DIY cheap oat cleanser! x

 Hello everyone! Today I wanted to do a quick post on how to make a cleanser out of oats! This cleanser is really soothing and calming, as well as moisturises dry skin and gives you a brighter complexion. It leaves your skin super soft, and even better, all of the ingredients you will probably have in your cupboard! Also, I find if I leave it on for a bit longer it serves as a great face mask! 
What you will need...
About a handful of oats
A small bowl
Water
A spoon(or just use your fingers) ;)






 Firstly, get a handful of oats and out them in the bowl. As a prior warning, this can get a bit messy so make sure you tie your hair back and are in your pyjamas! :)
Next, add a small amount of water to the oats, and stir it up with your fingers or a spoon. This turns the mixture very sticky and oaty. It basically looks like porridge to be honest, so not the most appetising thing in the world but it has lots of amazing benefits to your skin. Make sure you don't add too much or too little water!
 Then take a handful of oats and squeeze out any excess liquid. I store this liquid in a small pot because it's oat free and very very moisturising and softening! You can even use it on your legs or ends of hair to give them some additional moisture
As you can see my hand got very messy ;)










 I then added a bit more water, to get it more runny.
Now you can start applying it to your skin! It feels really soft and calm on the skin as you massage it in. The oats also exfoliate the skin too. Also, I would have added an image but I felt too shy! :(



I then wash it off and pat dry, and finish with your usual moisturiser! So all in all, a cheap way to get great skin :)
Hope you liked it!

  4. I replied again, I said >>> I honestly did :) Oh I'm really sorry I was mistaken! I feel awful now but Im glad you can see where I'm coming from. I will :D I was going to buy some more of the lush one but I might try your version first :) thanks for being understanding. I guess it was just a rant not just to you but it lots of people who do that :) xxx also I really admire you doing this at age 13! Its amazing how much you have achieved at such a young age! Im 17 now and I started another beauty blog when I was 14 but soon gave up cause I thought I was rubbish and was worried what people would think of me! Well done :) Sorry again xxx
