Dry dull face: Oatmeal & honey facial mask

Every winter, my tía treats herself to a gentle oatmeal and honey mask once a week to help fight dryness. This deliciously hydrating mask not only sooths and moisturizes skin, but leaves it with a beautifully radiant glow! Add one cup of dry oats and 1/2 a cup of warm water to your blender. Once your oats are nice and thinly ground, pour the mixture into a small bowl and add about 1/4 cup of honey. Mix well and then apply to your face, leaving it on for about 10 to 15 minutes.
