An oatmeal mask for acne can help freshen and rejuvenate the skin, it is a great way to reduce inflammation and redness of the skin. Cooked oatmeal reduces inflammation whereas raw oatmeal only exfoliates the skin. The way cooked oatmeal soothes the skin is by reducing the production of one class of inflammatory chemicals. It cleanses pores by absorbing oil and exfoliating the skin. Try adding the right kind of honey (Manuka is best) added to a cooked oatmeal mask can reduce inflammation further. Honey eases application and serves as a skin toner.
