This Calming Oat Cleanser is ideal for people with sensitive skin, particularly if prone to eczema. Oats are some of nature’s most effective skin treatments and beauty enhancers. Oats have a calming effect on your skin thanks to their anti-inflammatory properties.
• 2 tbsp organic porridge oats • 4 tbsp water
Soak the oats in the cold water and leave them to stand for 30 minutes. Sieve the oats, squeezing them to get all the liquid out.
Apply the oat liquid to your skin with cotton wool pads. Wash your face with warm water and a flannel. End your wash with a splash of cold water and then gently dry your face. This cleanser can be used as part of your daily cleansing routine. It can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 days so it’s best to make a small batch each time.
