Oatmeal

Oats are effective in fighting dull, flaky dryness as they contain polysaccharides, which become gelatinous in water. They form a fine protective film when applied on skin. It acts as a natural moisturizer by removing the dead skin cells. It contains beta-glucan that forms a fine film on your skin as well as penetrates deep into the skin to provide much needed deep moisturizing to your skin. Oatmeal enhances wound healing and shallow abrasions and improves collagen deposition and activation of immune cells within the skin.

Cornmeal

Yellow corn is a rich source of beta-carotene which forms vitamin A that is vital for the maintenance of healthy skin. Vitamin C and lycopene are potential antioxidants that prevent the UV generated free radicals from damaging the skin and increase the production of collagen that assists in the maintenance of smooth skin. Besides being eaten, corn can also be applied topically as corn oil which is a rich source of linoleic acid.

Kaolin Clay

Kaolin clay is recommended for oily and normal skin. It is an excellent skin care treatment as it helps control sebum production, the major contributor to oily skin. The clay helps in regenerating and mineralizing of the dry areas, leaving your skin smooth and glowing. Kaolin clay contains a compound known as montmorillonite that helps to remove toxins and oils from your skin. It is also rich in phyto-nutrients and essential minerals and is commonly used for therapeutic purposes.

I will try this because ever since I developed my hypothyroidism, my skin has become dry. I think I need to put down an old towel if I'm going to scrub my whole body with this.

Yes Amanda! I know it's so hard to take time for yourself, but this one is worth it AND will only take a few minutes. I love how soft my face is after I use this scrub. I need to remember to put a scoop in the jar, though!
