I was using a honey and lemon juice mask and my skin seemed to be improving slowly. I added oatmeal to the mask because of the positive things people say about it. My skin has gotten worse since adding oatmeal. Not too much worse but I noticed it. I'm wondering if my skin just doesn't like oatmeal or if I'm going through a purging process? Has anyone dealt with this?

My skin doesn't like oatmeal either, which is unfortunate because I've seen so many people recommend it, and all of its health benefits seemed pretty promising. However I'd say to try it a few more times, just to see if maybe it is just the purging process (because it very well could be), just in my case it didn't really seem to be even after I tried using it several times. Instead of oatmeal, I now use either turmeric (which I think is amazing in masks! Works really well) or aspirin, or both lol. Plus, oatmeal clogged my tub up and always fell off my face, so maybe it's a good thing that it didn't work. I don't know haha, good luck :)
Current regimen*
mornings: wash face with warm & cold water, apply BB Cream (brand: undecided).
nights: wash face with warm & cold water, occasional clay masks such as Freeman's Oatmeal & Avacado mask, Miracle Clay, ext. Apply Johnson's Dreamy Skin Night Cream.
diet: no refined sugars, high fructoses, ext, ever. (fruit/natural sugar is allowed). Half gluten free diet, lots of water and vegetables. Overall very health conscious diet.
vitamins: a few time a week if not at all; 1 Cinnamon capsule, two small omega 3 fish oil capsules, & 1 "skin care" multivitamin. Not taken every day.
​other : if acne should occur, sometimes bp is applied. Otherwise, not yet decided on what really works for me yet.

*I used to use many products. Nothing ever really worked for me, or they just broke me out with all sorts of acne. It took me a long time to realize that and to find my perfect regimen. That is why my regimen is pretty simple, and 90% based on diet! Everyone has their very own regimen that will work for them, they just need to find it!

Currently 95% clear of comedones. 100% clear of pimples/cysts.
Time progress of getting my skin in control: 2 or so years

I tried oatmeal as a mask too and it irritated my skin. I even bought some colloidal oatmeal from makingcosmetics.com and still had the problem. My favorite mask for oily skin is non-fat yogurt - I only wish I had discovered it years ago.
