Oatmeal Remedy

34 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. I had been using bp for a month when my face suddenly starting getting very red and agitated. So i stopped but that was a while ago now, about 3 month, and my skin still looks rash like in places. Then i stumbled upon this youtube video

Now her skin used to be alot worse than mine, so i tried it about half an hour ago and my skin feels silky smooth, and the red patches on my face feel less agitated however it is too early to say weather it is actually working yet. Has anyone else had success with this before. I will keep my progress posted on here

Ok, i know this may seem early to say, but my skin feels so much better. Not only does it help sooth and soften the she skin, it also helps take away dead bits of skin since it acts like an exfoliater, exept without all those harsh chemicals and scratchy bead things

My spots have died down alot since before, i only get the odd one or two, so its only really the redness anyway. Do you use it morning and night

I've been doing this for a few months now and the results are amazing! I like to use this with some tea tree oil. Its so cheap so if you don't like it then its not that much of a waste.

Wow, its been two weeks now and my skin has never looked better honestly. My skin looks so much more even and softer, i highly recomend this. I only use it at night because it can be a bit of a pain doing it in the mornig bfore school. Still, redness still not totally gone away, to the left of the nose is still a bit red. I will keep my progress posted

Great that it helped you! I saw this video some time ago also but I still haven't tried it because I didn't believe it. I will some day because I really hate the redness on my cheeks :(

But I'm testing something else right now so I will wait otherwise I won't know what my skin reacts to.

Good thread, I've been having an everyday struggle with a red complexion for about a year after using topical retinoids. I'm off them now and wanna start this oatmeal cleanser coupled with essential oils. Anyone have an thoughts on bio oil for redness? I also have hyperpigmentation acne marks, so I like bio oil for that purpose. Thanks!

Thinking of using this product

turns out i had several food allerges, bannana, dairy and some ingrediant in chinease food, and eat these, except dairy, alot. Before i used to drink this fruit smothie that had bannana in it 2 times a day, so that might have been the cause of these spots i have been having on my jawline area. ill keep posted

about five weeks later and the redness has more or less subsided, but i still get the odd breakout now and then, so ive started using apple cider vinegar as a cleanser since ive heard good things about it. Also since removing the allerges from my diet my jawline acne has faded now, so i would highly recommend getting a food intolerance test done

I have been following the woman in the YT video for ages and can assure you she's no dumb teenager! For a start she's 24 and suffered very badly from acne as a teenager. In her YT videos, Bubz has been really upfront about how she dealt with her skin problems and in amongst her wide range of video topics (!) are quite a few gems on skin care - like this one on using oatmeal. She believes in being very gentle to your skin and using natural products, so if you search her YT channel, you'll find lots of great skin tips for people with sensitive skin. wink.png
