Oat Meal for breakfast…and your skin!

Oatmeal makes an absolutely fantastic breakfast if you are looking to kick start a healthy lifestyle. It is packed to the brim with all sorts of nutrients. It doesn’t taste half bad, either. However, did you know that oat meal has other benefits beyond that? In fact, it is highly beneficial for your skin.

On this page, we are going to take a quick look at some of the skin benefits that oatmeal has been proven to have! This is not a definitive list either. Rest assured, if you put that oatmeal on your skin, you are going to feel the benefits!

Acts as a natural cleanser

Oatmeal is rich in a compound known as saponin. This compound is known to have a cleansing impact on the skin. It is able to easily rid your skin of all of that dirt and grime which has gathered on it throughout the day. Since oatmeal is not chemical based, it is going to be a whole lot better for your skin too. There are plenty of people out there who have had their skin ravaged by chemical-based products. If you use oatmeal, then that is not going to be an issue at all!

You should also remember that oats are naturally gritty. This means that they are great at loosening up the dirt and grime which other cleaners may have difficulty in eradicating.

Soothes certain skin conditions

Many people who suffer from certain skin conditions, including the following, find that they benefit from using oatmeal on their skin:

  • Eczema
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Psoriasis

Using oatmeal on the skin acts as a natural soothing agent. Using it properly will quickly relieve any itch and soothe irritation. Using it on a daily basis even has the ability to keep certain skin conditions at bay.

Moisturizer

Oats are high in a number of lipids and proteins (we won’t go into depth on the ones inside of the oats!). These are known to have a moisturizing impact on the skin. If you use moisturizer on a daily basis, then turn towards oats. It is a natural solution and is going to be far better for your skin. After all, eventually your body is going to become used to the chemicals that you are putting on it, this means that the ‘standard moisturizers’ are going to have less of an impact.

Anti-ageing benefits

Oats also have an anti-ageing impact on the skin. This is because they are rich in antioxidants. They can help to reverse some of the damage caused by UV rays and chemicals on your skin. This will result in far younger looking skin. It will even eliminate the vast majority of your wrinkles, or at least reduce the appearance of them.

How to make it ?

It is actually pretty simple to start using oatmeal on your skin! You just need to mix it up in exactly the same way as you would normally make your oatmeal (you can make it with cold water, if you want!). Then it is just a case of slightly rubbing it against your skin. This will do most of the work. There are a few people out there who will also leave it on their skin for long periods of time. This is great if you want a nice, deep cleanse.

Why not try out oatmeal for your skin, today?

Let me tell you how it helps in nature while I will also let you in to a DIY cure too.

First let’s see what Fenugreek leaves are and from where did they actually evolve. Was it some scientist’s organic experiment, or some greedy witch’s spell set loose? Well Fenugreek is a plant that grows in nature every year while it has leaf bunches of two to three leaflets in it. It is grown all over the world while is quite dominated over the Indian sub-continent (near East). Growing countries include Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Morocco and such others.

  • They reduce skin inflammation in wounds as well as are great for treating burns and eczema through healing
  • It helps anti-aging (wrinkles, lines, spots) as it has vitamin B3 and repairs cells which have been damaged to produce new ones.
  • It is a great face organic scrub prepared through DIY preparations and gives glowing skin in addition to removing blackheads.
  • It reduces acne as it lessens oiliness on the skin through its face mask.

You could use this warm water to wash your face every day and see the results. These were two separate procedures for glowing skin but I combined both of them to receive such added benefits that I don’t need my base anymore! All I do is dab some moisturizer, put on my mascara and red lipstick and I am ready to glow out all day and all time! I keep my Fenugreek water handy and wash my face whenever I need to.

Some people would have tried everything but not gotten much instant results.

Well, I can help you with that as I have too many Fenugreek remedies, the question is, are you willing to ask or will you continue following chemical peels that have instant results?

