Natural Inexpensive Facial Cleanser

5 years ago

So lately I have been trying out new skin care products over the past few months. I have tried everything, I have a shelf of facial cleansers that I have half full. But a few days ago I started using something that I heard of online to clean my face and I am in LOVE!!!!

Wanna guess what it is??!!??
Well the picture probably gave it away...its OATMEAL!!!!
You may be surprised to learn that oatmeal; yes that wonderful cereal we enjoy for breakfast, (or maybe not!), is one of the best natural treatments for dry skin. Plain rolled oats, can be used to make a gentle and very effective natural skin cleanser, facial scrub, and soothing facial mask. An excellent multi-purpose skin care treatment, oatmeal helps to relieve dryness, restoring natural moisture balance to aid in healing minor irritations due to the many causes and sources of skin sensitivities. Minor skin irritations can be caused by sensitivities to the ingredients in skin care products, exposure to chemicals found in household cleaning products, exfoliation with the wrong product, excessive scrubbing or rubbing during the exfoliation process, and many other factors. Cleansing the face with oatmeal helps to soothe skin irritation and reduce discomfort.
Oatmeal, when used as a skin cleanser, actually absorbs and removes surface dirt and impurities while providing very gentle exfoliation, leaving skin smooth, soft, and clean, without soap. As a facial mask, oatmeal deep cleanses pores without irritating and drying out skin. And as a facial scrub, oatmeal gently but effectively removes dead skin cells, to reveal softer, smoother looking skin. In addition, cleansing and exfoliating with oatmeal provides the bonus of a natural, healthy glow.

Now there are two ways that you can use it. The first is yo grind the oats in blender or food processor until oats have the consistency of flour. Put this in container with a tight fitting lid. This way is easier if you are going to use it as a mask. All you would do is take about a tablespoon of the ground oatmeal in the palm of your hand and mix it with a little water to form a paste. Apply it evenly over your face and neck, and relax for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water.
The second way is to just not grind it. I like this way for just washing my face, even though it can get a little messy. Take about a tablespoon in the palm of your hand, add a little water, then just rub it over your face for about a minute, and rinse off.

I would recommend using makeup remover or wipe to get rid of your makeup prior to cleansing with the oatmeal. I use baby wipes to remove my makeup at night, and then some eye makeup remover to help with my waterproof mascara.
In the couple of days that I have been using this I`ve noticed a change in my skin. It doesn`t get as oily throughout the day. It is smoother with a more even tone. Alot of my redness is gone. I honestly think that I will never purchase another facial cleanser. You cant beat the price of oatmeal either.

I hope you try it out!!
