One thing I would recommend to make this DIY face mask even easier
Strawberry and Yogurt Face Mask DIY Benefits
Strawberry Face Mask Benefits
Wondering if strawberries are good for your skin? Or maybe if strawberries are good for a face mask? The answer is yes and yes!
Strawberries contain salicylic acid which makes them great exfoliators. By adding them to your facial mask, you can: aid in removing impurities from the skin, improve the appearance of your complexion, make pores appear smaller, and give your skin a healthy glow.
Yogurt Face Mask Benefits
If you’re unsure if plain yogurt is good for your face, keep reading.
Yogurt is packed full of nutrients that are great for your skin. Zinc has anti-flammatory properties while lactic acid aids in moisturizing your skin. Along with that, calcium aids in healing dry skin making this a perfect mask for Winter.
If you have a choice for the type of yogurt you use in this easy face mask DIY, try to get the unsweetened variety when possible.
Oatmeal Face Mask Benefits
What does oatmeal do for your skin? Tons!
Oatmeal is filled with loads of vitamins and minerals that make oats a great addition to this mask, especially if you’re suffering from dry skin. You’ll reap the rewards of moisturizing properties and pore cleansing attributes with this simple addition.
How do you make an oatmeal face mask?
Oatmeal face masks can be made to be rather chunky or thin depending on the consistency that you prefer your face mask. You can grind the oatmeal into a fine powder (separate from the ingredients) for a smoother mask or blend it with everything else and have a slightly thicker, chunkier face mask. It’s all up to you!
Strawberry Yogurt and Oatmeal Face Mask DIY Recipe
- 4 Strawberries
- 1 Tbsp Oatmeal
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Yogurt
- Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until thoroughly mixed.
- Apply the mixture to your face and let sit for 15-20 minutes or until completely dry.
- Rinse off with warm water and a wash cloth then pat dry.
This mixture is enough for 2-3 masks for me, depending on the size of the strawberries. I usually keep the leftover mixture in the fridge for a couple of days and then use it again.
One thing to note: this is an oatmeal face mask without honey. Many people love combining these two ingredients in face masks due to the replenishing properties of honey. You can easily add honey to this recipe, but it will change the consistency if you add a significant amount.
