Among the thousands of grooming products that exist today, lies a very fine talcum powder. Commonly known as baby powder, talcum powder does, in fact, offer some benefits for all of that facial fuzz you’re sporting, and the skin underneath! Here’s everything you need to know about talcum powder and how it can help in your skincare routine.
Talcum powder is a refined, powdery form of one of the softest minerals in the earth, talc. Mainly made of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen, Talc does not generate a chemical reaction when used on the skin, which is a bonus for you (and babies – and even the baby-faced non-bearded adults)!
Talcum powder is typically used as the very last thing in your shaving routine (you can also use it as a dry shampoo). Simply apply it to the face and neck and you’re good to go!
Benefits of Talcum Powder:
- Calms cools and softens the skin after a shave
- Helps cut down on friction and prevents rashes and bumps
- Absorbs moisture and oil to keep skin dry
- Relieves itch
You see, talcum powder isn’t just for babies’ bottoms!
