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
