oatmeal. reconsidered.

February 8, 2011

oatmeal mask mask mixed this is not a story about breakfast. though it could be.

oatmeal is for eating. i know. but sometimes it makes for a pretty good at-home spa treatment. and i’m kind of digging those lately.

this weekend i slathered the stuff on my face; a simple mixture of ground up oatmeal, yogurt and honey. it left my skin feeling soft and smooth and allowed me to practice my best monster faces in the mirror. win-win.

sweet blue bowl from gleena. visit the shop for lots more that is lovely.

    I've been all about the at home spa treatments lately too. It makes skin feel so nice, which is especially important in the winter!

    I've been a huge fan of Gleena's work. Soon, I will have to get some of those bowls myself…

    HO! Now why don't we see a pic of the oatmeal on your face? Hmmm? Seriously, a lovely pic of the blue bowl.

    i have to admit, i have an almost-phobic reaction to wet cereal, but…this really does seem like a good idea…and your photographs make it look a lot less scary.

    Your photos are just so adorable! May I ask what camera settings you use?

    Love, Lisa

    I have been thinking of trying this for ever!! I'm sure your skin feels so amazing afterwards. Also, you always take really beautiful photos.

    thank you for the sweet notes, friends. and yes, i highly recommend smearing your breakfast all over your face!

    @lisa: i generally just fiddle with settings until i find something i like. i take most of these close-ups with my camera on manual so i can adjust everything i want to!
