Oats and oat products provide exceptional benefits for the skin. They are rich in vitamins A, E and B as well as minerals like calcium, zinc, iron and manganese.
Oat oil is a wonderful oil for dry and itchy skin because it has great moisturising properties and the ability to restore the skin barrier.
It is very soothing and healing for the skin and has strong anti-inflammatory properties which make it very good for skin prone to eczema, itchiness, redness and dryness.
Oatmeal also has rich antioxidant properties and helps undo damage done to your skin by pollution, UV rays and chemicals.
In Facial Oils I use Arctic Oat Extract which is a very concentrated extract from oats that are grown and harvested in the polar area in Finland. You can find its soothing and hydrating properties in the following Facial Oils.
