DIY: Oatfix Lush Face Mask

Hey guys,

So I love DIY’s especially when it comes to skincare but who doesn’t. I came across this old wives tale recipe for dry skin a long time ago and for some reason never had the time to post it until now πŸ˜›

But it works and it is something you can create just from your kitchen pantry so I know you’ll love it.

Lush also has an oatmeal face mask calledΒ oatifix and a lot of the ingredients you will be using here are in the Lush face mask.

Ingredients:Β 

  1. 1/2 a cup of oatmeal (obviously plain don’t get the ones filled with sugar or chemicals)
  2. 3 tablespoons of Milk
  3. 1 tablespoon of honey
  4. 1/4 of a banana
  5. Ground almonds

1) First soak the oatmeal in the milk. You can use water but I like to use milk since it’s a natural cleanser and it was rumored that Cleopatra used to bath in milk for her clear complexion. If it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for me πŸ˜›

Also measurements are not exact, it’s just the way I like it, but play around with it until you get the texture you want.

2) Then I like to add honey to the mixture since its a great cleanser and great for your skin, you even find it as an ingredient in many skincare products.

3) Then I add a 1/4 of a banana, it’s usually the bottom bit of the banana that has turned black and since I’m not going to eat it, might as well use it! Banana is great for your skin, in fact many people use it alone Β and it works. Banana nourishes your skin and works as a mild skin tightener.

4) Last but not least we add the ground almonds. They work as a gentle exfoliator and help heal and repair the skin.

And Voila you have your face mask! Leave it for 10-15 minutes. It’s great for sensitive skin too and is very beneficial for your skin. Let us know if you tried it, we would love to know if it worked for you.

  1. A few years ago, I attempted doing this mask DIY. . . didn’t end very well, so I gave up. But the properties from the oats and honey alone, are pretty amazing for the skin.

    Will attempt again . . at some point next year πŸ™‚

      1. Ha, yes, it didn’t end well as I literally made a pigs ear of it, i.e. mess absolutely everywhere! lol But will attempt again in the new year. I can imagine . . skin feels incredibly smooth afterwards? Have you seen any significant improvement, i.e. brighter skin, reduction in blemishes?

      2. To be honest I mainly use it when I get dry skin and that happens just during winter. It gets really bad sometimes. And for dry skin I can say it 100 % works and it works better than a lot moisturisers that I have bought too. Luckily I don’t have blemishes and I havent used it consistently to give you an accurate answer. But try it and let me know!😊😘
