1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup fine cornmeal
1/4 cup unsalted sliced almonds
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Pulse oats, cornmeal, almonds and sugar in food processor or blender until finely ground but not completely powdered. Rub mixture with fingertips to check consistency, pulse again for desired consistency. (For facial use, consistency should be very gently abrasive.)
Using funnel or paper cone, pour mixture into clean, dry 12 oz. (1 1/2 cup) decorative container with tight fitting lid. Seal container.
Cover top of container with fabric, if desired. Attach gift tag to jar.
Note: Recipe can be halved, doubled or tripled to fill different size container. The finished quantity of the polish will vary slightly based on the grain size and moisture content of the oats and cornmeal. Some settling will occur in the container.
For a soothing and gently smoothing facial, wet your face with warm water. Pour about a tablespoon into the palm of your hand. Rub gently on your face in small, circular motions, avoiding the delicate eye area. Rinse with warm water, then with cool water. Blot dry. Use once a week for best results.
