Oatmeal, not just for breakfast anymore.

When you start looking around for something to help your skin, you often find a lot of ingredients that can be found in your kitchen. Lately I’ve found more and more containing regular old oatmeal. One use that I’ve been trying is to take a little oatmeal and throw it in your food processor or blender, then pulverize it until its a fine “flour”. Now add about a cup of this to your bathwater if you have any itchiness or use about a tablespoon with just enough water to make a paste. Take this paste and exfoliate your face. It won’t dry your skin and feels wonderful. oatmeal

Need a quick mask? Use a package of unsweetened instant oatmeal with a little warm water. Slather all over your face and neck. Wait 5-10 minutes and rinse. I haven’t tried this yet, but plan on it later today. Most of my winter skin and facial products contain oatmeal these days because of my eczema. I know this will be a cheaper route for me to go.
