January calls for several skin care posts on getting rid of skin tan because I know ya’ll don’t want to be walking around looking like baked potatoes. I tried a Basic 2-Ingredient Oatmeal Scrub once and I wasn’t so happy with the results. This time, I was hoping this oatmeal scrub for skin tan would deliver in the way I hoped. If you’ve been having skin tan problems, check out this simple solution.
You will need;
-1 tbsp. oats
-1 tbsp. honey
-2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Mix all the ingredients together. Wash your face with warm water and then gently apply the scrub on your face and any affected area. This is best done in the bathroom or before a bath. It can serve as a body scrub as well.
I used slow strokes during application because this is a very intense exfoliant. This oatmeal scrub for skin tan exceeded my expectations. It left my skin soft to touch and left it looking younger and like it got a lift. The change is highly visible.
Beauty Benefits Of Ingredients Used
Oats remove dead skin cells. Oatmeal is filled with natural cleansers which leave your skin oil and dirt free. It’s also rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds and is known for its skin soothing properties including adding moisture to dry skin, providing relief from itching, rashes and other skin conditions.
Honey is a natural antioxidant which helps reduce signs of premature aging. It’s a skin healer and a great moisturizer. Its antibacterial properties help to soothe and clarify skin.
Olive oil softens as well as moisturizes skin. It’s great for healing any sunburns and will also replenish lost moisture.
Oatmeal Scrub For Skin Tan Tips
-Be gentle to apply. I didn’t add any water to my oats to soften them in this recipe. I wanted an intense exfoliant and this is what honey, olive oil and oats gave me. If you want a light exfoliant, you may consider adding water to your oats before adding the other ingredients. Let them soak for a while then mix.
-Intense exfoliants should be used only once a week.
-This homemade scrub is very messy and needs a lot of patience.
I thoroughly enjoyed the results of this oatmeal scrub. Together with my Turmeric Facemask For Skin Tan, I am confident my skin is battling January weather quite fine. Leave a comment below and let me know how you are dealing with January tan!
