I remember growing up my mom and grandma sharing tips and beauty secrets with me. At the time some of them sounded very odd, especially the ones involving the use of oatmeal. Now that I’m well into my 30s, I have found myself trying some of those tips and beauty secrets with great success.
The winter months are always the hardest on my skin and my grandma used to tell me to add a cup of oatmeal, some milk and some honey to my bathwater to make my skin more moisturized. I gave it a try last year and was pleasantly surprised by the results. I have also made an oatmeal paste for those stubborn acne spots, which helps clear up problem spots.
These days with three young children underfoot I find myself using quick and easy products to help with my skincare routine. I have been using AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion and AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, with great success. The essential ingredient of AVEENO® Active Naturals Oat has helped my skin to become soft, moisturized and silky despite the beginnings of this harsh wintery cold weather.
