Skin Food Sunday: Oats

November 05, 2017




On this weeks Skin Food Sunday we are talking all things Oats. We know they are super for your body and keeping you full. But did you they have amazing benefits for the skin?

Oat Benefits for the skin:

1. Calms Inflammation:

Oats contain zinc which helps in healing inflammed skin like acne and rosacea.

2. Soothes Sensitive Skin:

The proteins in oats help maintain the skins natural barrier and protect it from harmful chemicals and pollutants.

3. Moisturises Skin:

Oats contain polysaccharides which form a protective layer on the skin and prevent it from moisture loss. The healthy fats found in oats help to rejuvinate skin cells and moisturise them.

4. Dry and Itchy Skin:

The sugars and fat in oats can relieve your skin from feeling uncomfortable. Soaking in a bath with oats added can be great for dermatitis or eczema on the skin.


Oat Face Mask:

- All skin types, especially dry, irritated skin.
-Mix 1 table spoon of oats with luke warm water and honey.
-Apply to skin and leave for as long as possible. Remove with luke warm water.
