Oatmeal, not just for breakfast

Oatmeal has long been a staple on tables across the world as a breakfast item. It has been well established as a good source of nutrition. Something many of us do not know is that is one of the best ways to treat dry skin.

The soothing and gentle natural skin cleanser is wonderful for those with sensitive skin. Many of us suffer from minor skin irritations caused by the ingredients in some of the skin care products we have used, chemicals in our household cleaners, exfoliating with the wrong products, and excessive scrubbing while exfoliating. Using oatmeal during this process will help to soothe the irritation and help decrease the discomfort level.
Oatmeal helps to absorb and remove dirt and other impurities on the surface of our skin. The benefits do not stop there. Oatmeal exfoliates the skin extremely gently, leaving the skin soft and smooth.
Oatmeal can be used in many facial care products. For a deep pore cleansing treatment that does not irritate the skin, use a facial mask. To get rid of those dead skin cells that keep us from looking our best, an oatmeal facial scrub will help give you that natural, youthful, healthy glow.
