I want to tell you a secret. Baby oil isn’t just for babies.
My youngest is in 2nd grade this year. That means that I haven’t had a baby in a while. But I still keep Johnson’s® Baby Oil on hand because I have discovered a multitude of ways to use it just for myself!
First I need to tell you another secret, I struggle with dry skin. Dry lips, feet, and nails are where I notice it the most. Even living in a humid area I still struggle with dry skin, and it gets worse in the winter.
But I’ve got a couple baby oil hacks that keep my skin soft year round. The first is a DIY Lip Scrub.
For my lip scrub I use sugar and baby oil. You’ll want to combine 2 parts sugar to 1 part baby oil. You can find the Johnson’s® Baby Oil in the baby section at Walmart. Mine was on the same aisle as the diapers.
I like to use small jars, like baby food sized jars, to hold my lip scrub. For this size jar I use 1/4 cup sugar and 1/8 cup baby oil. Add half of the baby oil to the sugar and stir to combine. Then add the other half of the baby oil.
Once the baby oil and sugar are combined spoon it into the jar. I keep mine by the sink in my bathroom. Use your finger to scoop out a small amount and rub it over your lips. Then use a warm washcloth to wipe the scrub off. Finish by applying some lip balm. The scrub keeps my lips smooth and improves the look of my lipstick.
Keeping my feet soft is even easier. Before bed I rub baby oil on to my feet and then slip on some socks. Wear the socks to bed and wake up with softer feet!
A few of my other favorite year round uses for baby oil are as a makeup remover and necklace detangler.
Put a small amount of baby oil onto a cloth and easily wipe away your eye makeup.
Use a few drops on a tangled necklace to easier get the knots out.
