When it comes to taking care of your appearance, it is not necessary to spend a fortune on overpriced cosmetics; you just need to know some practical tips and choosing products with multiple uses. Baby oil, for example, could replace many of your beauty care products.
To remove earwax
One of the best known and the most amazing uses of baby oil is to remove the wax caps. If you feel that your ear is blocked because of a buildup of earwax, simply pour a few drops of this oil in your ear and keep the head tilted for several minutes. The cap will soften, which will facilitate the removal of ear wax naturally.
For shinier hair
To give your hair softness and shine while moisturizing it, use walnut baby oil, rub it between your hands and then apply it on your hair. In addition to making it shiny and eliminate the frizz, baby oil will gently perfume your hair. However, do not apply it on the roots or put too much so as not to weigh down your hair and make it too greasy.
To illuminate your cheekbones
After finishing your makeup, you can use baby oil as illuminator, or highlighter. Just put a drop on your finger and apply on the light areas such as cheekbones, bridge of the nose or the bow of Cupid (middle of the upper lip). If you have oily skin, avoid using this trick, because the oil can clog your pores and promote pimples and blackheads.
As massage oil
To relax your tense muscles and enjoy a good time relaxing, use baby oil instead of your regular massage oil. Its delicate fragrance and moisturizing texture will help you relax while taking care of your skin.
You can also use it as a slimming massage. Apply in the areas affected by cellulite, and then perform an energetic massage to dislodge these layers of fat and thus promote their elimination.
For a less irritating shave
Shaving is one of the most used methods of hair removal. To protect your skin and avoid injury, apply baby oil on your legs or underarms, then do your regular shaving. In addition to soften the hair and facilitate its removal, this oil prevents the formation of ingrown hairs. You can also use it as aftershave that will help soothe the itching and irritation and reduce redness caused by this aggressive practice.
For cleansing your eyes from makeup
The removal is one of the most important steps to keep the skin healthy and free of imperfections. But sometimes makeup products, especially if they are water resistant, can be stubborn and difficult to remove. To remove makeup effectively without irritating the eyes, apply a few drops of baby oil on a cotton pad and wipe it gently on your eyelids.
To soften the rough skin
The skin around the joints is continuously dry favoring the appearance of calluses. To have a soft and smooth skin, make a natural scrub to remove dead cells and then apply baby oil to moisturize and soften your skin. You can also use this oil to remove residues of glue or wax on your skin. Simply pour a few drops on a cotton ball and rub the affected skin area.
