1. Cleanses and Exfoliates: Oatmeal is a great cleansing and exfoliating agent because of its abrasive texture. It helps to remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells while also exfoliating the skin, leaving it looking and feeling smoother and brighter.
2. Reduces Inflammation: Oatmeal has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness and irritation. It can help soothe itchy, inflamed skin and help to reduce redness caused by sunburn, eczema, or acne.
3. Moisturizes Skin: Oatmeal is a natural humectant, meaning it helps to draw moisture from the air to the skin. This helps to keep skin hydrated and can even help prevent wrinkles.
4. Fights Acne: Oatmeal contains saponins, which are natural cleansing agents that help to cleanse the skin and fight off acne-causing bacteria.
