As your baby grows, and becomes more active you might find it harder to keep their skin as baby-soft as it was when they were a newborn. But, there’s some simple things you can do to maintain that soft, smooth skin as they grow.
As a parent with your own skincare regime, you will understand how vital maintaining a good routine is and just how important baby skincare is too. It’s a great idea to start a nourishing skincare routine early on so they’re comfortable and healthy day after day. Here’s our tips to maintaining their beautiful baby-soft skin.
Only use natural products
One of the most effective steps you can take to maintain baby soft skin is to use natural skincare products for babies. Natural and organic ingredients are gentle and highly effective.
Organic and natural products work with nature, not against it. Organically grown ingredients usually have higher nutrient levels, plus, there’s no chemical residues that can irritate skin or potentially cause long term harm in the body.
It’s no surprise that a baby’s skin is much more vulnerable to irritants. The best way to look at it is that skin absorbs whatever you put on it, so you only want the best quality ingredients being absorbed into your baby’s skin.
Create a bath time routine
An easy and fun way to start maintaining baby-soft-skin while building a subtle and gentle skincare routine for your baby is during bath time. What better way to bond with your baby while also caring for and focusing on skincare than with some soft and gentle bubble bath. And after bath time, apply a moisturising lotion to promote softness and prevent dry skin.
For extra care and parent-to-baby connection, why not try some baby massage oil. Not only will your baby’s skin be soft to touch they’ll also feel much more calm and content. It’s perfect for relaxation before bed time.
Moisturising before bed
For those nights when you’re not planning a bath you can mix up the routine by applying a good moisturiser before laying your baby down to sleep. Overnight, while your baby rests, baby lotion is absorbed by the skin leaving your little one with, baby-soft-skin. It can also help with a good night’s sleep, because your little one will be comfortable all night long.
Eliminate nappy rash
Nappy rash can cause irritation and upset for your baby, so by applying a soothing cream will help comfort them. Nappy rash can be especially prevalent during teething and when they have sniffles or aren’t feeling well. Preventing rashes and irritation on your baby’s sensitive areas can promote baby soft skin.
Maintaining the softness and suppleness of your baby’s skin as they grow can be made simple, fun and safe just by following these easy steps. Developing a daily skincare routine for your baby will pay off in the long run for preserving their delicate, baby-soft skin.
