DIY Oatmeal Face Mask with Organic Greens

Who doesn’t love the yummy energy burst from organic greens? Greens like oat and alfalfa grass, kale and superfood algaes spirulina and chlorella do our insides a world of good. (It’s why they’re all in our mustHave greens formula!)

But organic greens have another super useful purpose too—skincare. Of course, eating your organic greens contributes to healthy skin from the inside out, but did you know that you can apply your greens directly to your skin?

It’s true!

If you think it’s an expensive use for organic greens, think again. High quality skincare is quite pricey and it’s never quite as good as the stuff you can make at home, which really does end up costing you a fraction of the price. Bonus: you can make as much or as little as you need, so it’s always fresh.

This skin mask uses organic greens and oats to give you a soft and smooth glow. It’s super simple to whip up, too. Make a batch before taking a nice long bath and then rinse off when you’re about to get out of the tub.

Ingredients

1/2 cup hot water (not boiling)
1/3 cup rolled oats
2 TBSP raw honey
1 TSP green powder (if you aren’t using our mustHave greens, you can use plain spirulina or alfalfa grass, etc)
1 TSP apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice

Directions

Mix the hot water with the oats and stir well. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together honey, vinegar or lemon juice and greens. Stir into the oats until well combined and cool enough to apply to skin.

Apply thin layer to face, neck and décolleté. Allow to dry for 15-20 minutes. Your skin should feel tight. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow up with a moisturizing lotion or serum. Mask can be applied weekly.
