Your baby’s skin protects the rest of the body from the outside world. It defends against bacteria and irritants while regulating the internal temperature. It allows your little one to explore the world through touch. And while it may look perfect, it’s incredibly delicate and requires extra care during the first years of life.
Compared to an adult’s skin, a baby’s skin is 30% thinner, absorbs and loses moisture faster, and is more susceptible to irritation. As they adapt to the world, your baby may experience skin peeling, baby acne, cradle cap, nappy rash, and other skin problems.
Thus, you need products specially formulated for your baby’s delicate skin to develop a newborn baby skin care routine that's right for your baby.
A baby products should always be gentle and be derived from natural ingredients. Read the label and make sure the products are free from fragrances, dyes, and chemicals that could irritate the baby’s skin. Consider hypoallergenic products as they’re less likely to irritate skin. Also, look for paraben- and phthalate-free products as they could be harmful to your baby.
Whenever available, go for natural baby skincare products, this will help reduce risk of baby rashes. Keep in mind that if your family has a history of asthma or allergies to specific herbs and botanicals, your baby may have sensitive skin to these products.
Avoid using strong antibacterial or antimicrobial products on your baby’s skin. Opt for mild liquid cleansers or alcohol-free baby wipes. If your baby has dry skin, emollient-based products will help rejuvenate it.
