Colloidal oatmeal is believed to be a super beneficial addition to a skincare regimen - made from finely ground oatmeal which is dissolved in water. Colloidal oatmeal is often found in calming face and body washes, bath soaks lotions, and creams. Irritated, red, itchy skin can feel soothed by a nice warm bath infused with colloidal oatmeal. Colloidal oatmeal has been suggested by many to provide some relief for people suffering from dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, skin allergies, dry winter skin, sunburns, or itching related to insect bites or poison ivy. Colloidal oatmeal offers anti-inflammatory properties, that are believed to help balance the skin’s pH levels, providing much-needed relief from many irritating skin conditions.

Colloidal oatmeal even contains saponins, a type of compound that makes it good for cleansing as it creates its own foamy lather. It has been suggested that colloidal oatmeal creates a layer of protection on top of your skin in order to protect it from outside irritants and locks in your body’s natural production of healing oils. Many stories suggest that your skin may possibly be better able to hydrate itself and repair its natural barrier when it is given a little bit of help, and colloidal oatmeal is thought to allow your skin the opportunity to fulfill its purpose - to protect you from outside irritants and lock in moisture. Properly moisturized skin is well prepared to combat the effects of aging and give an appearance of a beautiful, glowy look. Most people can use colloidal oatmeal with almost no side effects. However, if you have sensitive skin or a gluten allergy, it is always good to do a small patch test on your skin with any new products and wait a few days for any signs of symptoms to develop.
