Let’s start removing chemical laden beauty products and beat the winter dryness and other skin issues with natural home remedies. For me it’s quite a fun including DIY method in my beauty journey. It’s been a steady journey to go for toxin free, healthy ingredients from my pantry to my skin and hair. Here, I am going to share with you one ingredient that I use every day to get relief from all the skin issues.
And this ingredient is Oat meal. I use oats in powdered form. Oats is considered as the saviour for dry, itchy and irritated skin. It may also restore skin’s pH balance. Being a humectant, oat helps your skin retain moisture and when used with other hydrating ingredients it gives your skin a healthy dewy finish. A sensitive skin can use oats without any irritation and redness.
So, let’s share some easy, yet effective cleansers and scrubs, the ingredients for which you can easily get on your kitchen shelf. Don’t worry you don’t have to burn your purse to buy those ingredients.
Cleanser and Scrub Using Oats:
Before using oats in your DIY product grind oats and use. It’ll be easy to mix and apply.
Oats and Honey Cleanser:
Take two tsp ground oats and one tsp each of honey and aloe vera gel to form a soft paste. You don’t need to add water to the paste.
Apply this paste on your face and neck, keep it for a couple of minutes and then rub softly in circular motion before washing it off with water.
Benefits of using this cleanser:
I use this cleanser everyday to cleanse my skin thoroughly, as well as to get my skin proper nourishment, fight acne and reduce blemishes and scars. If you want to use it as a mask, you have to keep the mask for 10 minutes and wash off.
Oats and Flower petals cleanser:
