But it's not only adults who should take care of their skin and nurture it properly. Our youngest loved ones also need care and good products that are gentle on their skin. If you want to become more aware of how to take care of your baby's skin, then you are in the right place. Today, we will provide you with some tips on how to keep your baby's skin soft and smooth in a simple way. Keep reading to find out how you can provide your baby's skin with everything it needs and avoid irritations.
Cleanse your baby's skin without drying it out
Skincare always begins with cleansing. It's obvious that you also need to clean your baby's skin, but is it okay to use the products that adults use on children? Sometimes it works, but it depends entirely on the cleansing products you use. If you use strong and drying products, it's not a good idea to use them on children.
The first step in baby skincare is a gentle body wash. Children often have very sensitive skin that can easily become dry or irritated. Therefore, as a parent, you need to make sure you use skin-friendly products that won't cause any problems for your baby.
What we can recommend is that you check out our latest product - Organic Baby Wash from our new Baby series. This Baby Wash is formulated with aloe vera and olive oil, which soothes the skin while cleansing your baby's skin. The product contains no strong chemicals, perfumes, artificial colors, silicones, or other chemicals that don't belong on a baby's sensitive skin. Newborns (up to 3 months) do not need to use any Baby Wash, but it is excellent for older babies and todlers.
Extra tip for bath time: Bathe the baby for 3-5 minutes in warm water. Do not let the baby stay in the water for too long.
Moisturize your baby's skin regularly
The skin is affected by many external factors and stresses. Children's skin is thinner and more sensitive than ours, which means it is even more susceptible to factors such as heat, cold, and humidity. Therefore, a baby's skin can often become dry, chapped, easily irritated, or prone to rashes. But fortunately, there is a simple solution.
To make the skin soft and healthy, you need to moisturize it. Of course, this also applies to your little baby. After bathing your baby, but while the skin is still slightly damp, we recommend that you apply a moisturizing and nourishing baby cream. We have recently released an Organic Baby Cream that has both moisturizing and soothing effects. Just like the Body Wash, our Baby Cream is also made from gentle, natural ingredients and without harmful or strong chemicals. The cream contains almond oil and sunflower oil, which protect and nourish the skin. It works great after a bath, but you can also use it if your baby's skin becomes red or irritated from diapers. It's a must-have in baby skincare.
Have you noticed that your baby has cradle cap or that the skin is flaking? Then we have an extra tip that can help you keep your baby's skin soft and smooth and prevent dryness. Use a gentle baby oil that can penetrate deep into the skin and provide your child's skin with all the nourishment it needs. Our Organic Baby Oil is a perfect blend of organic almond oil, sunflower oil, and argan oil. You can use the oil in the bath, for baby massage, or as extra hydration on dry areas. It is, of course, free from all unnecessary chemicals, perfumes, colors, etc. Baby oil moisturizes, soothes, and protects your baby's dry and sensitive skin.
Avoid strong chemicals and perfumes to take care of your baby's skin properly
As we have already mentioned several times, baby's skin is quite sensitive, so you need to carefully choose skincare products that suit sensitive skin. To care for your baby's delicate skin, you need to be careful when choosing skincare for children and babies.
A strong tip is to make sure you only use products that do not contain a lot of strong substances and chemicals that can irritate a baby's skin. We recommend that you avoid synthetic substances, perfumes, artificial colors, chemicals, allergens, strong sulfates, and similar ingredients. Instead, choose organic and gentle products with natural ingredients that nourish sensitive skin.
Is SPF an important step in baby and child skincare?
We often talk about SPF, and to remind you of its importance. Sunscreen is essential, but do you also need to use SPF on your baby? The answer is no. Let us explain.
You absolutely need to protect your baby's skin from the sun. But using SPF can lead to rashes on a baby's sensitive skin. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not apply SPF to babies under 6 months old. Instead, you can protect their skin by avoiding direct sunlight. You can use an umbrella, clothing, hats, and UV protection for the stroller to shield newborns from the sun's rays.
Choose the very best in baby skincare
When it comes to skincare for babies and children, it's important that you only choose safe and gentle products that don't irritate their sensitive skin. That's why Under Your Skin has developed delightful products that are suitable for baby's skin and have a soothing and moisturizing effect. So if you want to take care of your baby's skin in the best way possible, our tip is that you take a look at our Baby series and pay attention to the ingredients and products you use in your child's skincare routine.
