Exfoliating to remove dead skin cells and build-up is essential for Glowing skin.
Ground oatmeal works well for gentle exfoliation and contains oat beta glucan that forms a film on skin that retains moisture. Oat beta glucan and honey have anti-inflammatory properties to soothe angry skin. Honey is anti-bacterial to aide in acne recovery.
