DIY Exfoliating Oatmeal Face Mask - Must Have Mom

You’ll need:

  • 1 Tbsp Ground Oatmeal
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 1 tsp Milk

In a small mixing bowl, use a fork to mash up half a ripe banana. Make sure you mash it until it is lump-free. Then mix in 1 tsp of milk and 1 Tbsp ground oatmeal. Mix well. Next, wash your face with warm water which will open up your pores. Pat dry with a soft towel. Using clean fingers rub the mask into your face in a circular motion. Apply the mask in a thick layer so it can soak in well. The oatmeal acts as a gentle exfoliant to get rid of dead skin and dirt. Keep the mask on for 10-15 minutes and then wash your face with warm water (no soap). Follow up with a splash of cold water to help your pores close and then pat dry with a soft towel. Apply your favorite moisturizer and enjoy the fresh, clean feeling!

Dawn Hand Renewal - Must Have Mom #DDDivas

This Summer your face isn’t the only skin that needs pampering! I do a lot of Summer entertaining and with that comes a lot of dishes. I love the Dawn Hand Renewal because it helps to soften my hands while still being tough on grease and leaving my dishes clean. I hate having to hand wash dishes but many of my entertaining pieces are too big or fragile to go in the dishwasher. Dawn has been a lifesaver because the last thing I want is to have dry, cracked hands in the Summer!
