The first recipe using a tablespoon of oatmeal powder, a single egg white, and a few drops of lemon oil. Lemon oil can be found in most natural or homeopathic stores or in the organic section of your grocery store. Make your own oatmeal powder by grinding some oatmeal that you have on hand. Be sure not to use the instant cook kind, though. Be sure to mix the ingredients together completely, especially important since you’re using egg in this mixture.

This next recipe is a great one to try if you have dry skin. Mix a mashed up ripe banana with a cup of oatmeal. Use some milk to thin this thick mixture into a creamy paste.

Your skin should feel really moist and good.
If your skin tends to be on the dry side try this next method. Use a tablespoon of dry oatmeal to massage your skin first.
