Oatmeal!

OCurlyDOCurlyD Posts: 12Registered Users
I got the idea from a youtube girl and have been using it for a few weeks.. it works great! just take a little handful of oatmeal, run your fist under water, and spread it all over your face, and rinse. it makes your skin soo smooth, tightens up the pores and keeps down acne :love7:
If you have pretty bad acne it might not work for that, but i just use oatmeal unless i notice a breakout in which case i just use gentle soap.
i've heard you can mix it with other things, like honey.. anybody done this?

    I will definitely have to try this! Thanks :)

    I will also try it with honey, since my dad is a honeybee keeper, so it will probably work really well. I will post how it works for me! :D
    Hey, I'm Emily. I haven't got a really good picture of my curls yet, but hopefully soon I will. My hair is type is a 3a/b I believe. Spirals all over the place. Super soft that people can't believe it.. I am currently trying to grow it out. never had it past my shoulders before :)
    I use Herbal Essences Totally Twisted shampoo & conditioner. I let my hair air dry.. Haven't used any kind of heat in about 6 months. My hair doesn't straighten well.

    Oooh cool, never thought to use oatmeal before. I think I'll definitely try this out! I've used honey on my skin before.. I've heard honey helps minimize redness and it's great for acne prone skin.
    Type 3b with some 3a and a few 2c strands
    Still trying to find my HG products, so far I'm really loving the Shea Moisture Line and LA Looks Sports Gel

    I watched her video! :D
    I tried it but didnt quite like it because it was a tad too messy and clogged my drains :x
    Might re-try it.

    You may find this old thread on a skin care routine using oatmeal interesting.

    You can also make a scrub with oatmeal. I throw some in my coffee grinder (coffee is also good for skin) then mix it with lemon juice and honey. Your face feels super soft afterwards. I use it once a week.
