Soothe, exfoliate, and hydrate with this straight-from-the-spa treatment. Chamomile instantly eliminates redness and calms.

Soothing face treatment

1 cup distilled water
1 bag chamomile tea
½ cup oats
1 tsp. honey* 

Bring water to a boil and steep tea bag for 5 minutes. Slowly pour hot tea into the oats until a thick paste is formed. Let this sit for 5 minutes. If the paste is still too thick, add a small amount of tea until the desired consistency is reached. Stir in the honey and blend your treatment thoroughly.

Gently massage onto clean face and neck using circular motions. Manipulate the product for 1 to 2 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

*Raw, organic honey is best and can be found at your local vitamin or health-food store or farmers market. Many supermarket honeys add corn syrup and won't do your skin any favors.
