October 21, 2011

Last week, we all shared our different beauty uses for Johnson’s Baby Oil. Now let us look at what you can do with Johnson’s Baby Powder!

Dry shampoo. From Angelina Jolie to Amanda Bynes to Eva Mendes, celebrities love using baby powder to instantly fluff up limp locks and restore volume for a tousled look. Just make sure you apply sparingly if you have dark hair.

Mascara primer. You probably have heard about dusting loose powder on your lashes as a primer for fuller, thicker lashes but did you know you can use Baby Powder too? Eva Longoria is said to be a fan of this trick.

Deodorant. Thanks to its cooling properties, baby powder can get rid of sweat and dampness in a jiffy, leaving skin feeling soft, fresh and comfortable.

Setting powder. Talc, which is found in baby powder, is great for setting makeup, especially theatrical grease paints. Use only as an emergency fix and if you have light skin as breathing in too much talc can be harmful.

Johnson’s Baby Powder is available at drugstores nationwide for $3.99 for 15 oz.
