Oatmeal is a soothing ingredient for anyone with sensitive skin. With its high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory content, oatmeal can help with UV damage too.

It soothes your skin leaving it soft, supple, and lightly moisturized without heaviness or clogging.

Is Oatmeal a Good Exfoliator?

Because of its texture, oatmeal face scrub is a no brainer as an exfoliant for your youthful skin. Oatmeal cleanses away dead skin cells to reveal smooth and vibrant skin. All the while, oatmeal delivers antioxidants and minerals to tired or sun damaged skin. As a natural ingredient, it won’t dry like harsh chemical peels. If your skin needs a refresh, but you don’t want to over dry it, try an oatmeal face scrub. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, you’ll love all these oatmeal benefits for skin.

How Does Oatmeal Help Acne?

If you haven’t tried it yet, an oatmeal mask is a great way to experience the benefits of what oats can do for your skin, especially if you are looking for alternative ways to prevent acne. When used topically, oats absorb excess oil on skin, remove dead skin cells, reduce spots, and leave you with soft polished skin. Oatmeal is a gentle, natural ingredient with a lot to offer. You may even enjoy the benefits more with an oat milk latte in hand!
