Apple Honey Oat Exfoliating Mask

Skin Type: normal, combination and oily 

Apples are a rich source of malic acid, a natural Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), which renews skin by helping to exfoliate and dissolve dead skin cells. Ground oats help bind this formula together, act as a gentle mechanical exfoliate and help draw out impurities. Honey is an über-ingredient for all-around skin beauty, plus cleans and tones pores. If necessary, you could even eat it for breakfast.


1 organic apple, peeled, cored and diced

1 tablespoon raw honey

1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons ground oats


Blend the apple and honey together until smooth in a small food processor or blender Add ground oats and mix together starting with 1-1/2 tablespoons and adding a more as needed until a thick paste is formed.

Cleanse your face, then steam your pores open over a hot pot of water for 2 to 5 minutes or by drenching a washcloth with steaming hot water, wringing it out, letting it cool until it’s comfortable to the touch and draping over your clean face with it for 2 minutes.

Apply evenly over your face. Let stand for 15 minutes. Wash off with warm water and follow with a cool water rinse. Apply toner or face spray and moisturizer.
