DIY Facial Scrub and Mask

We don’t like to spend a bunch of money on fancy facial or beauty products.  Not only do we find most of them unnecessary, but we are also turned off by all the chemicals that they contain.  Furthermore, we find most of them (ESPECIALLY the organic ones) cost-prohibitive.  So, what’s to do?

Check out this post for a quick and easy DIY facial scrub & mask recipe.  You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already.

DIY Facial Scrub & Mask


3/4 cup uncooked, plain oats  (You can use steel cut oats)
3 tbsp plain yogurt
2 tbsp honey
Juice from 1 orange (or another citrus would do)
2 tsp of orange zest


1.  Pour each ingredient into a bowl or mason jar

2.  Stir well.  You want the consistency to be pretty thick.  You might need to add more oatmeal.   It’s ok.  You won’t screw it up.
3.  Wash your face and apply the scrub//mask.  Tub it around and get a little exfoliating action.
4.  Leave on for 15-30 minutes.
5.  Rinse with warm water.

You can generally store this scrub/mask in the fridge for up to a week.  Enjoy!
