Dearest Honey-Blossoms,

Pass your favorite beauty tips on to your daughters and granddaughters. But keep the details of your wonderful-looking skin a mystery to your husband. If he asks what you do to your cute little face, just say you like oatmeal.


Oatmeal Cleanser

Wash your hands before touching your face!


1/2 C. Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (do not use the instant kind)
Milk or Cream
Yoghurt (optional)

How to Make

  1. Grind oats to a powder in a food processor or blender. You can achieve the same end results with more work if using a mortar and pestle.
  2. You will not need all of the oat powder for this recipe. So store what you don’t use in an airtight container. Label the container. Store in a cool dry place.

How to Apply

  1. Measure out 1 to 2 tablespoons oat powder into a small bowl.
  2. Mix in just enough cream or milk to make a paste.
  3. Rub oat paste into skin until skin is clean. Use small circular motions with the fingertips.
  4. Wipe away excess oat paste with a damp face towel.
  5. Splash skin clear with tepid water.
  6. Towel blot the skin til dry.

Finishing Touches
At this point, you can either moisturize your skin or apply a nourishing mask.
