Skin-loving benefits of oatmeal

Did you know that one of the best ever sensitive-skin soothers is hiding in your pantry right now?

Many people don’t. But the truth is that oatmeal is a wholesome way to feed your skin, with a wide variety of amazing skin-nourishing benefits.

Oats have been part of regular skincare regimens for centuries, being documented as far back in history as 2000 BC – and, oatmeal is one of the very few natural ingredients to get the stamp of approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

To get a little more specific, oatmeal – which is a natural product that has been ground or milled from oat grains, is exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals, and lipids. It also brims with the natural goodness of antioxidant properties – so it’s the ideal healer for sensitive skin.

So while you may enjoy a decadent serving of warm oatmeal for breakfast in the mornings, you can also enjoy the potent benefits it offers your skin when applied topically. If you’re a sensitive-skinned sugar, oatmeal will help calm, clean and nurture your skin in a pure but powerful way.

AMINO ACIDS

Oatmeal is blessed with an impressive 18 different amino acids – vital to healthy, glowing skin. These magical little building blocks help to heal the skin and body – rebuilding tissue and renewing skin. Your skin is very good at absorbing amino acids from oatmeal, making it the perfect ingredient in moisturizers and cleansers.

RELIEVER

Just like a warm bowl of oats makes you feel better when you’re down, it does the same for your skin when it’s feeling less than chipper. For sensitive skin that needs some tender love and relief, oatmeal has wonderful soothing properties that calm and relax the complexion.

CLEANSER

Oatmeal is super-effective at cleaning your skin while remaining gentle. Due to its saponin content, oatmeal is a natural skin cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils or dry it out.

MOISTURIZING

When combines with other hydrating ingredients, oatmeal is a natural and gentle moisturiser. Oatmeal is a humectant, which basically means that it assists your complexion in keeping moisture locked in. It’s one of Mother Nature’s best skin-loving ingredients for dewy, glowing, happy skin.

EXFOLIATING

Oatmeal has a lovely texture – grainy and thick, which makes it a naturally effective exfoliant. It helps your skin shed dry and dead skin cells to make room for fresh, healthy, new ones. It helps renew and rejuvenate your complexion without being overly harsh or aggressive – perfect for treating sensitive skin with care.

Top 5 skin-loving benefits of Aloe Vera

When it comes to pure skin health, the secret is often simplicity.

The humble Aloe Vera plant, potent in its power to soothe and detoxify, is one of the very best friends your skin will ever have. And while Aloe Vera loves all skin types, it’s particularly good for nurturing sensitive skin.

A little-known fact about Aloe is that there are more than 300 different species of it – most of which are loaded with a healthy variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes… all super powerful-healing properties.

In a nutshell, Aloe Vera is sensitive-skin magic.

That’s why, when we formulated our new sensitive skin regimen, we chose Aloe Vera as a key ingredient – and processed it through ColdPress  Technology® to retain its incredible wealth of nutrients. Direct from the fruit to your skin.

If you aren’t already convinced by the power on Aloe Vera in protecting your skin, here are the 5 top skin-loving benefits of Aloe Vera. You’re welcome.

1. Calming moisturizer

Aloe vera packs a whole bunch of minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, and vitamins A, C, and E – all of which collaborate and work together harmoniously to restore your skin’s barrier. With a wonderful ability to moisturize without being overpowering, Aloe Vera is equipped with polyphenols – which help ward off free radicals and signs of waging.

2. Super soother

Much like avocado, Aloe Vera is full of healthy fats – and these fatty acids, together with an enzyme called bradykinin, help calm, soothe and tranquillize skin. So it can breathe easy.

3. Kind regeneration

With its wonderful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, Aloe Vera protects sensitive skin against anything that won’t serve it. It help to regenerate skin and works to heal any red spots or marks.

4. Gentle exfoliation

Well-exfoliated skin usually equals glowing skin, which is why Aloe Vera works so well in both cleansers and moisturizers. It softens dead skin cells, making them easy to gently rinse away – giving skin a naturally healthy, bright appearance.

5. Soft toner

A natural astringent that works to perk up, tighten and firm your complexion skin – Aloe Vera is a gentle toner. It has the power to even out skin pigmentation, smooth out the appearance of blotchiness, and works to calm red spots.
