With plant-based alternatives to milk becoming increasingly popular and oat milk remaining one of the top favorites, it got us thinking – does it really have beauty benefits? Not only is oat milk one of the best dairy-free drinks to choose as it has the lowest environmental impact, but it is also great for anyone with allergies as many milk alternatives contain nuts or soy.
Oat milk has a mild taste, doesn’t curdle when you add it to your coffee and is arguably just as good for your skin as it is for your latte!
Oats Are a Hydrating Superhero
For years, oats, oat milk, and colloidal oatmeal (a ground form) have been used in skin and body care products because of their multiple skin benefits. Colloidal oats are often used in moisturizers to hydrate and soothe skin, making it great for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis as well as common dry skin. Oat milk is also incredibly nourishing as it offers moisturizing properties and also works to eliminate dead skin cells and impurities for softer, smoother skin.
Use As A Moisturizing Body Wash
You can also use oat milk directly on your skin as a moisturizing body wash – believe it or not. Many women take it in the shower with them! It’s excellent for soothing your skin post-shaving, too – the benefits are endless. Want to combat acne? Mix some oat milk with raw honey to make a fresh, all-natural face mask. Your skin will be left feeling soft, and redness will be reduced.
So, not only is oat milk a great dairy-free alternative to milk that is beneficial for your diet, but it is also a multipurpose, moisturizing go-to for supple skin and welcoming it into your diet and skincare routine will bring you endless benefits!
