An all natural oatmeal mask

I found a "recipe" for an oatmeal mask that will help eliminate acne scars or marks on the face NATURALLY!

Of course I tweaked it and made it my own, so here is my version:

What you will need:
1/2 cup of oatmeal
1 cup water
2 drops lemon
1 tsp of cinnamon powder

I also added a few drops of grapefruit essential oil to "wake up" my skin. 

Step 1
Put water in a pan to medium heat

Step 2 
Add the oatmeal

Step 3
Add two drops of lemon and stir into a paste. (should look something like this at the end)

Step 4 
Let this cool down, then add cinnamon and stir

Voila! Easy! Apply this to your face for 15-20 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water. 

Advised use is once every 2 weeks for the first month, then once a month thereafter. 

Always spot test!!
Do not use if allergic to any of the ingredients. 
Mild burning on the face might happen due to the cinnamon, if unbearable, wash off immediately!
