Oatmeal has natural saponins, which means it will help impurities slip off your skin. I have very dry skin, and oatmeal cleans my face without stripping it. This recipe is just oatmeal and water. When my face is especially dry, in the winter, I add a little honey to the mixture. When I want a deep clean, about twice a month, I add green clay and honey to the mixture. Sometimes I put a cup of combined oats, dried lavender, calendula and chamomile in a blender to create a powder. I store it in a jar and use that as face wash or put it in the bath.
