DIY Oats and cocoa powder skincare recipe at home

Hey All,

Today am sharing a DIY post after a long time. We all know how amazing oats and cocoa powder are for our skin. Cocoa powder is a powerful antioxidant which helps in repair and rejuvenation of the skin in the long run. Oats can act as a natural pore tightening agent and give smooth, glowing skin.

When I tried this DIY for the first time my skin felt stretchy and parched. So I added almonds to it and it was sort of fine. Then again next time I added some milk to prevent moisture loss. Let us head on to the DIY to see how it works.

Oats and cocoa facepack
  • 1 or 2 tbsp Oats powder or grind organic oats in mixer and make a powder
  • 1 Almond as per your skin type. If you have dry skin you may take 2
  • 1 small teaspoon cocoa powder unsweetened 
  • Some milk to make paste

1) Grind oats and almonds in mixer and make fine powder.
2) Take the mixture and add cocoa powder
3) Add milk to make a smooth paste and apply all over your face.
4) Wait till it is semi dry or almost dry.
5) Wash off with lukewarm water.

You may find a subtle glow and smoothness in the skin. Regular usage may help in giving a natural glow.

Do try the DIY and let me know your experiences and suggestions. If you have some such fun DIY, then let me know via the comments section.
