My Number One Secret to Clear Skin? ....

Hey guys!

So with it being winter and all, my skin definitely seems to be getting worse. However, I have one saviour, and it's one that I would never have guessed myself until I tried it out... Porridge Oats! 

I'm sure you've all heard of using oats for skincare before and probably tried it, but this natural cleanser is the best one ever! I never usually expect all these natural skincare methods to actually work, and most of the time, they really don't - they often get used because they have ingredients in which are known to be healthy for skin, and are put into normal skincare products, but there's not enough of these ingredients in them to make a difference! Oats are different. 

After I used this as a cleanser the first time, I noticed results straight away! The main change in my skin was redness; about 80% of the redness around my T-Zone had vanished after one use of this! I can't believe how well this has worked. Also, I don't think I can remember my skin ever being this soft before... it's soft to touch and looks smooth! My method is...

-Take a small handful of oats and clench it in my fist.
-Run my hand with the porridge in under lukewarm water until it gets it kind of... sticky. 
-I just rub this all over my face like a usual cleanser!
-Rinse and dry it like normal.
-Witness the heavenly skin. 

I really hope you guys try this out - it's definitely worth it! Have you ever tried this, or any other kind of natural skincare? I'm interested to know what's worked for you! Thanks for reading! xoxo
