If you have overly sensitive skin and are looking for a cleanser that will get the job done without breaking you out and creating huge red splotches on your face, then you will want to make this amazing DIY Oatmeal Facial Cleanser.

If you think about it, when a child has chicken pox you give him/her an oatmeal bath. So if your facial skin is irritated, why not do the same for it. Oatmeal, which is highly affordable and accessible, is able to help relieve sensitivity and redness, while also providing a very gentle and mild exfoliation. It’s also very skin balancing, it leaves the skin feeling cleansed yet moisturized.

All you need to get started is oatmeal and milk.
