Natural Skin Exfoliator

Grains have been used in skincare products for years and have been hailed as helping your skin look radiant and giving you a glow. All you need is to combine your grain with some water and few other natural ingredients found in your kitchen and you've got the most natural and easy to use skin exfoliator!


Skin exfoliation is the best way to shed dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling youthful and fresh. Exfoliation also allows for moisture to seep deeper into the skin leaving your skin much more hydrated.


Oats are an excellent natural skin exfoliator as they are anti-inflammatory, contain antifungal and antiviral properties and are packed with antioxidants! They really help to hydrate and moisturise dry and sensitive skin. Plus they are all natural and inexpensive compared to store-bought exfoliators.


If you are wanting a more moisturising exfoliator you can add some olive oil into your oats and water mixture to hydrate your skin whilst it is being exfoliated. Olive oil also leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and helps to repair your skin!


Honey is a great addition to your oats and water mixture if your skin tends to be on the oily side and you would rather steer clear of olive oil. Add a tbsp of honey to your oats and water and rub over your skin for a beautiful natural skin exfoliation.


Before applying either scrub, ensure your skin is clean and freshly washed so you are starting on a blank canvas. Then, choose which exfoliator you would like to use:


Hydrating:

1/2 cup of Rolled Oats

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1/2 cup water (you can add more if you want your mixture a little less thick)


Non-Oily:

1/2 cup of Rolled Oats

1 tbsp Honey

1/2 cup water (you can add more if you want your mixture a little less sticky!)


Ensure you have blended your oats so they are broken up into smaller pieces before adding the other ingredients. Then mix all ingredients together and rub over your face/body for a couple of minutes before rinsing with warm water.


Enjoy!
