Skin-calming oatmeal has been used for centuries as a way to both soothe aches and moisturize skin. It has been used since the time of the Egyptians. Perhaps even earlier, to maintain a beautiful face. Even regions of the world are historically arid and harsh on the skin.

Oatmeal is warming, filling breakfast food. It also contains some vitamins and minerals and natural moisturizers, making it an essential ingredient for any skincare routine.

Oatmeal holds a special place in the heart of women who have chronically dry and irritated skin. However, oats contain unique lipid formation and calming components that soothe redness and correctly hydrate the skin, unlike any other ingredient.

Oatmeal packs are a traditional remedy for rashes caused by anything from allergies to poison ivy. Naturally, cooling reduces itchiness, which means that the affected area is less likely to continue to be irritated.

When used as a bath soak, it can calm and hydrate the entire body. However, if you do not have time for a bath, you can add oatmeal to make an all-natural face mask and apply it to your face. As it is hydrating, it is also cleansing it, pulling impurities out of your face, and as you wash it away, sloughing off dead skin cells.

Oatmeal’s shape and density make it a gentle exfoliator. Add it to your cleanser to make it perfect for women who want to exfoliate their skin without causing redness and irritation that harsh scrubs and chemicals can create.

If you have itchy or chronically dry skin, you may have an unbalanced pH level. Oatmeal’s natural pH is similar to our complexion levels. Applying an oatmeal-containing product to your face can help to get rid of that itchiness naturally.

Also, oatmeal contains some different kinds of lipids. Once they are absorbed, they attract and retain moisture. Lipids provide constant moisture to your skin all day. If you have wrinkled or sagging skin, applying a moisturizing oatmeal product will improve your complexion's tightness and fullness.

Just as oat attracts oils once it has been absorbed into the skin, your face will be healthier with natural moisturization from these oils. This will leave your skin fresh and clean without any excessive oiliness. It can even be used as a dry shampoo! Find all-natural organic skincare products with oatmeal!
