For the next for four weeks, I’m participating in Johnson’s Blog for Beauty Challenge. They have a variety of products with intense moisturizing properties that keep skin feeling smooth and baby soft. I figured that if we trust children’s skin with Johnson’s, why not use it on myself? So that’s what I’m doing. Each week I’m blogging about a different product and sharing how I’m using it and what it is doing for my skin.
Today’s Johnson’s product is the original, the classic Johnson’s Baby Powder. We all know by now that sprinkling a little bit of baby powder in your hair is a great way to get rid excess oil in your hair. In fact, I did this hours before seeing Katy Perry live in concert last week and meeting her at a “Meet & Greet” hours later. This use is actually one of the first things I wrote about when I started Product Girl almost 6 years ago.
Here are a few more uses you might find helpful:
- If you’re like me and do some of your own waxing at home, dust a little bit of baby powder over the areas you are about to wax. This helps absorb any oil on the surface of the skin and gives wax the ability to grab onto hair better. It’s a trick I picked up from my fabulous brow lady Jayla.
- Just like it does for hair, if you spill a little bit of grease or oil on your clothes while cooking or eating, put some baby powder on it to absorb the oil before tossing it in the hamper.
- On a hot night, sprinkle some baby powder on your sheets before slipping into bed. This will help soak up the perspiration on the skin and fabric.
- If you’ve been at the beach and want to get rid of all that wet sand you’re tracking to your car, baby powder can help! Sprinkle it on to absorb the water and the sand practically falls off by itself.
- Finally, if you shave with a dry electric razor, dust some baby powder on your legs. It helps with preventing friction burns so you have much prettier legs.
