Get Glowing with Oatmeal & Grapefruit

Can you believe it is March 24th?! We are already almost a fourth of the way into 2021! Summer is just around the corner and I hope we are all able to be outside and enjoy it.

This week for DIY Wednesday, I am going to highlight a grapefruit and oatmeal face mask for GLOWING skin!

All throughout March I have stuck with an oatmeal theme and this week is no different. Oats repair, moisturize and soothe the skin due to having high levels of antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatory properties. While the natural acids in grapefruit gently exfoliate and brighten skin as well as clean out your pores. 

What You Need:

  • Juice from ½ grapefruit
  • ½ cup cooked and cooled oatmeal (not the instant kind)
  • ½ cup milk (full fat preferably)

How to Make It:

  • First, make your oatmeal and let it cool. Feel free to grind up oats if you would like a finer, gentler mask.
  • Then, mix all your ingredients together until fully combined.

How to Use It:

  • Apply on a freshly washed, clean face.
  • Let sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Scrub lightly and once finished, rinse off with lukewarm water and / or a wet washcloth.
  • Finish up by doing your regular skincare routine.

Only one more week of March DIY Wednesday’s and this oatmeal theme. Next month we will highlight another key ingredient to expand your DIY options. Please send us feedback or pictures if you give this mask a try!

Happy Hump Day, love Alicia 😊
