Acne treatment

Cooked oats can absorb and remove oil and bacteria from your skin. It is one of the most convenient remedy to treat acne. Just save some cooked oats from your breakfast and apply it to your face. Doing this regularly will significantly reduce and heal acne.

Skin moisturiser

When you apply cooked oats on your skin it forms a fine film because of the beta-gluten in oats. This fine film penetrates deeper into the skin and moisturises it. Doing so will also heal your skin against abrasions and improve collagen deposition.

To lighten skin

Many cosmetology procedures use oats in their skincare products because of its effective properties. One such property is skin lightening. Use it on tanned or sunburnt skin to lighten it and improve the texture and tone too.

To exfoliate skin

You can make your own exfoliating body scrub or face pack with oats and baking soda. This will not only scrub away dead and dry skin but will also moisturise it and give it a healthy glow.
