Who would have ever thought that putting food on your skin would be beneficial way back in the day. I remember when it was just cucumbers on the eyes to help with puffiness and hydration, a nice way to soothe tired eyes.
Now we are finding that there are so many more benefits to feeding our skin these amazing foods. I mean who would every think of oatmeal being good for the skin? It's delicious in the morning for breakfast. It's such a hearty and nutritious way to start the day, but on the skin....it just sounds a little funny right.
Then as the years went on we started to see it pop up as main ingredients to help soothe the skin and treat some skin problems.
What we now know is that feeding the skin is so good and beneficial. Oatmeal alone is very rich in anti-oxidants and helps to reverse damage to the skin by pollution, chemicals and our dreaded UV rays. We started to notice that it helps reduce itching and inflammation of the skin, it can calm eczema and heal psoriasis. It is soothing when you have a sunburn with all it's healing, moisturizing and anti-oxidant properties.
It's a wonderful cleanser and does not strip the skin, it won't clog your pores. It's unique in that it not only helps soak up excess oil in the skin and helps treat acne but the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties helps to treat dry skin and remove dead skin cells gently.
Nosh Body Oatmeal Breakfast Foam is something your skin can enjoy anytime of day. It's so soft and luxurious that it is gentle for the whole body even the face. It can be used to shave and you do not need a lot of product to make it work. It cuts down on clutter in the bathroom which I absolutely love! I don't enjoy having a lot of bottles in my shower so this simplifies things for me. I always think about how much waste I'm saving and how I am doing the earth a little good by not having to use so many products. Plus, they are beautiful amble plastic bottles that are recycled!
Next time you're eating your next meal, think about if it's good for you and if it is good for the outside, it may be great for the outside as well!
Food for thought.
