The Best Cleanser You Should Have

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

If you're familiar with Bubzbeauty and follow her on youtube, you've probably already seen this best kept secret. Oatmeal as a cleanser! Oatmeal is incredibly healthy for your skin and the work it does to heal and make your skin glow, is astounding. Here is the video as a starter,



I've heard of oatmeal before but for some reason I never wanted to try it. I went through a natural-products only phase where I would use baking soda, water, oils..etc only on my face and yet, oatmeal didn't appeal to me.. WHY?? (I even went "caveman" and would only wash my face with water, oh the mistakes I made with my skin...) I'm happy Bubz made this video and included pictures because it really got me thinking. I went to my local grocery store and bought some oatmeal, and lucky me it was on sale for $1! HA, EXTRA HAPPY.




Sorry, forgot to turn the packaging around for the English side! ^-^;; It's Robin Hood brand large flake oatmeal! Not only can you use it on your body but you can eat it too. yum yum, ily oatmeal!


I put a bit on my hand and let some cool water get soaked up, mix then massage it in! I let it dry, it usually takes around five minutes so I don't do this on days where I have school or work in the AM. The best thing about oatmeal is that it doesn't strip your natural oils and moisturizes!


So, let's take a look at the benefits for incorporating oatmeal into your skincare routine!

  • soothing and gentle cleanser
  • anti-inflammatory
  • aids in dry skin, chicken pox, eczema, and more.
  • removes impurities
  • exfoliant
  • provides a healthy appearance!
I honestly feel that the combination of oatmeal and microdermabrasion have made my skin it is today. It may not look perfect as of now but it is ten times greater than it was half a year ago. Oatmeal is my HG day cleanser and I'm pretty sure I'll continue using this for years to come.


Hope you guys give it a chance, you wont regret it! ^^ When my skin is completely clear I'll be posting before and after pictures. It will be my epic post!
