Spring Health & Beauty Tip 28 – Aveeno

This is my absolute beauty product of the moment.  It was actually prescribed for my daughter who has eczema but I had to buy my own before I stole all of her as it made my skin so lovely.  Aveeno is Oat based (most moisturisers are petroleum based) and just leaves you skin feeling gorgeous.

Definitely my hero product of the summer.

Spring Health & Beauty Tip 25 – Oat Bath

An oat bath is often recommended for kids who have chicken-pox which is actually how I found out about it.  But it’s not just chickenpox’s that its good for, Oats and Oatmeal are fantastic for the skin.

How?

Put some oats in a cloth and tie it around the bath tap so that as the bath is running the water is coming through the oats and cloth.  This will produce a wonderful milk from the oats.  Another little tip – I often use a hair band to secure the fabric around the tap.

Why?

  • An Oat Bath is Cleansing – the oat particles stick to dirt and dead skin cells allowing them all to be washed away.
  • It’s Soothing – which is why it is often recommended for chicken-pox or eczema.
  • Its Moisturising – the oats restore moisture into the skin and balance the skins natural pH.
  • It’s Protective – the milk from the oats leaves a lovely protective layer over the skin that makes you feel like you’ve moisturised as soon as you get out of the bath.
