Homemade Oat Facials

I have two recipes to use depending on your skin type, I’ve always been interested in natural homemade alternatives and these are both great.

1) Best for oily skin
2 tbsp crushed oats
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
Enough water to make a paste.
Mix together, apply to the face then wash off after 6 mins using warm water and pat dry.

2) Best for dry skin
2 tbsp crushed oats
1 tsp organic honey
Enough milk to make it runny.
Mix together, apply to the face, leave on for 10 mins then wash off using warm water and pat dry.

I would recommend to use at least twice a week for best results. After using these facials your face will feel free and refreshed because your skin has absorbed in all that goodness. Once you’ve washed off your face use a light oil such as almond oil to keep your skin soft and moisturized.

*You know it’s good for your skin if you can eat it too 🙂

2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame seeds

METHOD
1. Firstly dice the chicken breasts into small squares then combine all the ingredients together except the sesame seeds and leave to marinade for 4 hours or over night.

2. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and cover a baking tray with parchment paper, also tare off enough foil to fit over the top.

3. Then tip the marinaded chicken onto the tray putting 3-4 pieces on a cocktail stick and cover with foil, bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

4. After the 20 minutes take out, remove the foil and sprinkle with the sesame seeds, put back in the oven for 10 minutes.

I ate my chicken with steamed broccoli and oven fries, I think using the cocktail sticks adds a difference to the dish and they are a great to serve for any occasion.
