DIY: Oatmeal Cleanser

Hey Guys,
     So this is a new series I just started and in this series I will have homemade remedies and DIY solutions to your beauty problems. Okay so today's first DIY post is going to be about homemade oatmeal cleanser.

Oatmeal is a great, natural nonporeclogging moisturizer that calms the skin and reduces puffiness and redness.Plain rolled oats, can be used to make a gentle and very effective natural skin cleanser, facial scrub, and soothing facial mask. An excellent multi-purpose skin care treatment, oatmeal helps to relieve dryness, restoring natural moisture balance to aid in healing minor irritations due to the many causes and sources of skin sensitivities. Minor skin irritations can be caused by sensitivities to the ingredients in skin care products, exposure to chemicals found in household cleaning products, exfoliation with the wrong product, excessive scrubbing or rubbing during the exfoliation process, and many other factors. Cleansing the face with oatmeal helps to soothe skin irritation and reduce discomfort.
