Hello all I have a 6 month old baby girl, i have been using olive oil for her skin massage before her bath. but recently i heard that olive oil tans the skin. Is it true ? are there any better choice? Is almond oil a better choice?

I don't think olive oil does not tan the skin. it should be fine with your baby. using Almond oil might be a little bit heat to your baby so you may only use on winter days. Go with olive oil, Don't worry about it.

I have never heard of olive oil being a tanning product. I however always saw the life guards carrying around bottles of baby oil that were tinted with iodine when I was younger for tanning they swore by it. That was in the days BEFORE we knew how dangerous being tanned so much was though.
