Secret Wonder Baby Products for Mom to use

“Sure, you can pretend that they’re for baby, but once you’ve indulged in that yummy-smelling lotion or super-mild shampoo, deep down you know who’s really going to enjoy using it. And, why shouldn’t you? The best baby lotions, oils, and powders work well on moms, too…Especially when some products that are intended for wee ones work better than what you’ve been paying a premium for in the “adult” aisles?”

Did you know that there is a much cheaper alternative to dry shampoo? If you are in a hurry and do not have time to wash your hair,or you just simply want more volume…Ladies, Use Baby Taclum Powder. It works when you use it on the roots of your hair, but make sure you shake it off properly after 1 minute [Especially if you have dark hair]. I use it when I want my hair to be voluminous. Probably I am not the only one using this method, but to make sure I searched a bit on the internet and, trust me…we are not few  :). The powder will absorb the excess oil and make the hair temporally look less greasy, however do not use talc instead of washing!

Also you can remove greasy stains from a carpet with a combination of talcum powder and patience. Just cover the affected area with talcum powder and wait at least 6 hours for the talcum to absorb the grease. Then vacuum the stain away. Baking soda, or cornstarch may be substituted for the talcum powder. If you have ketchup or bloodstains on fabrics, form a paste out of talcum powder and a bit of water and apply it to the spot.

The second secret ingredient I’m constantly taking from my baby’s beauty box is Vitamin D oil. Our pediatrician recommended 2 drops of Vitamin D oil for my daughter for her bones and joints. I also found out that VItamin D does miracles for my skin. To back up my theory:  “Vitamin D is a key ingredient for beautiful looking skin,” says Dennis Gross, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City and creator of his namesake skincare line. “Skin, like all organs, needs vital vitamins to function properly—and vitamin D is one of them.”

I just purchased a little bottle of Vitamin D oil from the health food shop. I  apply it on my face and neck, combining it with my avocado extract oil (which is the best). Avocado oil is full of collagen which we all know is good for the skin’s  elasticity. It is rich in antioxidants, making it useful for healing sun-damaged skin. Antioxidants like vitamins A, D and E in avocado cause the skin to be suppler, and are thus particularly good for dry or aged skin. I am seriously thinking of using it every day this summer so I can proctect my skin from the harsh sun rays.ulei_avocado_50_ml_adams_vision


Fianlly, and I know I am not the only one…I use baby cleaning wet wipes (Pampers Sensitive) for everything. Makeup removal, spot cleaning the spit up on my pants,cleaning the counter, wiping off scuffs on my shoes and of course wipping off the dust.

I know I’m not alone in using kids products for myself
