Ingredient Indulge: Oatmeal

16 Jan

Let’s talk about Oatmeal.

You may be surprised to learn that oatmeal is one of the best natural treatments for dry skin. Plain rolled oats, can be used to make a gentle and very effective natural skin cleanser, facial scrub, oatmeal bath and soothing facial mask.

An excellent multi-purpose skin care treatment, oatmeal helps to relieve dryness, restoring natural moisture balance to aid in healing minor irritations due to the many causes of skin sensitivities. Cleansing the face with oatmeal handmade soap helps to soothe skin irritation and reduce imitation. Oatmeal, when used as a skin cleanser, actually absorbs and removes surface dirt and impurities while providing very gentle exfoliation, leaving skin smooth, soft, and clean. Oatmeal gently but effectively removes dead skin cells, to reveal softer, smoother looking skin. In addition, cleansing and exfoliating with oatmeal provides the bonus of a natural, healthy glow.

Here is an Oatmeal Facial Mask that you can try at home

Oatmeal Facial Mask:

  1. Pour a small amount of ground oatmeal into palm
  2. Add a little water to make a paste. (For a more moisturizing mask, use milk instead of water.)
  3.  Apply to face and throat and leave on skin for about 5 minutes.
  4. Rinse. Follow with moisturizer.

Bath Savvy is proud to use this ingredient in our products and see the Oatmeal Handmade Soap & Oatmeal Bath Teas we have to offer.
