This DIY Oatmeal Soap is Great for Addressing Irritated, Red, Dry Skin

If you have been experimenting with making your own cleanser at home, this DIY project for oatmeal soap is certainly worth a try.

From Julia at the Free People blog, the homemade soap uses a shea butter glycerin soap base instead of lye, which will be especially nourishing to the skin. Oatmeal, on the other hand, is known to have a soothing effect, making it ideal for those suffering from irritated and dry skin this winter. The oats also act as a natural exfoliant.

In addition to the glycerin soap base, the DIY oatmeal soap calls for organic rolled oats, raw honey and almond oil. You will also need a soap mold or pan (available at craft stores like Michael's).
