January is National Oatmeal Month, a month that is dedicated to recognizing the nutritional value in this yummy morning treat. Oatmeal contains a host of good-for-you ingredients but your skin can actually benefit from it as well! Celebrate by starting your day with Ultra Repair Cream from First Aid Beauty (available at Sephora.com). This rich, nourishing cream contains colloidal oatmeal which helps to protect skin from dryness and harsh winter weather, giving you touchably smooth skin all day.
Colloidal oatmeal is actually the only over-the-counter ingredient that the FDA has approved for use on eczema – Ultra Repair Cream was built around this directive, using natural lipid ceramides to further hydrate and improve the skin’s barrier function. With the additional help of shea butter and soothing eucalyptus oil, it provides immediate relief and visible improvement for dry, itchy, raw, scaly skin. Slather it on dry heels, cracked hands and elbows and even use it on your face to moisturize and protect the skin.
Ultra Repair Cream from First Aid Beauty is available at select Sephora stores and on Sephora.com.
