How To Best Exfoliate Dead Winter Skin

Long gone are the winter days when you began it with comforting, warm oatmeal and ended them with a relaxing warm bath. Oatmeal has been that cozy comfort that helps the chill subside from within and use with at home treatments to exfoliate old skin tissue externally for complete renewal of the body.
You may also have heard of nourishing facials and skin care products that use oatmeal to naturally slough off and soothe your skin. Oatmeal is fortified with vitamins, minerals (iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium) and amino acids that will undeniably enhance the beauty of your skin.

At the end of the next long work day consider some of these robust scrubs that rejuvenate as they reveal healthy fresh skin. Oatmeal will slough off the rough weather beaten upper epidermal layers for refined softness. In organic variety it effectively treats sensitive, dry and oily skin alike. Acne, inflammation, blemishes, eczema and psoriasis are relieved with the gentle application of oatmeal as a scrub.

Organic Oatmeal and Avocado Scrub
3 tablespoons fine oatmeal
¼ fresh Avocado (ripe and peeled)
2 tablespoons goat’s milk

Mash the avocado and mix with the other organic ingredients in a glass bowl. Massage this mixture into freshly cleansed skin and let sit for 15 minutes. You can apply just to the face or your entire body. Either way prepare for a potent exfoliating-hydration experience that will leave your skin buttery smooth!

Irish Oatmeal and Pomegranate Scrub
4 tablespoons organic Irish oatmeal (ground)
¼ cup pomegranate seeds
2 tablespoons organic honey (warmed)

This is the antioxidant packed scrub that protects from environmental free radicals as it polishes off wintry dead skin. Generously massage this mixture into your skin, allow it to absorb for 15 minutes and rinse with warm water. The honey will help to heal blemishes and other surface flaws as the oatmeal gently exfoliates for suave fresh appearance. Choose a moisture rich cream to finish.

Take advantage of this at home spa treatment and indulge in the exfoliating benefits of comforting oatmeal that has been reliably used to promote skin health for nearly 4,000 years. Oatmeal is a very versatile form of natural skin care that can be easily combined at home with essential oils, herbs and fresh fruits to personalize for your specific needs.
