Want a Great Homemade Mask/Scrub for Oily Skin?

If you have an oily complexion and want to try a mask/scrub you can make in your own kitchen, then I have a wonderful recipe you should try.  It really helps improve that problem while saving you money at the same time!

Mix equal portions of cornmeal and regular oatmeal (not instant) with hot water to make a paste.  Apply this to your freshly washed face.  Leave this mixture on for at least ten minutes and remain hidden from public view. 

Wet your fingers when the time to remove the mask/scrub is up and work the mixture over your face like a scrub, using more water if needed, to exfoliate as well.  Rinse with cold water to close your pores. 

Do use this mask/scrub treatment no more than twice a week.  This does help clear up the oil better than a lot of commercial products that I have used.  Do try this easy recipe and see a difference in your skin!

I forgot to mention if you want just to use this as a mask and not exfoliate, then just use the oatmeal. Mix a thick paste and let it dry the same way on your clean skin. Thanks for writing.
