“Oats are a nat­u­ral an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory and are used top­i­cally, to soothe and heal ir­ri­tated skin,” says as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor Greg Good­man from the Der­mal In­sti­tute of Vic­to­ria. “They make an ex­cel­lent ex­fo­liant and can be added to baths.” Oats as an in­gre­di­ent in skin­care prod­ucts work on the same prin­ci­ple.

1. Dab Vase­line around cu­ti­cles be­fore ap­ply­ing pol­ish to avoid any stain­ing.

2. Work a teeny bit into dry spots be­fore ap­ply­ing bronzer to nix blotches.

3. Swipe on the hair­line be­fore home hair colour­ing to avoid stain­ing skin.

4. Try it as a killer cheek il­lu­mi­na­tor.

5. Use it as an eye­brow gel to hold any naughty strays in place.

“Be­fore ap­ply­ing eye­liner, heat the tip with a hairdryer for a few sec­onds,” rec­om­mends Vic­to­ria Cur­tis, founder of Cur­tis Col­lec­tion Cos­met­ics. “That way, the colour won’t budge!”
