Oatmeal and Yogurt Face Mask. Helps wind burned, chapped skin.

I have used many different face masks over the years and recently discovered a very simple one to help sooth skin during this time of year. I was complaining about my face hurting from running around in the cold windy weather and a friend I was talking to suggested trying this yogurt mask. Well after having a cold and my face feeling like it was about to fall off I decided to try it. It's really simple, but boy does it work. My face feels like new now. It really helped sooth the redness and the burning.

Plus you probably already have the ingredients.  It's just  a simple combo of yogurt and oatmeal.

  • 1 cup natural yogurt
  • ½ cup oatmeal


Mix the ingredients together.
Apply to the skin for 10-15 minutes.
Wash off mask with a warm washcloth.
I swear by it now!!  This mask really helped relieve my wind burned face. 
If you happen to have oily skin then add a couple of drops of lemon juice to the mix.
If your skin is extra dry then add a couple of tablespoons of honey.

Give it a try if your skin is feeling the winter blues :-(
