Oatmeal saved my skin

I had a little break out series on my face during the summer. I was eating clean, cleaning my brushes regularly, drinking plenty of water, taking off my makeup every day before sleep ... but still I got annoying pimples and the worst part is that I get a pleasure from squeezing them. GUILTY!
Luckily, I know how to make my skin feel better and today I'll tell you how.

I use oatmeal in my skin care routine. Yup, you've read that right.

Oatmeal acts like an exfoliant, it's really gentle and moisturizes the skin.
I actually keep some oats in a plastic container in my bathroom. Make sure you clean up the mess afterwards, my mum was asking me if I ate my breakfast in bathroom :D

How do I use it?
I put some oatmeal in my hand, put some water in there and oats become softer. Then I massage it all over my face avoiding the eye area, because it's extremely delicate. I massage for about a minute or so and then rinse. You'll notice how your skin is soft, fresh and brighter. I was doing this routine for about a week and my skin got (almost) back to normal.

You can also make a face mask. You can mix your oatmeal with some yogurt or honey, apply it to your face, wait for 5-10 minutes and then rinse.

You can also use it in the same way for your body. You can just use it as a body scrub (you'll just need bigger amount) or make a bath out of it or even just for your feet or hands. You're creative people, you can figure out other innovative ways of using oatmeal on your body :)

Hope this helps to some of you!
