When we’re seeking #zerowaste, what could be better than a cleanser that’s so simple you can blend it in the palm of your hand.
And there are benefits beyond no packaging …
Fresh is simple
Making your skincare as you need it means you can focus on the fresh ingredients. No need to supplement with preservatives if you’re using it right away.
Which makes for a much simpler product. This cleanser is super-effective despite having just two ingredients.
2 simple ingredients
1 tsp (5g) oats
1 tsp (5g) dried milk
Make it easy
Combine the ingredients in the palm of your hand and mix with water to form a paste.
If you want to, add a few drops of a good cleansing oil like olive, almond or thistle oil.
Rub this over your face and neck and then rinse with warm water.
Why is it so good
Know your oats
Oats are fantastic to use in skincare with many hidden benefits. As well as providing exfoliation, they contain avenanthramides which are both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. The benefit of this is that they help fight the signs of ageing and can be soothing too.
Skin benefits of milk
In a cleanser, milk can help draw out sebum and tighten large pores. It’s a good aid therefore in preventing blackheads and acne.
