Oatmeal’s anti-inflammatory properties are excellent for soothing irritation and itching caused by eczema. As it reduces inflammation and absorbs excess oil, it is also good for acne breakouts.
Interestingly, the saponins in oatmeal allow it to work as a natural cleanser and remove dirt and dead skin from your pores. It has a sunburn-fighting effect as well.
Honey and yogurt will also soothe your skin. Both contain nutrients that help maintain soft and smooth skin. Honey, being a natural humectant and anti-inflammatory, helps retain moisture in the skin and reduces inflammation. Plus, it has antimicrobial properties that help fight bacteria and prevent infection.
Yogurt contains lactic acid that works as a mild exfoliant to remove rough, dead skin. Also, its bleaching properties help clear blemishes and dark spots from the skin.
