Sweet Sweet Oatmeal

I basically enjoy oatmeal every morning for breakfast.  I believe that I’ve tried almost everything in it from nuts, fruit, brown sugar, cinnamon, blueberries and on and on.  I love it!  Oatmeal is not just for breakfast. You may be surprised to learn that oatmeal; yes this wonderful breakfast cereal which is now being served at McD’s; is awesome for your skin.  Oatmeal is one of the best natural treatments for dry skin.  Oatmeal helps to relieve dryness, restoring natural moisture balance to aid in healing minor skin irritations.
I love to enjoy a simple and quick oatmeal facial at home and I would like to share the recipe with you.

Oatmeal Facial Recipe:
To enjoy the benefits of oatmeal skin care you will need the following:
~Whole Rolled Oats (not instant oatmeal), found in your health food store
~Blender or Food Processor
Directions: Grind oats in blender or food processor until oats have a fine consistency. Pour into a jar, cover and use as follows.
Oatmeal Facial:
Pour a small amount of ground oatmeal into palm, and add a little water to make a paste. Apply to face and throat and massage onto skin. Rinse and follow up with natural moisturizer.
Here is a treasure that I created in Etsy using the search word Oatmeal.

I have just created a new batch of my Honey Bee Oats & Cinnamon soap.  This soap is loaded with oatmeal.  This oatmeal soap will remove surface dirt and impurities while providing a very gentle exfoliation, leaving skin smooth, soft, and clean.
I hope that you enjoyed your Holiday weekend as much as I did over the past Thanksgiving weekend.  It was awesome to take some time off work and hang out with my family.
Smiles, Paula
