Oatmeal is Your Skin-Soothing Super Ingredient of the Season
by Eden Univer
In honor of National Oatmeal Day (yes, there really is such a thing), we're celebrating with some of the best beauty products that incorporate the storied skin softener. If your mom ever stuck you in a bath and filled it with the breakfast staple, you know just how soothing it can be, but now there are better-and less messy-ways to get the same results. Whether in the form of colloidal oatmeal (a super refined version that's often seen in bath soaks), or avena sativa (what's used as an active ingredient in many of the products you'll find on shelves), it's incredibly calming and can remedy even the scaliest skin. Take that, cold weather!
Try one of our top picks and feel the results for yourself.
