Due to its very rich nutritional constituents, Oatmeal makes a very soothing and effective combatant against skin ailments. Skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis, or even just run-of-the-mill dry skin, can be cured by a number of home remedies, one of which is oatmeal. It might sound bizarre to bathe in something you would normally eat eat but oats are very efficient for curing skin ailments and is even recommended by National Eczema Association.
“Oatmeal, when soaked in warm water, creates a slimy film that coats the skin to protect it and trap in moisture.” — Patel

How to Bathe with Oatmeal

Water is the most common and very effective way of putting moisture back on the skin, but it’ll only be very effective if you use lukewarm water instead of cold water. To effectively combat skin ailments with oatmeal:
  • Grind Oatmeal
  • Pour into lukewarm bath water
  • Bathe with it for 10 to 15 minutes (avoid scrubbing your skin with sponge or a washcloth)
  • When you set out of the shower, pat your skin dry.
