Applying olive oil makes a baby fair or dark? Please help me out with answers
In my case "MY BABY TURNED DARK WHEN I APPLIED IT".
according to me CASTOR OIL is "THE BEST".
i apply olive oild for my baby, but any way i did't notice any change,
applying normal castor oil for the full body is enough
Olive oil lightens the skin colour.
I have been using it for massaging my lil one rt from the time she was born till now. Presently she is 3 yrs old .So now I give her oil massage weekly.
I am using Olive oil for my son right from the beginning -- got adviced by my doctor in Delhi. It is definetly safe to use Olive oil for baby.
I also used olive oil for my baby. Its safe on baby's skin though I dont think it has any effect on the skin colour.
I have also been using olive oil for massages for my son .. I feel it doesnt have any making fairer or darker qualities..It just soothens the skin and makes it soft .. I live in italy whr olive oil is used extensively in food as well as cosmetic purpose (softening the skin)hope it helps..
I have read few articles where it says olive oil gives a light tan to our skin, but it is very nourishing oil and good for skin. but becos of this i apply only to hair and not to body.
if u r worried abt this color changes of skin, u can try vitamin E oil, coconut oil which will give a glow to the skin, even sesame oil which is very good for oil bath. i apply sesame oil every sat for my son from head to toe and give him a head bath and he would sleep for 3 hrs. atleast i get to relax that time lol!
ive been using olive oil since my baby was born, it has no side effects.
olive oil wont turn skin dark color. it makes skin soft & smooth
dont worry. go ahead
