Minute of Spotlight: Homemade Skin Care

Its about that time to be thinking of applying for schools and my future. I was checking out Blanche McDonald Centre's blog for the first time and realized they actually have some very good homemade recipes for skin care. Blanche McDonald Centre is a Vancouver college based in Vancouver Canada and is a world class educational institution focusing on the creative and applied arts.

Here is a simple and effective all-natural recipe.  It’s probably one of the most popular homemade facemasks out there. You’ll never have to leave your kitchen to make it and it’s especially great for the upcoming Fall and Winter seasons, keeping your skin moisturized and free from dead skin. Oatmeal comforts and nourishes the skin – it’s rich in protein, potassium, iron, phosphates, magnesium, and silicon.  And it’s perfect for sensitive skin because it is naturally gentle and mild.
Oily Skin:
½ cup cooked oatmeal, cooled
1 egg white
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
½ cup mashed apple
Dry Skin:
½ cup cooked oatmeal, cooled
1 egg yolk
½ mashed banana
1 Tbsp honey
Normal Skin:
½ cup cooked oatmeal, cooled
1 whole egg
1 Tbsp almond oil
