There is nothing more relaxing, after a stressful day than a good soak in a hot bath. My husband loves doing this but just recently has been diagnosed with Psoriasis, so has been having showers instead.
I was so pleased to be asked to review Oat Soak – a bath time relief for itchy skin.
Oats are widely recognised as being 100% natural and an excellent product to soothe itchy skin. It can calm down inflammation and restore smoothness . They have been used for thousands of years as a soothing aide. Doctors still advise the use of oats to children and adults who suffer with itchy, inflamed, and very dry skin, especially eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, dermographism, shingles, heat/nettle rash and can help sunburn.
The reason that Oats are so good is that they contain up yo 20 times more silica than other plants. This helps to strengthen skin and gives smoothness back. They contain avena sativa which studies have shown reduce irritation and inflammation.
To say we were dubious about using this is an undertstatement. All I could think of was porridge. However, Skin Shop have found a way of turning these oats into something that is suitable for use in the bath. The product is made from pure colloidal oats, which are finer and can remain suspended in the water.
Once run, and the oats added, the bath looked really relaxing. My Husband reviewed these.
He said ‘It seemed weird getting into the water with oats in. However, once I had soaked and relaxed in the bath, on drying, my skin felt smooth and was not as itchy as it had been. I would definitely recommend to anyone to try who has itchy or sore skin.’
So from our point of view, this product is highly recommended.
If you would like to try this for yourself, Oak Soak is available from Skin Shop at a cost of £1,95 per sachet or £9.95 per 10. The link is here Oat Soak Sachets
