Oatmeal.. Our grandmas used to eat it, babies eat, I eat it (come on, it is delicious with fruits, milk and cinnamon, smoothies!), but.. What’s the point of writing about oatmeal in a Beauty Blog? I’ll show you right now! First, let’s understand the benefits of oatmeal to our skin health:
- Treatment of Acne:
Oatmeal is a great remedy to treat acne, because not only it has anti-inflammatory properties, but it heals the skin and prevents the redness caused by acne.
- Skin Moisturizer, Lightening and Cleanser:
Oatmeal is effective in fighting dull, flaky dryness, working as a natural moisturizer and scrub. Applying oatmeal to your skin is an excellent moisturizer, because it holds the natural water in your skin, providing the skin to stay healthy and preventing any dryness it may occur. Not only that, but it’s a natural gentle scrub, getting rid of dead cells, and healing your skin at the same time. Some scrubs can be harsh on the skin, but oatmeal is gentle and natural. It’s recommended to all skin types. Oatmeal is known as a natural lightening, being used in cosmetics nowadays to clear the dark spots caused by acne, sun or aging.
- Relieves Itchiness:
It is clinically effective in healing dry and itchy skin. it can be mixed with warm water to form a thick paste and applied over itchy skin to get immediate relief from itching.
Why does oatmeal do all that to our skin? Well, basically, oatmeal is rich in skin friendly ingredients, such as A and B “oat” acid, pantothenic acid, salicylic acid, vitamins B1 and B2, beta-glucan and a high % of amino acids. It has anti-oxidants, which protects the skin from free radicals and it is anti-inflammatory. Oatmeal is great to all skin types. From oily to dry skin, it’ll work doing just what you need to achieve the clean, bright, healthy and perfect skin. I tried it, my face looked so much better after I started to wash it using oatmeal. I didn’t stop using my cosmetics, but I just added the oatmeal to my beauty routine.
Team oatmeal, yay!
