Multi-task your Saturday mornings in prep for a night out on the town by sporting a homemade face mask while you paint your nails or write your latest blog post, like I am doing.
In a few minutes, I was able to whip up this thick conglomerate and apply it to my face. Like some masks, it did not burn or sting from too much lemon juice or other acidic based products. It had a soothing aroma from the oats and parsley tea. When I removed the face mask, my pores emerged visibly minimized. My mom made a comment when she returned home about my skin appearing healthier than usual. It implements everyday household ingredients, so it will not break your bank.

- In the meantime, pull out a clean coffee grinder or mini food processor and pulverize 5 Tbsp. of oats to a fine powder.
Place into a small bowl.
- Separate one egg conserving just the whites.
- When your tea is finished, strain the parsley from the liquid and discard the parsley leaves.
- Take 2 Tbsp. of apple cider vinegar and 2 Tbsp. of your tea water, and incorporate with the oats. Add in the egg white to develop a thick paste.
- Spread over your entire face for 15-20 minutes. Remove with a wash cloth and warm water when dry.
