DIY Orange Ginger Face Mask

DIY face masks are all the rage these days. Finding items from your pantry and turning them into a beauty treatment is peak millennial, and I have to admit I’m pretty into it. I love this easy DIY orange ginger face mask, as it leaves my face feeling all tingly and clean, as well as soft and moisturized.

It’s especially nice if you have dull, dry skin, as I usually get in the autumn and winter months. Oatmeal is well known as a soothing skin treatment, and the orange and ginger have a great antiseptic effect that helps to clean and exfoliate your skin.

A word of warning, though – keep it away from your eyes. Orange juice and ginger both will sting if you get them too close!

Using a coffee grinder, add oats in batches (whole amount probably won’t fit all at once) and grind about 10 seconds until it turns into a powder. Add to a bowl as it gets done. If you don’t have a coffee grinder, you can use a food processor, but it won’t be as powder-like as if you use a coffee grinder.

Transfer oat “powder” to a food processor and add the ginger. Pulse until ginger starts to break down into smaller pieces. Add orange zest, juice and honey. Pulse until combined. If it is too thick, add water 1 tbsp. at a time until a smooth, creamy consistency is reached. It shouldn’t be too thin. It should be on the thick-side, so it stays on your face.

Using a fan brush or your fingers put mask on your face and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.

If you want to store leftovers, put in an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator. Discard after a day or two.
