Ogre's Mask

If you’ve ever come face to face with an Ogre (and let’s hope you haven’t) you will have noticed his lumpy, green complexion. Bearing certainly not what you would call beautiful skin, you may wonder what an Ogre is doing recommending a beauty mask. Well, dear reader, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This mask, written by an ogre himself, will give you a lumpy greenish complexion while its on, but once it is rinsed off you’ll find your skin soothed by oatmeal, hydrated by honey, and brightened by turmeric.


You will need:


1 tbsp finely ground oatmeal

½ tsp turmeric powder

1 ½ tsp milk

1 tsp honey


  1. If your oatmeal is not already ground, place in a food processor or blender and grind until a fine meal is achieved.

  2. Mix oatmeal and turmeric in small bowl. Add milk and honey and blend.

  3. Carefully paint mixture onto face. A neck-towel is advised to catch any falling clumps. Leave on for 15-20 minutes.

  4. Remove with a damp cloth. Rinse any remaining mask with warm water.
