Homemade Beauty Treatments

Oats have been used in beauty treatments for centuries. Their texture makes them a perfect skin exfoliant. They’re also great for face masks and skin cleansers, and you’ll find them in several ranges of commercial shampoos, soaps, moisturisers and skin cleansers and face masks. Oatmeal baths are great for calming sensitive skin – they can help to relieve the itch from chicken pox, exzema and other uncomfortable conditions. It’s easy to make your own soothing oat bath by grinding two or three cups of porridge oats in a blender and adding to a warm bath.
