This makes your skin feel very soft, it is gentle and not messy. For a dry or sensitive skin use cream or olive oil as a binder, for an oily skin the yogurt. I have a dry skin and I like the cream best, and as that usually comes out of the fridge it makes a nice cool facial. If you have any left, treat your hands as well!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grind the oats, I use my coffee grinder, mix with milk powder.
  2. Use enough of the chosen binder to make a paste that is to your liking.
  3. Put on your face and neck, leave for 20 minutes.
  4. After the 20 minutes, gently massage your face for a minute or so, then rinse of with warm water.
  5. If you like this mask, make a larger batch, 10 tablespoons oats, and 5 tablespoons milk.
  6. Store in a jar, when you make it for a gift, attach a little card with instructions.

I have got combination skin, oily on the t-zone, so what I did was I whipped up two batches. One batch with yogurt (t-zone; oily) and one batch with buttermilk (for the sensitive skin parts). It was wonderful! And it gave me a really nice glow. Thanks heaps!!

I agree with the other reviewer, this is very cool and very easy too! I made 2 batches of this; one using a combo of cream, Nido powdered milk(Nido is the brand name) and oats. The other I made using Nido powdered milk, oats and olive oil. Both are very good! Thanks for sharing!
