Oatmeal for Skin!

A bowl of piping hot oatmeal is the healthiest way to start your day, says everybody. And why shouldn’t it be? Oats contain the just the right mix of proteins that keeps everybody fuelled up. And as it turns out, it is not just an apple a day that keeps the doctor away; oatmeal helps a great deal, too.

Many nutritionists and experts from makeup courses say that sweet oats are the right way to start the day. After all, oats are loaded with fibre; just one cup contains over 10 grams of proteins.

Oats are a nutritional powerhouse, and yet can be used for many DIY treatments. Have a look! 

Treating acne:  Cooked oatmeal is one of the best remedies for treating acne. Sounds unbelievable, right? Maybe, no. Here is all that you need to do (with oats!) to get rid of the acne.

Boils some oatmeal until it softens and keep it like that for over 15 minutes. Apply it over your face or on the affected area and rinse it off after 10 minutes with cold water. This absorbs all the excess oil and bacteria off your face, rejuvenates dead skin cells and helps combat acne, says a student of Cosmetology course for Beauty Skin.

Oats also help fight face dryness, especially during winters when skin becomes flaky and white. That is because oats contain polysaccharides which convert into a gel like substance when it comes in contact with water. It helps create a fine protective layer on the skin and hence keeps dryness at bay. You can make a mask of mashed bananas with a cup of crushed oatmeal and add a little of lukewarm milk to it. Create a paste of it, apply it to face and rinse with cold water after 15 minutes. This helps in replenishing the skin moisture and helps keep it soft, subtle and hydrated.
