Skin Care Tip: Oatmeal for Oil Prone Skin

submitted by Anonymous

Tip description / details:
Here's a great tip that I use, you may or may not have heard of: using raw oatmeal for the skin. I just started using it recently for my combination skin and it is fabulous. All I use is plain old-fashioned generic oats that come in the huge can. They are so inexpensive at less than $3. I just take a very small scoop of oats, about 1/4 cup or a little less and mix in about 1 or 2 tablespoons of warm water to make a paste. I massage into my skin for about one to two minutes and then let it sit for around half an hour or until completely dry. Rinse off with warm water and then splash with really cold water. I can really see and feel a difference in my skin. It tightens your face nicely too.

Raw Rolled Oats, Warm Water

How to prepare:
Mix about 2 tblsp of warm water into 1/4 cup oats. Mix into a thick paste.

How to use:
Massage gently into thoroughly clean skin for about 1 or 2 minutes. Allow to dry completely before rinsing. Finish after warm rinse with a splash of COLD water to close pores.

Results (observed by submitter):
Tighter, less oily skin.

Costs involved:
