Milky Oatmeal Scrub

This is a very gentle scrub which will leave your skin smooth and soft. It's so gentle that you can use it as a facial mask.

Milky Oatmeal Scrub


To make this you will need:

1/2 cup milk powder
1/2 cup finely ground oatmeal
water

Blend the dry ingredients thoroughly. Pour into an airtight storage container. 

When you're ready to use that scrub combine 2 teaspoons of water and 2 teaspoons of the the milk-oat mix to form a paste. You may need to adjust the quantities to get a smooth, spreadable mix that isn't too runny or too thick. Allow the mixture to sit for a minute or two before using.

To use as a facial scrub massage gently into your face and neck, then rinse with warm water.

To use as a mask apply to your face and throat (avoiding the eyes). Leave for 20 minutes then rinse off.





Stored in an airtight container the dry ingredients will last for up to 6 months. Any of the wet mixture left over should be discarded.

  1. Thank you SO much for sharing this at Inspiration Thursday. I have milk eczema and have to bathe with oatmeal-based washes when my skin breaks out. The oatmeal washes from the store are pretty expensive so I am really excited to save some money by making my own. Have a great week!

  9. This is so smart to make ahead dry ingredients so that the scrub can be stored and just combined with water as needed. Love it. You get tired of making something every time that you need it because it will spoil. Thank you so much for sharing this with #UpsyDaisyLinkup! This will be so nice and soothing/calming.