A Fabulous Skincare for Oily Skin

Having Oily Skin can be a real pain ⇒ 8 Easy Step to kill that pain! Especially when you are constantly having bad breakouts. As someone with incredibly oily skin, I can tell you that I have done a lot of research on this in the hope of preventing such breakouts; and now I think I have found a routine that works well for me. I wanted to share this with you in the hope it does the same for you:)

1. Wash your Face

This might seem obvious but it’s surprising how much you can forget to do this sometimes. It’s easy enough to do when you have a shower, but you really should be washing your hair twice a day if you can. This way any build up of oil and dirt accumulated throughout the day can be washed off.

2. Exfoliate

When I was a teen, I didn’t really know what exfoliating was and I left it out of my skin routine. My skin was always flaky around my nose which caused more spots due to blocking my pores. When I finally started exfoliating, it took me a good year to find the right scrub for me. Now, I exfoliate usually once every week. List compelled by GingerFox.

3. Moisturising

To be honest, the first time I read about moisturising oily skin, I was skeptical. I mean- my skin was oily enough without adding anything else into the mix! However I was completely wrong. As I have sensitive skin I use simple light moisturiser, and it works wonders for me.

Another option here- to avoid any chemicals contained within conventional moisturisers- is to use Argan Oil. The first day I tried this, it felt strange. But after a few minutes it soaks right in and it is really nice. I also add in tea tree oil to mine because it has anti-bacterial properties.

4. Face Masks

Face masks are an essential part of any good skincare routine- however they are often forgotten. I recommend using a face mask once a week if possible, to provide a deep cleanse that may not be achieved with your every day face wash and make-up removers.

5. Diet

Diet is a big part of having healthy skin, because if you don’t look after yourself inside- your body won’t be healthy on the outside. Foods such as nuts and fish are good for skin because they contain essential vitamins.

Taking about nuts, I have concocted for you a lovely and amazing almond milk recipe that will make your skin glow naturally.

6. Drink Water

Drinking water is one of the best ways to rid your body of toxins. It is recommended to drink 8 glasses of water each day (2 litres).

21 Ways to Drink Water

If you aren’t keen on the taste of water- try adding in some fruit to it to give it some flavour. Lemon water is a brilliant way to cleanse your body and if you drink it first thing in the morning- it can help to kick start your metabolism.

PS – You can also drink lemon water.

7. Primer

The first time I wore make-up, nobody told me about using primer. It wasn’t until last year that I decided to give it a go. If you haven’t used primer before- you should.

It basically provides a barrier on your skin and stops foundation soaking into your pores and causing blockages. It also makes your make-up go on a lot further.

8. Sun care

I can’t urge this strongly enough: look after your skin when you go out in the sun. Not only can your skin become badly burnt, but you can end up with age spots and even cancer.

Sunrise | OrganicIsBeautiful
Sunrise | OrganicIsBeautiful

It is really important to wear sun lotion before you go out into the sun and also apply after sun when you come back inside to stop your skin from drying out. Another point is that when you sweat- your pores get blocked and this can cause spots- so make sure you wash your body well. The benzoin could also be a good alternative to protect your skin daytime.

6 Natural Cures to Dry Skin? Yes – DIY!

Dear Reader, I declare today, Confession day! You and I are now acquaintance, you know so much about my little life in Asia and my quest for natural remedies. Yet, I successfully manage to hide a side of my life away from you. How can I say that without making you run away? Hmm in a few words.

Amanda = Warm heart & Dry legs

I have always had dry skin legs, religiously dried no matter the expensive cream I buy that reveal inadequate. Today, in OiB, I want to share a few tips that I collected in this and this site that I intend to try for myself and hopefully be able to say:

Amanda = Warm heart & Dry legs.

Dry skin is an uncomfortable condition marked by scaling, itching, and cracking. It can occur for a variety of reasons. Some people have naturally dry skin and may experience frequent symptoms. However, even the oiliest skin can get dry at times.

For many, dry skin is not a sign of a skin condition or disease, but is simply caused by harsh soaps, itchy clothing, misusing moisturiser, and long, hot showers.

