It's fitting that National Oatmeal Day is celebrated in October, when your skin needs all of this grain's many skin benefits. That's right, the same oatmeal you mix with milk for breakfast has a laundry list of skin care uses, too. The most obvious treatment would be as an exfoliant, but this grain can also be used to moisturize and heal even the most sensitive skin. It's actually a popular ingredient in eczema creams and acne treatments for its anti-inflammatory characteristics, so the next time your skin erupts in seasonal flakes or dry patches, pour yourself an oatmeal bath or whip up a DIY scrub remedy. In the meantime, check out these beauty products that list oatmeal among their active ingredients.
