The delicate skin of a newborn is a pure but fragile thing. As parents, ensuring the wellbeing of your bundle of joy is important. And this includes establishing a meticulous skincare regime for your baby. Being a parent involves making a lot of decisions, not least of which, what products you use on your baby's skin. From baby wash and shampoo to daily lotion, every choice you make contributes to the overall health of your little one's skin. Understanding Baby Skin Before delving into the how-to of a establishing a good skincare routine for your baby, it's important to understand the unique nature of infant skin. First, baby skin is thinner than that of adults. Second, it has fewer natural oils. These two factors make baby skin that much more susceptible to dryness, irritation, and environmental factors. The products you select for their skin should therefore be: mild, hypoallergenic, and free from harsh chemicals and fragrances. Wash and Shampoo When choosing a baby wash and shampoo, opt for products that are specially formulated for sensitive infant skin. Look for words like 'tear-free', 'hypoallergenic' and 'gentle' on the label. These words indicate that the product has been designed to minimise the risk of skin or eye irritation. Look for ingredients that contain soothing and skin-loving properties. A good example would be Pro-Vitamin B5 which is both anti-inflammatory and hydrating for skin, helping relieve itchiness and dryness, as well as aid in healing of compromised skin barrier. One brand that is great for newborn skin and safe for daily use is Cetaphil. For this, we recommend Cetaphil Baby Gentle and Wash and Shampoo. This gentle, tear-free formula leaves baby\u2019s skin and hair soft and smooth with a light, fresh fragrance. \tGently cleanses hair and scalp without drying formulated for baby's delicate skin \tClinically proven to cleanse gently \tTear-free formula specifically designed to be used daily, head-to-toe \tHypoallergenic and pH balanced \tDermatologically & Ophthalmologically tested \tSuitable for newborns Daily Lotion Applying lotion helps lock in moisture, keeping the skin hydrated and supple. Look for lotions that are fragrance-free and enriched with natural emollients like shea butter, cocoa butter, or jojoba oil. These ingredients create a protective barrier on the skin without causing any irritation. After bathing, pat your baby's skin dry and gently massage in a small amount of lotion. Pay close attention to areas prone to dryness. These include elbows, knees, and cheeks. Always remember that a little goes a long way. You don't want to overwhelm the skin with excessive product. Before introducing any new product into the routine, perform a patch test. Apply a small amount of the product on a small area of your baby's skin and observe for any adverse reactions over the next 24 hours. If there's no redness, rash, or irritation, it's likely safe to use the product on a wider scale. For this, we recommend Cetaphil Baby Daily Lotion. This gentle baby lotion is designed to soothe and nourish, while moisturising and protecting your baby\u2019s skin from dryness. \tFormulated with shea butter to moisturise and protect baby\u2019s sensitive skin from dryness \tKeeps your baby\u2019s delicate skin hydrated for 24 hours \tSoothes, softens skin and improves skin texture \tDermatologically tested and clinically proven to be gentle on sensitive skin The products you choose play a pivotal role in safeguarding your baby's delicate skin. So, go for hypoallergenic, fragrance-free options that are formulated specifically for infant skin.
