The Versatile Oatmeal

Oh...oatmeal, how we all (well, most of the bloggers) adore you. I see you in almost every breakfast choices of the blogs I read. You can be paired up with so many sides - pumpkin, cinnamon, chocolate, berries, yogurt...you're so versatile, you're omnipotent!

I was reading Health magazine and it featured, you guessed it, oatmeal. Besides eating oatmeal, it also has other external usages as well! Did you know that we can make an inexpensive, yet effective facial mask by mixing 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of hot water and 1/4 cup of honey? Blend these ingredients together and apply the mixture on your face for 10 minutes and rinse. Oats' saponins cleanses and exfoliates your skin. Just don't eat off from your face. :)

YUM! I used to love oats so much that I'd nibble on them right out of the can. Haha, I love that face mask recipe! Never knew you had to add honey though... going to try that out right NOW! Thanks for sharing!
