Strongly brewed chamomile tea (only need 2 Tbs-1/4 cup)
1/2 cup old fashioned oats (pulsed a few times in food processor)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp caster sugar

1. Brew a cup of chamomile tea. 
2. In a small bowl mix oats, baking soda and honey. 
3. Start out by adding only 2 tbsp of tea to oat mixture and set aside 5 minutes. If mixture is too dry, add a small amount of tea at a time until desired consistency is reached…don’t add too much! 
4. Add caster sugar and mix to combine. Mask will be chunky. 
5. Apply to washed, damp face and let sit 5 minutes. Rinse and apply toner & moisturizer.
