Wine & Oatmeal face mask n’ scrub

Today, I’ve decided to share my homemade wine and oatmeal facemask that also doubles up as a face scrub. So, I will tell you how to make this and share my way of using it as a great gift for birthdays and the likes.

Here is what you will need:

  • A glass or plastic jar to contain the final product
  • Enough oatmeal to fill the jar
  • A teaspoon each of nutmeg and cinnamon powder
  • A bottle of wine

Putting the face mask and scrub together:

  • Dry-grind the oatmeal to a coarse powder
  • Add the nutmeg and cinnamon and mix well
  • Spoon the powder into the jar and tie the neck of the jar with a pretty ribbon. You can include a message if you like with instructions on how to use the product.

How to use the product:

  • Spoon enough of the powder into a bowl for one use
  • Add enough red wine to the powder till it forms a paste (add a few drops of honey if you have dry skin)
  • Gently massage this paste on your face and leave it on till it dries (avoid the eye area)
  • Wet the dried mask on your face, and gently scrub your face
  • Rinse your face well and pat dry
  • Write to me and let me know the results you see 🙂

Why this mask and scrub is good for your skin

  1. It has wine –  is rich in antioxidant polyphenols and can enhance the skin’s resistance. Also promotes blood circulation and gives you glowing skin
  2. It has nutmeg – has antiseptic properties and is said to lighten scars
  3. It has cinnamon – is known to help with acne.
  4. It has oatmeal – contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds that soothe itchy, dry and irritated skin.  Also great for acne-prone skin because it absorbs oil from the skin’s surface.

This sweetheart is packed with goodness and I now use it once a week. I have started to notice a glow and my skin feels suppler. My skin hasn’t broken out from the time I started using this pack.

Let me know if you try it or if you have tried something similar.

Till later loves!
