Yes oil can be a good option Healthy skin routine: During bathing after after you have rinsed the soap, take little food grade natural oil like coconut oil, desi ghee, almond oil etc. and evenly apply on the body. Now pour 2 -3 mugs of water over it. If skin is still dry then apply moisturizer. 2020-02-07 14:11:41

Traditional oils like coconut, almond, desi ghee can be used for both head and body. Mustard oil is also good but it is rough and can cause allergy in some babies. 2020-02-07 14:17:06
