How to take care of your baby’s skin and keep it soft

Nowadays, we talk a lot about skincare and how important it is to take care of the skin daily. We’re creating our skincare routines and look for products and ingredients that work for our needs. But it’s not just us adults who need to take care of the skin correctly. Our little ones also need care and good products that are gentle to the skin. If you want to find out how you can take care of your baby’s skin, you’re in the right place. Today, we’ll give you some tips for keeping your kid’s skin soft in a simple way. Continue reading to find out how you can give your baby’s skin everything that it craves and avoid irritations. 

Clean the 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 same products we adults use on kids? Sometimes it is, but it completely depends on which products you’re using. If you’re using harsh and drying products, it’s not a good idea to use those on kids. 

The first step in skincare for babies is a mild body wash. Kids often have very sensitive skin that easily gets dry and irritated. That’s why you as a parent need to make sure you’re using mild products that won’t cause issues for your baby.

Something that we can recommend is checking out our new Organic Baby Wash from our Baby collection. This Baby Wash is formulated with aloe vera and olive oil, which calms the skin and nourishes the baby’s skin. The product doesn’t have any strong chemicals, perfumes, artificial colors, silicons or other chemicals that don’t belong on babies’ skin. Newborn babies up to 3 months don’t need to use a Baby Wash, but it is a great choice for older babies and kids.

Extra tip for bath time: Bathe your baby for 3-5 minutes in warm water. Don’t let the baby stay in the water for too long.

Moisturize your baby’s skin regularly

The skin is affected by a lot of outside factors and stresses. Kids’ skin is much thinner and more delicate than ours, so it’s more sensitive to factors like warmth, cold, humidity. That’s why babies’ skin often gets dry, rough and easily irritated or prone to rashes. But, luckily, there’s a simple solution.

To get soft and healthy skin, you have to moisturize. The same goes for your little baby. After the bath, while the skin is still damp, we recommend moisturizing your baby’s skin with a hydrating and nourishing baby cream. We have recently launched an Organic Baby Cream that simultaneously has a moisturizing and calming effect. Just like our Baby Wash, our Baby Cream is also made with gentle, natural ingredients and without any harsh or harmful chemicals. The cream has almond oil and sunflower oil that protect and nourish the skin. It’s great to use after the bath, but you can even use it when your baby’s skin gets red or irritated from the diapers. It’s a must when it comes to skincare for babies.

Have you notices that your baby has scabs or flaky skin? Then we have one extra tip that can help you keep your baby’s skin soft and prevent dryness. Use a nice baby oil that goes deep into the skin and gives it all the nourishment that it craves. Our Organic Baby Oil is a perfect blend of organic almond oil, sunflower oil and argan oil. You can use it for bath time, for a baby massage, or as an additional moisturizer on dry skin areas. Of course, it’s free from all unnecessary chemicals, perfumes, colors, etc. The Baby Oil moisturizes, soothes and protects the baby’s dry and sensitive skin.

Avoid strong chemicals and perfumes to take care of your baby’s skin right

As we’ve already mentioned, babies’ skin is very sensitive, so you need to carefully choose skincare that works for them. To take care of baby’s delicate skin, you need to be thoughtful when choosing skincare products.

We strongly recommend only using product that don’t have any strong ingredients and chemicals that can irritate the baby’s skin. Try staying away from synthetic ingredients, 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 important in skincare for babies?

We often talk about SPF and point out its importance. Sun protection iis super important, but do you 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 cause a rash on the baby’s sensitive skin. That’s why we recommend not using SPF on babies younger than 6 months. Instead, you can protect their skin from the sun by avoiding direct sunlight. You can also use a parasol, clothes, hats and UV protection for the stroller in order to protect newborns from sun rays. 

Choose the very best skin care products for your baby

When it comes to skincare for babies and kids, it’s important to only choose safe and gentle products that don’t irritate their sensitive skin. That’s why Under Your Skin has created lovely products that suit the baby’s skin and have a calming and moisturizing effect. So, if you want to take care of your baby’s skin in the best way, we suggest checking out of Baby collection and becoming careful with ingredients and products you use in your kid’s skincare.
