If you think that putting porridge on your face is silly, think again. Oatmeal gently exfoliates, while the milk whitens, softens and plumps the skin.
In a blender or with a whisk, mix 2 tablespoons of oatmeal with enough milk to make a paste. Use buttermilk if your skin is oily. Add an egg yolk if you have very dry skin.
Apply the paste to your face, except the eye area, and leave for a few minutes. Remove with a damp muslin cloth, gently massaging any trouble spots.
