When my sister had her first baby, she received a lot of gifts from friends and relatives and almost all of them were baby care packs. As a result, there were so many bottles of baby oils, creams, shampoos etc. sitting in her house that too without any use. My sister called me and asked for the alternative ways by which she can save those products to expire without even opening the packaging. I did my research and found there is a magical product which apart from being useful to the baby is equally good for us adults too. The product I am talking about is Baby Oil. When we hear the word "baby oil" the first thing that comes to our mind is that it is for massaging newborn babies, but little did we know it's an amazing beauty product and could be included in our daily beauty regimen. I am sharing a few uses of baby oil which I found helpful in my daily routine and has benefitted in me in no of ways.

1. Makeup Remover

Remember the pain we go through every night when we have to remove our day makeup and especially the waterproof kajal and mascara. I always end up getting panda eyes and my brother leaves no chance to make fun of me. There are so many makeup removers available in the market but they kind of sting my eye or are very costly. Now I have a solution to this problem. Just take 2-3 drops of baby oil on a cotton pad and use it as a makeup remover. Let it rest for 5 minutes before removing your makeup and believe me it works like a charm. Also the fact that it is made for babies does not irritate my skin and doesn't sting my eyes also.

2. Hair Serum

Sometimes shampoo and conditioner alone are not enough to tame those dry hair ends. Dry ends take away the charm of our hair. Baby oil comes handy on those days. Just take 3-4 drops of baby oil in your palm and rub your palms together so that it gets distributed in your palms evenly. Now run your palms through the ends of your hair. It will not only add shine to them but also reduces the appearance of split ends. Baby oil works as a great substitute to leave-in serums but one has to use it in small amount only as it can make our hair sticky when used in large amounts. For the same reason, avoid using it on roots too.

3. Moisturizer

During winters, our skin tends to get extremely dry, flaky and develops white patches. Even a good quality moisturizer is sometimes not enough to moisturize your skin. Baby oil does that work for you. Take few drops of baby oil with few drops of water in your hand and use it as a regular body moisturizer after the shower. After using it over a period of time, my skin became more soft, smooth and hydrated. So next time your body requires a nice dose of moisture give it some baby oil and see the magic.

4. Lip Balm

When our lips became chapped and dry it's very painful. So next time when you face a similar situation, apply a thick layer of baby oil over your lips at night. Next morning you will find soft smooth lips and they will also get healed with regular usage. Baby oil is excellent for softening chapped and cracked lips.

5. Shaving Gel

It is always advisable to shave your legs after applying shaving gel or conditioner. This helps razor to glide smoothly over your skin and prevents cuts. Baby oil also does the same. Use a little bit of baby oil on your arms or legs wherever you want to shave before shaving them off. It makes the whole shaving lot smoother and convenient.

6. Heel Repair

Cracked heels are a common problem in women, especially in women over 35. Cracked heels can be easily the treated with the use of baby oil. Massage baby oil over cracked heels at night and make sure to wear socks after that, it will help in faster repair.

7. Massage Oil

We can use baby oil as our regular massage oil for our hair or body. It works equally well as coconut or any other oil. We can massage our hair and leave it overnight to get frizz-free hair or we can use it to massage our body to de-stress.

Now we know that baby oil has so many amazing benefits for adults also and is not reserved for babies only. So what are waiting for? Grab your bottle of baby oil that must be lying somewhere in your cupboard without any use and let it work its magic.
