Gingerbread Oatmeal Face Mask

A  holiday-inspired face mask that will take you one step closer to flawless skin!

Whenever the holidays roll around, my house is always stocked with an obscene amount of spices — specifically, cinnamon. It’s like Fall’s best friend or something…it never goes away. So what do I do with all of this cinnamon? Answer: face mask.

Turns out cinnamon is pretty awesome for your face. It’s a natural antiseptic which reduces bacteria on the surface of the skin, and therefore reduces the likelihood of pimples. It also stimulates blood flow to your skin’s surface, and you know what that means — hellooo glow!

Our stash of ginger is also high. This, too, has great skin benefits, like natural anti-aging properties. Mix the two (plus a few other skin-loving ingredients), and you’ve got yourself a magic gingerbread potion for the face. So, without further ado, here’s how to make it!

What you need:

1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon

1 tbsp ginger powder

1 1/2 tbsp honey

1/2 cup oats

1/2 tbsp turmeric

a spoonful or two of Greek yogurt


In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well until a thick paste has formed. On a clean face, spread a thin layer of the mixture over skin using your fingertips (avoid eye area). Leave on for up to 20 minutes, then wash off thoroughly with warm water.

  1. Make sure not to use to much cinnamon…. Ya.. It’s starts to irritate your face and takes a couple minutes to feel better. If that does happen to you, use a cool cloth and coconut oil.
