Sunday evening… time to rest… and therefore I decided to try another home made recipe. I sit now in front of my computer and smell the pleasant mixture of honey and lemon flavours and I can feel my skin absorbing all the natural goodness… I have read one health and beauty article and found out that our skin absorbs 60% of everything we apply on it! The founder of ‘Biocosmetics Academy’ Jolanda Cinaitiene says that ‘using natural cosmetics will help us stay beautiful and supplement our body with the necessary vitamins. Using synthetic cosmetics harmful substances accumulate in our body over years that eventually may result in serious illnesses.’
I was longing to try this mask! Anyone can make it, it takes only a few minutes but the effect is long lasting! This mask will revive and feed the skin. Honey gives the silky softness, lemon brightens the skin and the oatmeal gently exfoliates dead skin cells.
Honey and Oatmeal Mask
1 teaspoon of honey
1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon of dry oatmeal
a drop of olive oil
It is best to ground the oatmeal then the blend bonds better and complies easier on your skin. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.
The feeling is great as well as the aroma!
