While many of us have learned that oatmeal is extremely good for problematic skin most of us are unsure of just what kind to use or exactly how to use it. In my experience I’ve found that using old-fashioned & uncooked oats works best. The catch? You have to grind them up (mortar and pestle) if you want a ‘neat’ look for however you’re using. Hey a little sweat is good for the skin.

*Whenever possible use organic & the most natural form of the following ingredients.

Oatmeal Cleanser
2tbsp fine oatmeal
6tbsp plain yogurt
2tbsp lemon juice
1tbsp chopped parsley
2tsp olive oil

Mix all ingredients in a fairly wide bowl.

Using clean hands rub cleansing mixture all over your face (avoiding eye areas of course). Gently massage with fingertips for about 5 minutes. Rinse with warm water *remember hot water damages your skin & will also cook the oatmeal in this case- splash your face with cold water and gently (lightly) pat dry with a clean cloth. Use this treatment 3 times a day, for most though only 2 is possible- morning and evening. 

Please remember to protect your skin especially when using acidic ingredients. Exposing bare skin to sunlight after using such products will further damage skin – use sunscreen!

    1. Well thanks for commenting. But you’d have to be debating against mother nature herself if you underestimate the power using natural products on your skin. Ever had poison ivy? First thing you get is an {oatmeal} treatment for the irritation…try putting a cup in a small cotton baggie or super clean sock + soak in a warm bath for a few then let me know where your debate lies. Cheers!
