Babies have a very delicate skin which is extremely prone to dryness, itchiness, rashes etc. This is the main reason that there are special products made for babies which have no chemicals, fragrances and dyes. These products are mild on the skin and keep the skin soft and supple. The products made for babies are made with utmost care, and this is the reason why many of them are good for adults to use in various ways. Some products can be used in the same way whereas there are some which can be put to different uses. Let us have a look at some of these:
For bad diaper rashes, it is often recommended that we use a diaper rash cream which has a high level of zinc oxide. These creams are a great option to treat irritated skin. Creams like Desitin are one of the best diaper rash creams available and they give immediate relief without any side effects as they do not have parabens and harsh ingredients. So next time, there is a minor cut, burn or scrapes, you can try using your baby’s diaper rash cream. (Read our post, Best Diaper Rash Creams in India)
The best baby shampoos are dermatologically tested, free from harsh ingredients and are paraben free. For all those who have sensitive skin, baby shampoos are the best choice as these are delicate for the skin. Baby shampoos can be used to clean mascaras and eye make up as these do not hurt the eye. Also, a good baby shampoo is a perfect choice to clean make up brushes and combs and hair brushes. A baby shampoo can also be used to wash delicate fabrics without spoiling their colours. They can be added to the laundry and can be washed in cold water to keep the clothes intact.
This is one product I often use. Baby wipes are the safest way to clean make up. The make up removers available in the market usually have a high level of alcohol which leaves the skin irritated. The baby wipes are gentle and they leave the skin feeling cool and fresh. These wipes do not have any chemical and can be used to clean phone screens and laptops too. Try the Mother Sparsh Baby Wipes next time when you want to remove the make up easily. (Read our post, Best Baby Wipes and How to Choose Them)

SPF is not age related and thus, the sun screen you buy for tour baby is something you can also use when going out in the sun. Sunscreen for babies have a good SPF and at the same time do not have harsh chemicals which can harm the skin.
Baby oil is a good moisturizing oil and can be used after a bath to moisturize the skin. A good baby oil is also a great way to remove water proof eye makeup. Oil can help clean the mascara which will not happen when you use soap and water. All that is needed is to use a piece of cotton and apply to the eyes. Rinsing after this, will remove all make up in a jiffy. Baby oil can also be used to polish your steel utensils and keep them shining. Another thing which can be polished using a baby oil is wood. The glass and cup marks can be easily cleaned with a cloth dipped in baby oil, leaving the table shining. (Read our post, Best Oils for Baby Massage in India)
