Oats for beautiful skin & hair!

The wonderful oats are nowadays one of the most favorite breakfasts and are a base for many healthy snacks! Although oats deserve a special article about their use in cooking, we will limit our information to the cosmetic use of oats that have been loved so much! In fact, if we consider how important nutrition is for maintaining healthy skin and hair, then oats certainly contribute nutritionally as well!

Oats are mild, soothing and very emollient, making them ideal for sensitive baby skin and for people with very sensitive skin prone to itching, redness and irritation. It can be used for deep hydration on mature and very dry skin

The forms in which it can be used are many, from oat milk to poultice. Persistent inflammations, acne, eczema and even psoriasis, have spectacular results with the use of a poultice. Of course, in some conditions such as psoriasis, the treatment is symptomatic and not curative. But in the case of acne, when used in combination with other natural – plant products, the results can be permanent and impressive!

Oats also act as emollients for the hair, as well as for the skin. You can wash your hair with oat milk instead of a commercial conditioner for a silky effect without weighing the hair down. 

The recipes are many if you have some oats at home! We will give you 3 examples for three different uses:

1. Oat mask with banana to nourish and deeply moisturize the face. Mix a banana with two tablespoons of crushed oats and a teaspoon of honey and spread all over the face with gentle movements. The skin after using this so simple mask is soft, shiny and visibly cleaner, as oats also have excellent cleansing properties! Whatever is left over, you can eat it without fear!

2. Body and face peeling with oat flakes and almond oil. It is best to have whole oat flakes available in this case as it will help prevent them from immediately softening from absorbing the oil. For 1 tablespoon of oil of your choice, add 2 tablespoons of oats and mix. Gently massage in circular motions on face and/or body and rinse.

3. Oat milk for rich hair and body hydration. Prepare oat milk in advance and at the end of the bath, rinse with it. You can optionally add essential oil of your choice! For oat milk, you will need to soak oats in water. Calculate about 100g. Oats for 1 liter of water. After it has soaked for at least 1 hour, put it in the blender for 2 minutes and then strain or ideally pass the contents through a cloth and keep the water you will strain. Squeeze the cloth well so that as many nutrients as possible come out with the water!

You can do many wonderful things with oats such as foot baths, salves, and even hair peeling! Although the preparations seem too easy to be good, don’t forget that oats are rich in silicic acid, proteins, calcium, iron and several other minerals and vitamins that are valuable for our skin and hair just as they are for our body !
