Exfoliating Face Mask with Oats for different skin types

With simple ingredients and few minutes of your time, you can make a quick and gentle exfoliating mask to give a skin a boost in term of overall appearance. Oats have always been my favorite as exfoliates in facial masks. It is gentle and full of amino acids which are building blocks of our skin. Below I made three exfoliating masks using oats and easy to find ingredients like dried botanicals, honey, yogurt and Aloe. It can be used for normal to dry, normal to oily or sensitive skin. Enjoy!
