Honey Mask Recipe

There's still time left in September to celebrate National Honey Month with a sweet skincare treat. As a fan of her athletic accomplishments, I'm excited to share professional volleyball player and gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings' recipe for a glowing complexion.


1 tbsp of oatmeal (rolled, instant, or plain)

2 tsps of honey

3/4 tsp of distilled water



  1. Using a coffee grinder or food processor, grind the oatmeal to a powder.
  2. In a small bowl, mix ground oatmeal, honey, and distilled water, 1/4 tsp at a time, until a thick paste forms.
  3. After cleansing face, apply mask onto entire face except eye area and leave on for 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Rinse off the mask by gently massaging with warm water in circular motion to loosen.
  5. Follow up with toner and moisturizer.
