DIY oatmeal

Beauty benefits
Do you know that oatmeal is an incredible cleanser for the skin? It has the ability to relieve itchiness, redness, dryness and minor irritations. It absorbs and removes dirt & impurities whilst exfoliating the skin gently without all the harmful chemicals (found in a lot of our skincare products). It also helps the skin to fight against free radicals because it's so abundant in anti-oxidants. Result? Smoother, clearer and brighter skin without the $$$.

What you'll need
All you need is oatmeal. That's it! It doesn't matter what brand it is, as long as it is oatmeal. Plain, instant or quick cooking oatmeal? Doesn't matter because either works great. Simplicity is awesome isn't it?

How to cleanse your face with oatmeal
I take a palm full of oatmeal and I clench my fingers together into a fist. I then run my fist in lukewarm water for about 10 seconds and the water should seep through the gaps in my fingers and soak up the oatmeal. I then open up my fist and drip several drops of water into the oatmeal so it comes saturated and soft. I would then spend about 1 minute massaging the oatmeal on my face. Just a little note, it can be messy so make sure you lean over the sink so the excess oatmeal will fall into the sink and not into your clothes. I rinse the oatmeal off using lukewarm water and pat my face dry. 

Skin benefits
Whilst rinsing the face, I can already feel my skin feeling silkier. My face looked glowy, radiant and smooth. I can't actually explain how much I love this remedy so hopefully you guys can see the results yourself through pictures. Both oatmeal AND yogurt has saved my skin many times. Unlike a lot of cleansers, this won't dry out your face or irritate your skin. It works wonders! My skin has thanked me visually. 

Oatmeal bath

I've ditched my obsession for hot bubble baths for lukewarm oatmeal baths now. The oatmeal turns the water milky and soaking in it softens my skin and soothes my psoriasis and dry elbows. It feels absolutely amazing and I now take oatmeal baths 2-3 times a week. I especially recommend oatmeal baths to those who suffer from eczema or psoriasis. Even if you have normal skin? Nothing wrong with moisturising it even more right?
