Honey Bee & Oatmeal Facial Recipe
2 Tablespoons of Honey
2 Tablespoons of Organic Oatmeal or Whole Oat Crushed
1 to 2 Tablespoons of Milk

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl (adjust the amout of milk depending on how thin or thick you prefer it).  Smooth over face and throat.  Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

Regularly applied this homemade facial mixture of honey and milk to your face to keep your skin looking young, radiant, and smooth.

Honey is awesome to bring back a smooth glow to your skin.
Oatmeal is with its course texture makes it an excellent exfoliate. Exfoliation sloughs away dry, dead skin cells to make way for fresh, healthy ones. Oatmeal has skin-soothing properties and it is hypoallergenic.
Milk which contains lactic acid soothes and softens your skin. Milk will help moisturize, while at the same time tightening wrinkles and refining pores.

I made this with my 7 year old, he helped me measure, pour, and mix the ingredients!
