Most of us associate oatmeal with a delicious and healthy breakfast. However, it turns out that they have excellent effects on our skin. Just make homemade cosmetics out of them!

Homemade cosmetics are becoming more and more popular among women. No wonder – they are natural, cheap and very effective. And besides, we can always add to them some ingredient from ourselves, so they will be tailored to our individual needs. It is worth knowing that many home cosmetics can be made using oatmeal

Oatmeal – health itself!

Oatmeal contains binders, i.e. plant-derived compounds with soothing and alleviating properties and making cell membranes more permeable. Thanks to this nutrients are better absorbed into the skin. It is also interesting that the flakes were put on the list of Food and Drug Administration. They have been recognized as a product not only medicinal, but also to promote skin regeneration

In turn, eating oatmeal provides the body with many valuable nutrients, i.a. calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron or zinc. They are also a source of dietary fiber. Eating them for breakfast is a portion of energy for the whole day. And using them in diet and cosmetics will undoubtedly have a great impact on our appearance and well-being.

Masque made of oatmeal, almonds and rosemary

To prepare such a mask we need:

Pour boiling water over the rosemary and leave it covered for about 15 minutes. Then grind with a grinder or grind in a mortar the oatmeal and put into a bowl. Add ground almonds.

Such a mask soothes irritations and moisturizes the skin

Oatmeal bath

Oatmeal can also be an excellent addition to a bath. It is worth knowing that such bath is recommended primarily for people with skin prone to allergies, sensitive, with psoriasis, inflammatory conditions or eczemas. A bath with oatmeal also brings relief in case of sunburn

To prepare it we will need;

  • 1/2 cup of oatmeal;
  • 4-5 tablespoons of milk powder;

  • in addition: a cotton bag or a cloth and string.

We mix the whole thing and put the finished slurry into the bag, then place it on the tap so that the water flows into it. If we do not mind, we can pour the pap directly into the bath.
