Types of Face Powder-baby-powderBaby powder will be delicate than talc and talcum. The baby’s skin will be very delicate and we should use the powder which is softer than that. Normally the baby powders will not have the fragrance or colour and will not cause any allergy to the skin. We can apply after the bath that too after wiping out the wetness. We can apply the body fold near the diaper. Don’t use the powder often to the children. The powder for adults will have more fragrance. So do not use the powder to the babies. Use the powder to the babies only which is of a good brand.

Medicated Powder

We can use anti-bacterial powder for normal itching and mixed powder for fungal infections. Anti-fungal powder is very popular nowadays. The powder is prescribed by the doctors after bath on the body folds (Intertrigo) for the fungal infections. It will help to prevent rashes. The folding may be more if they are fat and more sweat. If they are dry they may avoid the friction in those parts. We can use the anti-fungal powder for body fold area infections through the water. Another type is antibiotic powder. It is prescribed by the doctors for the wounds.

The powder is useful while waxing too. The powder is applied at the places where the hairs should be removed and then waxing is done to make it easy.  In the same way powder is used in eyebrow threading. We can remove the hairs only if the places are dry and without sweat.  Pain will also be less. Dusting powder is used while doing pedicure.  The legs will be out of sweat. We can use this powder to avoid the foul smell while using shoe and socks.
