Can Baby Oil Be Used As A Night Mask?
Hello, my name is Isal Mardiana, 16 years old, can I use a baby oil mask mixed with rose water for mlm masks until morning? Are there any side effects or not? Please explain
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically baby oil is made from mineral oil which, when applied to the skin, forms a protective layer over the skin that can help reduce evaporation from the skin and maintain skin moisture. Mineral oil itself is not comedogenic meaning it will not clog your pores and will not cause acne. However, there are some things you need to consider if you want to use baby oil as a mask:
Baby oil contains fragrance and your skin can experience allergic reactions or irritation to the fragrance content in it. We recommend that you still do a patch test first before you want to use baby oil all over your face. Make sure you have cleaned your face thoroughly before you use baby oil. As mentioned above, baby oil will form a protective layer over your skin which will prevent evaporation from the skin. If there is dirt or residual cosemetics on your skin (which has the potential to clog pores), and you apply baby oil on it, then your pores will increasingly be unable to remove the dirt / residual cosmetics and pimples can appear because of it. Baby oil will not absorb into your skin, which will cause your facial skin to become sticky and oily. If you use it before you sleep, baby oil can stick to your pillow or bolster and cause discomfort when you sleep. You should try to consider the things above before you want to use baby oil on your face.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
