There are so many beauty and skin care products that we have today that sometimes we don’t really get to use their full potential. We are always quick to throw away old skin care products in favor of new ones even though we haven’t finished with them completely. Just imagine the amount of waste that we do! With that being said, one particular product at home that we barely use is baby oil gel which shouldn’t be limited to babies only. You might be surprised to find that there are several beauty hacks that you can do with it. Here are a few that you should take note of.
Good for the eyes
The skin around the eyes are usually thinner compared to the rest of our skin hence it is prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Using eye creams is all well and good as it keeps the skin moist and plump too to help lessen the signs of aging that tend to appear here. But did you know that dabbing some baby oil gel around the eyes can help lock the moisture in? Another benefit to this is that it helps reduce the puffiness around the eyes.
If you often have bad hair days, you’ll probably love to have a baby oil gel with you. You see, this gel is actually a good solution for days when your hair is not really cooperative. To use this on your hair, get a small amount of the gel in your hands and apply mostly on areas that have frizz. Comb your hair normally and you will see that your frizzy hair will become tame. You can make your hair look sleek with it too by adding a small amount on the top of your head and comb your hair into a pony tail. You’ll find that your hair looks stylish as there are no stray hairs popping out of your mane.
Are your chapped lips making you look dehydrated? Well, dabbing some baby oil gel on it can help lock in the moisture on your lips and that extra shine to it will make it appear that you are wearing chapsticks. You can use this when the weather is starting to dry up leaving your lips well moisturized.
Use in place of shaving cream
We often want our bodies to be smooth and hairless especially on the legs but if your shaving cream is not giving you the desired results, apply some baby oil gel on your legs before shaving. This helps soften the hair so that your razor will glide smoothly on it. Start by washing your legs first then patting it dry. Apply a thin layer of the gel on your legs then start shaving. You can always a bit more if you feel that there is a dry patch here and there. Your legs will look smooth and stubble free too.
Wearing makeup is part and parcel of our day-to-day routine but at the end of the day, you still need to remove them. It’s true that there are plenty of makeup removers out there that can help you remove your eyeshadows, rogue, lipstick, and what not, but why pay a high price for one when baby oil gel works just fine? Not only does it remove your makeup, but it will also make your skin feel smooth, soft, and radiant too.
Baby oil gel does have a lot to offer than just keeping your baby clean and fresh all the time. You can even use it for your personal routine so you won’t get to spend a lot on beauty products any more.
