Oats are an effective moisturizer with anti-inflammatory properties, coconut sugar helps slough-off dead skin cells, while coconut oil adds moisture. For acne-prone skin, substitute the coconut oil with jojoba or any other oil that you know your skin loves!
Oatmeal Cookie Exfoliator
- 1 cup / 100g rolled oats
- 2 Tbsp. coconut sugar
- 1 Tbsp. coconut oil , olive oil for acne-prone skin
- Blend oats in a food processor until finely ground (it should look like flour). Add the coconut sugar and pulse to combine, then add the coconut oil and blend until uniform. Store in an airtight glass jar at room temperature for up to 1 month.
- Combine 1 Tbsp. Oatmeal Cookie Exfoliator with ½ Tbsp. water and mix thoroughly to combine (you can do this in your hand, but I prefer a little bowl or cup). Gently massage onto skin in circles, getting into all the spots that need a scrub. Continue for 2-3 minutes, then rinse with warm water, pat your skin dry, and follow up with your favourite serum and moisturizer! Enjoy the glow!
