Oatmeal is one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods out there, making fat loss a breeze. What many still do not know is that we can also take advantage of it by including it in our beauty regimen. And it is so cheap that your budget will not be an excuse!
Moisturizing and cleansing properties
Oatmeal has been shown to be perfect for removing impurities and brightening the face. Simply mix oatmeal with a little coconut oil, brown sugar and a splash of warm water. The result? A powerful, natural and effective exfoliant.

Oatmeal is made up of saponins, which have important cleaning properties and help to generate abundant foam. It is commonly added to shampoos and soaps for a reason (makes sense, right?). It is ideal for sensitive skin because it moisturizes and reduces dryness.
Works like a dry shampoo
I bet you didn't know! I confess that it is one of my best and most recent discoveries. Not only does it help reduce the appearance of hair dirt, but it also calms the itchiness that can occur. Grind the oats into flakes (or buy oatmeal) and apply it to the scalp as a dry shampoo. Comb very well.
Oatmeal can help you relax from your own shower. Prepare a warm bath with a cup of oatmeal and some aromatic oil. Dive for half an hour while you relax. Oatmeal will help remove impurities and leave your skin moisturized.
Controls high pH levels
Whaaat? You are right. Dry or itchy skin is also a sign of high pH. But guess that? Oatmeal controls the matter by relieving the itching sensation, and of course, nourishing it in depth.
