Oatmeal tastes great, but it also has amazing benefits for your skin!
Oatmeal is moisturizing; it balances the pH level of your skin, it relieves dry skin, reduces inflammation, cleanses the skin, and is a great treatment for acne-prone skin.
October 29th is National Oatmeal Day, celebrate by making yourself a bowl of oatmeal or trying out one of these DIY Oatmeal Beauty Products below!