 1. Avocado Oil

In 2014, Elle Magasine wrote about “Is Avocado the New Coconut Oil?” As the name implies, avocado oil comes from the avocado fruit. Avocado oil is made by taking the pulp (the creamy insides of the fruit) and pressing it in a centrifuge (a drum that spins at high speed), which separates both the oil and the water from the pulp. Avocado oil applied topically helps relieve dry and itchy skin.

Once applied, avocado oil is deeply absorbed by the skin, thus making it an ideal moisturizer and skin care agent.

2. Olive Oil

Olive oil contains many antioxidants and healthy fatty acids that are good for your skin. It can soothe and condition dry skin all over your body.

Olive Oil | OrganicIsBeautiful
Olive Oil | OrganicIsBeautiful

Sharing with you today 3 different options when it comes to use this multi facet oil in your regimen:

  1. Dab a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil under your regular moisturizer.
  2. About a half an hour before taking a shower, rub some olive oil on your hands, legs and other areas with dry skin and massage lightly. Take a shower and then apply a light moisturizer.
  3. Mix two tablespoons of olive oil, four tablespoons of fine brown sugar, and one tablespoon of honey. Rub this homemade scrub on your dry skin using light, circular motions for a few minutes. Take a shower and then apply a light moisturizer.

3. Milk

Milk has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties that greatly help get rid of dry and itchy skin. Plus, the lactic acid in milk exfoliates dead skin cells and increases the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Also, it helps lighten your complexion.

Milk | OrganicIsBeautiful
Milk | OrganicIsBeautiful

Soak a washcloth in cold milk and put the cloth on your dry skin for five to seven minutes. Gently wash off the milk with another cloth soaked in lukewarm water. This way this natural moisturizer will remain on your skin. Do this every other day.
Add a few drops of rose water to four tablespoons of milk. Rub this solution all over your body.

Leave it on for 10 minutes and wash your body with cold water. Follow this remedy twice daily.

4. Honey
I already mention on OiB the wonderful properties of Honey when included in  your skin care treatment.Honey is considered one of the best natural moisturizers loaded with antioxidant, antimicrobial, and humectant properties.

Simple, I love it!

Thus, it helps lock in moisture to make your skin extra soft and smooth. Plus, honey has many essential vitamins and minerals that help improve your skin’s health.

  1. Before taking a bath or shower, rub honey all over your body and leave it on for five to 10 minutes. Repeat daily to enjoy well-moisturized skin.
  2. Measure out equal parts of unprocessed honey, beeswax, and olive oil. Melt the beeswax in a small pan over low heat.
  3. Remove it from the heat and mix in the honey and then the olive oil. Apply this mixture all over your body and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then take a shower. Repeat daily or every other day. It will increase circulation at the site, and encourages deeper moisturizing action.

NOTE: Always rinse well with warm water, and apply moisturizer afterward. Repeat the honey treatment at least once a day to help soothe your dry skin.

5. Yogurt
Yogurt is an excellent skin-hydrating agent. Plus, its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help soothe dry and itchy skin. Also, its lactic acid content helps get rid of any germs or bacteria that may cause dryness or itchiness.

Yogurt | OrganicIsBeautiful

  1. Apply fresh yogurt on your hands, face and legs and gently massaging it into your skin. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then take a bath or shower. The mild exfoliating action of yogurt will remove dry skin and leave your skin refreshed. Do this once daily.
  2. Mix one-half cup of yogurt and three tablespoons of mashed or blended papaya. Stir in a few drops each of honey and lemon juice. Apply it on your skin and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing it off with cold water. Do this once a week.

6. Coconut Oil
You already know from my earlier post that I am a big fan of coconut oil for:

Guess what? Coconut oil is ALSO Really good for treating dry skin. It has a good amount of fatty acids that make up for any loss of moisture from the skin.

You have 2 options:

  1. Liberally apply warm coconut oil all over your body before going to sleep. Wash it off in the morning. Do this daily to make your skin soft and smooth.
  2. Apply coconut oil on your dry skin after you take a bath or shower. When the skin is warm and supple from your bath, coconut oil is more readily absorbed. Do this daily.
