How are you nourishing yourself during the colder months? I truly believe that the secret to healthy glowing skin is not just what you put on it, but what you put inside your body, how you move and how you breathe. Along with a heathy balanced diet, plenty of hydration from water and fruit it is also important that we take a look at the ingredients we expose our skin to. During the winter, our skin needs an extra bit of care. Try this simple winter face routine for a little extra glow.

For this natural and gentle face cleanser, we are using ground oats/ oat flour.

Oats aren’t just great for porridge, they make a wonderful cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils.

Place a cup of oats in a blender and make into a powder (or buy oat flour if you wish).

Splash and soak your face with warm water to soften the skin.

In the palm of your hand add a spoon of the oat flour and mix with warm water to make a paste.

Gently press into your face and slowly massage in.

Rinse off with warm water and leave the face damp. (you can also spritz with some rose water here if you have that on hand)

With the tip of your fingers massage in some almond, sesame or olive oil. (apply on damp skin for better absorption).

Take 2 deep breaths, send yourself some love, have a great day!
