All you have to do is take one whole soft avocado and scoop out the flesh. Cut the flesh into small cubes and mash it up so it becomes a smooth paste. Take a handful of rolled oats and place them in the avocado paste. Mix the paste thoroughly so that the avocado and oats and mixed well together.

Make sure your face is wet with warm water and apply the mixture to your entire face and neck. Make sure you avoid the sensitive mouth and eye area of your face. Leave the mixture on your face for five to ten minutes and rinse off with warm water. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.

Put one cup of light brown sugar into a bowl and pour half a cup of olive oil into the cup.

Oatmeal is fabulous for pulling bad things out of your tissues! Honey is wonderful, too. And, bentonite clay is one of my favorite things to use, as well.

Great hub! Voted up and accolades!
