Cucumber and Oat Mask for Oily and Acne-Prone Skin

 

Try this mask for oily skin because of the cucumber’s natural astringent properties. The oat acts as a mild exfoliant and absorb excess oil that can clog pores and lead to blemishes. Raw honey is a natural antimicrobial agent. 

 

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cucumber 

2 tablespoons rolled oats

1 tablespoon raw honey 

1/2 lemon, juiced 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Slice the cucumber and place in a blender. Add the oats, honey and lemon juice. Combine well until it forms a smooth paste. Massage gently onto skin to exfoliate, and then let it sit on the skin for 10-15 minutes, avoiding eyes. Rinse with cool water and pat skin dry.
