2. Put the strawberry,glycerin,cocoa powder and oat grains into a food processor and mix,
3. Add water as needed to the desired thickness, but make sure mixture is not too runny so that it stays on your face,

Note: If you are not using a food processor, all you need is a bowl and pestle or some utensil that you can use to mash up the strawberries into small enough pieces, and mix in the other ingredients. The mixture will be a little chunky, but that’s okay because enough of the nutritious strawberry liquid will be released into the mask.
