5 Baby Product Beauty Hacks
Beauty Blogger, Delara Lalwani, never imagined she'd be using be using baby products for herself until she became a mommy! If you have some leftover baby products lying around the house, you might still have use for them! Here are some of her favourite baby products which she realised are great for completely different uses, or work brilliantly for adults, too.
Nipple cream for chapped lips
Nipple cream is usually made of lanolin, which is edible and safe to use around your mouth. That being said, it won't taste as nice as a regular lip balm which is usually flavoured. However, it does a great job at protecting and moisturising dry lips. Apparently, even Margot Robbie swears by this beauty hack! Delara recommends Lansinoh's Nipple Cream which is made of pure lanolin.
"Nipple cream that prevents sore, cracked nipples works brilliantly on sore, cracked lips too."
Diaper rash cream for razor or waxing burns and acne
Diaper rash cream contains zinc oxide which soothes irritated skin, especially skin irritated by razor burns or from waxing treatment. It also works wonders as a spot treatment for a pimple, but don't go overboard as it can also clog pores.
Desitin Diaper Rash Cream is my go-to product. It’s brimming with pure zinc oxide and it literally soothes my skin and relieves any discomfort within minutes of applying it. Love love."
Baby wipes for cleaning everything
Delara always carries around a pack of Pigeon Wet Wipes in her bag, not just for her kids, but for everyday messes too!
"I use this for everything.
Ate a sandwich? Wipe dirty hands.
Feeling lazy to wash my face? Wipe face."
Baby sunscreen for sensitive skin
Prone to breakouts? Have sensitive skin? You can totally use baby sunscreen on your skin too for some strong but gentle protection from the sun. Delara swears by Shiseido's Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion WetForce for Sensitive Skin and Children.
"Chemical sunscreens are way too harsh if your skin is sensitive or breaks out often. A physical sunscreen is what you need."
Baby essential oils for unwinding after a stressful day
What can calm down a cranky baby can also do wonders for you! Rub the essential oil along the soles of your feet, or add a few drops to your pillow case before you sleep for the aroma.
"Stuff I ♥: Young Living Gentle Baby smells divine and instantly calms me down. One whiff and I can exactly feel my stiff shoulders starting to loosen up. I even travel with it. It really helps on long haul flights or stressful business trips."
