Yes, you read right! I have been inspired by two YouTubers to try this for myself, using oatmeal as a cleanser!
|This is the oatmeal I used, right out of my cupboard!|
I personally really love oatmeal. I love to eat it and I like the smell and texture oddly enough. I took enough oatmeal to cover the palm of my hand. Clenching the oats in my fist, I held my hand under warm water to saturate the oats to make them soft and create a milky cleanser. Taking the wet oats, I gently rubbed them on my face in small, circular motions. Again, I feel a little strange liking the smell of oatmeal, but I really didn't mind it at all. The oats gently exfoliated my skin and I could feel that the texture of the oats was really getting my skin clean. The obvious downside to using oatmeal as a cleanser is that you have chunky oats all over your face! Not too sure that my sink enjoyed all those oats :) After rinsing off the oatmeal from my face, I immediately noticed that my skin felt clean, tight, refreshed and suprisingly brighter! After cleansing my face, I immediately follow with my moisturizer and I noticed that it felt like my moisturizer sank in to my pores much more than normal, which means that the product is working better for the skin! Now even though again, the mess I can see would be hard for some people to look past, so far I am willing to continue with this new skincare change to see how my skin progresses over the next few weeks of using the oatmeal. I will be checking in to give updates on how my skin has changed due to the change of using oatmeal as my new cleanser. I hope you follow me on this journey for what I hope to be a great new skincare breakthrough for me!
Until next time,
