Uses of Baby Oil

Better late than never, Delhi winters are getting there, a bit late though. I have dry skin and so during winters, I keep hydrating my skin with different moisturisers and oils. One thing I keep beside me all the time is a small bottle of baby oil. Most of the baby oil smells great and are almost non-sticky that you don’t need to wash your hands after applying them. Below are few uses of baby oil, a true multi-purpose oil

  • Moisturiser: Even though I stock tonnes of moisturising lotions and creams I love to use baby oil as moisturiser. After the shower, I apply them on my body after applying my daily moisturising cream. This keeps my body hydrated throughout the day.
  • Hand and Foot cream: No matter how many hand cream I have I apply few drops of baby oil on my hands and foot after shower and also before I go to bed. They really keep your hands and foot soft and moisturised.
  • Make-up Remover: I’m not into heavy make-up, still during special occasions I apply make-up. The reason behind which I don’t apply makeup is that I’m too lazy to remove it once I’m back.( I know it’s the lamest excuse:P ) Whenever I apply light make-up baby oil comes handy as a make-up remover and its hustle free too. For removing waterproof make-up coconut oil is the best, but again its sticky 😐
  • Eye cream: As baby oil is meant for the delicate baby skin you can use them as under eye cream too. Apply a few drops of baby oil around your eyes and give a soft massage of few minutes before you got to bed. This will give you a deep and relaxed sleep.
  • Apply a few drops of baby oil on your hands and legs after shave/waxing, it acts a natural moisturiser and will prevent the waxed area getting dry or itchy. Men can use baby oil as after shave oil and can skip your after shave lotion.
  • As hair Conditioner: During those days when your hair acts dry and frizzy dab a few drops of baby oil on your palm and rub with both hands and apply it lightly on your hair (Be careful not to apply too much of oil-  2 or 3 drops will do )
  • My mum has a very sensitive skin and most of the moisturising creams doesn’t suit her skin. I had told her about baby oil and now she uses only baby oil as a moisturiser and she’s very happy with it. So sensitive skin beauties can use baby oil without any doubts.

    I like using it as a moisturizer and makeup remover.
    I also sometimes add granulated sugar to this to make a body scrub. Add a few drops of essential oil and you are good to go for a nice home spa experience.
