A few weeks back, I went to a Johnson's Beauty event to see how you can use these products everyday especially for those that do not have children! As a fashion stylist, I always have a number of ways of how I use products in my day to day life. You've seen me include a number of the items in various Instagram posts when I'm organizing, outdoors here and here. I am an avid user of the baby oil as it keeps my skin moisturizer and is great to calm your skin if you have areas that rub together especially in this heat. Johnson's Baby Powder is something I really like using and a stylist, there may be some tips that you can use as well.
While I was at the event, I learned that if you're on the beach and you're trying to get sand off of you, sprinkle some baby powder on your hands or areas that are affected and rub them together - the sand falls off! If you want to take off the residue baby powder, their baby wipes are the perfect way to take everything off. In addition here are tips that I use daily whether at home, on set, when styling my clients and more:
FASHION STYLIST TIPS
Treat Your Oily Stains
When I'm on set or a client has worn a garment, you realize that oils from food has landed on a piece that either needs to be returned to a showroom or is apart of my styling closet. I don't always take my fabric pens with me but by dabbing a bit of baby powder on the affected area, I am able to stop the stain from getting into the clothing and can treat it with either dry cleaning or washing it.
Skin to Clothing Contact
Fashion is a funny business as a number of my fashion editorial shoots that I style takes place at opposite portions of the season! When I styled a May shoot, I happened to do this on a 10 degree day in March and my upcoming Sept shoot which focuses on fall with leather and fur, this was shot on a 98 degree day in May! On a hot day when my models are wearing lambskin and other garments, to cool their skin, a thin layer of baby powder not only gives them a bit of cooling relief but when they pull off these layers which tend to stick (think of sitting in a car with leather seats against your bare skin), they are able to peel it off much easier! It's also very easy to remove as well.
Untangling Pesky Jewelry Chains
I use jewelry rolls when I am carrying my jewelry to set, working with my clients or when I go on air as an Accessory Expert to talk about fashion, style and accessories - as I need to have everything as organized as possible. They are then returned to these rolls when I am done. But there are times when delicate chains get knotted (sometimes when they arrive to me via mail or messenger), this happens as well. Untangling these items causes a lot of time and sometimes, I couldn't use them in the past; however, Johnson's Baby Powder is such a great item to have for this. I simply sprinkle some on the chains to loosen the knot then I have a thin pin that helps me to work the knot out! If you have a grouping of chains that you have been avoiding, this is definitely a weekend project to do!
