DIY Pimple Treatment Recipe

Blast Blemishes With an Easy Oatmeal Mask

When you're plagued with a persistent pimple and need to clear it up fast, never fear. Here's an easy, two-ingredient spot treatment that comes together in no time. All you need is a small bowl of crushed mint leaves and oats.

How To:

  • Step 1: Take a handful of fresh mint leaves, and pulverize them with a pestle in a bowl.
  • Step 2: Add moistened oats to the mixture, and mix until it forms a paste.
  • Step 3: Apply evenly to your face or just to your affected areas, and wait 20 minutes.

Relax and take deep breaths during your waiting time; allow time for the oats and the oils to absorb. Apply twice a day as needed, storing the remaining mixture in a sealed container in the fridge.

Remember: Just like with any new product you're applying to your skin, it's advisable to do a patch test to make sure you're not allergic or overly sensitive to it.

This is working for me, but I made my own variation. I added some egg white, lemon juice and a pinch of nutmeg. Definitely got the kale effect going on, but it really is drying out my pimples!

I'm trying it out... my face looks like a plate of kale. Maybe I didn't mash it up enough.
