Raspberry, Honey and Oat Facial Mask

This delicious facial mask will do wonders for your skin with just 3 simple ingredients!  The raspberries (which are bursting with Vitamin C) work to fight signs of aging (wrinkles and fine lines) as well as maintaining skins natural glow.  The honey (which is packed with antioxidants) works to moisturize skin while fighting off germs that can lead to acne.  Lastly (but not least), the oats do the job of soaking up any impurities that may have been clogging up your pores.

So, if you have 15 to 20 minutes and these 3 ingredients you have time to treat your face to this healing facial mask!

What you need:

  • 14 ripe red raspberries
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/4 c. rolled oats

What you do:

  • Place the raspberries in a bowl and mash them with a fork until they form a liquid pulp-like consistency
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the mashed raspberries and mix until all ingredients are blended and you have a paste like consistency (if your mixture is too runny/wet add more oats and if your mixture is too dry add more honey)
  • Apply the mixture to a clean face and let it sit for 10 minutes
  • Rinse the mixture off with warm water and follow up with a moisturizer
