour. Let it act for a quarter of an hour, and remove with plenty of warm water. After the treatment, you can use another cosmetic like your usual moisturizer.

For very dry skin

If your skin is very dry, you can modify the composition of the mask. Dip the flakes in milk to increase its hydration power. It loses some exfoliating effect, but it will do you good because it will not damage the skin as much. Also, be careful and do not massage roughly, but gently and circularly. To improve blood circulation and close pores, remove it with cold water.

For oily or acne skin

Oily and combination skin requires special ingredients like lemon, as it is antimicrobial. In this case, do not put milk, but water and a little yogurt. This combination, together with the benefits of oats, regulates sebum secretion, favoring the disappearance of grains.

Oatmeal and lemon for hair

Many times we forget about hair care. Keeping the fibers healthy and strong is essential to avoid their fall. In fact, this aspect is one of the factors that promote it the most (see our article Why does hair fall out? ).

With oats and honey, we provide it with vitamins and minerals, while it is smoothed and detangled. If you have dry hair, add argan oil. If it is worn, battered or burned, combine the mask with oatmeal and natural vitamin supplements for hair. If it is very fatty, with lemon.

The application is very easy:

  1. First, wet your hair.
  2. Spread it from the ends to the scalp, massaging the head.
  3. Let it act for 20 minutes, covering yourself with a warm, damp towel.
  4. After time, remove the towel, and wash your hair with the usual shampoo.
  5. Repeat the process 1-2 times a week.
