7 Baby Products You Can Use For Yourself

It turns out that baby products aren't just for babies! If a product is gentle enough to be used for a baby's skin, you can bet it'll also be suitable for adults.

Additionally, there are baby items apart from skin and hair care products that you can use for yourself. So, are you wondering which baby products are good for adults? We've got you covered.

Here are seven baby products you can use for yourself.

7 Baby Products That Adults Can Use As Well

Given below is a handy list of baby products that you can give a try. This list will particularly be useful if you have sensitive skin, enjoy living a sustainable lifestyle, prioritize repurposing and upcycling, prefer to not waste products, and are interested in how to use a single product in different ways.

Of course, remember to patch test products before use and discontinue their usage if you face an allergic reaction. This applies to both you and your baby!

Baby Shampoo and Body Wash

Baby shampoo is often gentler and less drying than adult shampoo, making it a great option for those with sensitive scalp or dry hair.

Organic and natural baby shampoos on the market are an even better option as they have no harsh chemicals that can damage your hair and scalp. Plus, considering how gentle baby shampoo is, you can use it to wash your hair every day — keeping the greasiness away without weakening the hair!

Additionally, you can clean your makeup brushes using just a little bit of baby shampoo!

Now, moving on to baby body wash. If regular soaps irritate and dry out your skin, it's a good idea to try out baby body washes as they tend to be more gentle, less drying, and deeply moisturizing.

Take a look at Nature's Baby Organics Shampoo & Body Wash (Lavender Chamomile) which is suitable for both babies and grownups.

Baby Lotion

Baby lotion can be used as a facial moisturizer or body lotion. It is often lighter and less fragrant than adult lotions, making it ideal for those with sensitive, dry skin.

Organic and fragrance-free baby lotions are the way to go, especially if you have sensitive, problem-prone skin. Of course, if you have existing skin problems, speak to your dermatologist before making the shift to baby skin and hair care products.

Also, if you want a baby skin care product with a thick consistency — for your chapped lips or dry elbows — try out a baby cream! A bonus point is that they usually don't have that sticky feeling that adult creams are known for.

Baby Oil

Baby oil can be used as a facial cleanser, makeup remover, or body oil for adult skin. It is light, non-greasy, and easily absorbed by the skin.

When using baby oil as a makeup remover, pour some onto a cotton pad and gently wipe away your makeup. You can also add a few drops of baby oil to your bathtub for a relaxing and moisturizing experience.

After massaging your own baby with baby oil, you can simply take a little bit extra and massage your arms and legs. Parent-baby bonding time will become even more special if the two of you are using the same product!

Of course, if you use natural oils (such as coconut oil) as baby massage oils, then it goes without saying that you can use the same for yourself. These oils are a popular natural remedy for dry, itchy skin and cracked lips.

You can even mix essential oils with natural baby oils to take your skin and hair care routine up a notch.

If you're looking for a massage oil that works for both babies and adults, try out Nature's Baby Organics Organic Massage & Baby Oil (Mandarin Coconut). If you're interested in shower oil, take a look at the Gentle Foaming Shower Oil for Mom and Baby.

Baby Wipes

Hypoallergenic baby wipes can be used as facial wipes and makeup removers. Basically, baby wipes can double as wet wipes! They also tend to have no artificial fragrances, unlike regular wet wipes that are meant for freshening purposes.

You can also use a baby wipe to clean your hands when you're outside and can't access soap and water. Additionally, baby wipes can also be used to clean pets' paws!

Baby Powder

Baby powder can be used to absorb sweat and oil, stay dry, freshen up your hair, and remove pesky sand from the body after a beach day. However, make sure you're using a baby powder that doesn't contain talc or cornstarch. Check out this article to know more about the risks of talc-based baby powders.

If you have oily skin, baby powder can be used as a setting powder for your makeup. Simply dust some baby powder on your face after applying foundation and before putting on the rest of your makeup.

You can also use baby powder to prevent chafing in areas such as the thighs or under the breast. When it comes to the elderly, baby powder can be used to prevent the skin from chafing against the waistband of adult diapers.

Additionally, baby powder can also be used to absorb moisture from smelly shoes and temporarily prevent stinky feet. The fresh smell of the powder will be an added bonus!

Here's an article that explores a bunch of ways you can use the Nature's Baby Organics Organic Silky Baby Powder (Fragrance Free). Our dusting powder is USDA Certified organic, talc and cornstarch free, and made up of tapioca starch, chamomile and echinacea. 

Baby Food

Believe it or not, baby food can be used as a face mask! Just mash up some avocado or banana and apply it to your face for a quick, nourishing mask. You can also add a little bit of baby food to your regular face mask recipe for an extra boost of nutrients.

Additionally, baby food can be used as a hair treatment! If you have dry, damaged hair, mashed avocado or banana can be applied to your hair and scalp as a deep-conditioning treatment. Simply leave it on for 20 minutes before rinsing it out with cold water.

So, the next time you're preparing or buying baby food, keep a little bit of it aside for your own skin and hair care routine. Pureed fruits and vegetables nourish from both inside and outside!

Baby Towels

Baby towels are often softer and more absorbent than regular adult towels. They can be used as bath towels, hair towels, or baby wipes.

If you have sensitive skin, baby towels are a great option as they are less likely to cause irritation due to how soft and breathable their fabric is. Plus, their small size makes them perfect for travel!
