our grandmothers trusted the power of oatmeal for their hands. You can try it out too. Oatmeal acts as a gentle exfoliant – it helps to gently remove dead skin. At the same time, they will also cleanse the skin.
The skin of your hands should also become elastic and the remaining layers of the epidermis should be regenerated. This is due to the externally applied B vitamins, mucous substances and minerals: sulfur, phosphorus, calcium and silicon.
Mild chamomile has a disinfecting and soothing effect, so it will support the oats in their action.
