So now I'm going to show you guys how to make an oatmeal mask for your skin. This mask is great for all skin types. It's going to be soothing. It's going to be anti aging, hydrating. But it's going to have some lemon in it and the lemon is a really great ingredient for anybody who's worried about pigmentation problems or if you're just worried about the surface of the skin not quite being even for you.

The other ingredients that we're going to us besides the lemon are a half a cup of oatmeal. I'm going to use one egg white. And I'm also going to use almond oil. Almond oil is fantastic as an anti aging ingredient.

So I'm going to start by cutting my lemon and I'm going to squeeze half of it into the bowl. Lemon is pretty acidic so you don't really need too much of it for it to have a great effect on your skin. I'm going to add my egg white, one egg white. I'm going to add my oatmeal. About a half a cup. And I'm going to add one tablespoon of almond oil.

Almond oil is and ingredient that you will find in a lot of serums these days that are anti aging serums. The oatmeal in this mask makes it very, very calming and soothing. So if you have really sensitive skin or you tend to have reactive skin, this mask is going to be great for you

As you can see, it's a very thin, a little bit of a pasty texture to it. But you want to just apply a thin layer all over the face. You're going to leave this on for about 15 minutes to a half hour. If you have pigmentation issues with your skin, you're going to leave it on for the full half hour. If you have more sensitive skin, you could go for more the 15 minutes. And you're going to rinse this off with tepid water, which just means not too hot and not too cold. Extreme temperatures on the face are never good for your skin.

And you're going to be really amazed. This mask is really going to be hydrating. It's soothing. But the main thing is that your skin is going to look retexturized. You're going to have like a very even skin tone, a very even texture to the skin. And that's really what's going to make your skin look really perfect and glowing. And that's what's going to give you a lot of confidence.
