Frequently Asked Questions About the Sensitive Oatmeal Facial:

1. Can I use oatmeal on my face?

Yes, you can use oatmeal on your face. Oatmeal is a natural ingredient and does not contain any chemically processed or synthetic elements. It is soothing, calming, and can be used on infant skin.

2. Can oatmeal clog pores?

No, oatmeal does not clog pores. Oatmeal contains compounds called saponins, which act as natural cleansers and eliminate the dirt and oil that clog pores.

3. Is putting oatmeal products on your face good?

Yes! Oatmeal-based skincare products can decrease irritation, increase hydration, and nourish dry skin. Countless studies show that these products restore skin hydration levels of skin and reduce the symptoms of eczema and other skin conditions, such as itching and flaking.

4. Can I put a raw oatmeal mask on my face?

While it’s safe to put a raw oatmeal mask on your face, you will not experience the same benefits of a clinically formulated oatmeal mask. The most beneficial oatmeal masks utilize pure, pharmaceutical grade, colloidal, and water-soluble oatmeal, combined with other soothing humectants.
