I’m all about beauty on a budget. Sure, every once in a while I like to splurge on deluxe cruelty-free skincare goodies at the store, but for the most part, I like to just whip up my own beauty products from scratch at home… saves me some cheddah, it’s quick and easy, and I feel like a bad-ass makin’ my own shiz. Na mean?

Today’s DIY beauty recipe features one of my all-time fave ingredients evah—oatmeal! Aside from being tasty and nutritious, it also works wonders for your skin (it smooths, tones, hydrates and helps fight acne).

Oatmeal scrub ingredients:

Combine all of your ingredients and then apply the scrub to your face, gently scrubbing in a circular motion. Feel free to wait five minutes before rinsing if you prefer to use this as a mask. Badda bing badda boom! Enjoy your beautiful glowing skin.
