Care tips to protect your baby's delicate skin


baby skin care tips

New parents are very careful when choosing products for their babies. Most newborns are prone to skin blemishes that may harm their skin. Here are some care tips to protect your baby's delicate skin to keep them soft and smooth.

1. Resist the urge to bathe the baby often

Newborn babies have natural oil that protects their skin. Frequent bathing will strip off this oil and may cause dryness. You can give your baby a regular bath but it doesn't mean it is necessary to do it everyday. Baby skin loses moisture more quickly than adult skin that is why daily bathing is not recommended. Keep the bath 5-10 minutes short only. Make sure you pat them dry before putting on the diaper and clean clothes.

Johnson's ® Milk + Oats bath helps restore dry skin and works best when used with Johnson's ® Milk + Oats lotion. This new formulation is infused with milk proteins and 300% more oat extracts* compared to previous formulation.

2. Be mindful of the products you apply on your baby's skin

Soap may contain harsh ingredients that are harmful on your baby's skin. For your baby's hair and body, use Aveeno Baby Daily Wash & Shampoo. For newborns and babies with sensitive skin, this tear-free formula gently cleanses without drying. 

Pediatrician-recommended, the formula contains natural oat extract, which helps soothe while gently nourishing delicate skin. The rich lathering formula rinses clean, leaving a light, fresh fragrance. This combination baby wash and shampoo is soap-free, hypoallergenic, and safe for daily use.

3. Watch out for common skin irritants

Inflammation of the skin or most commonly referred as contact dermatitis is caused by skin irritants. Your baby's skin may appear reddish, rough, dry, or swollen. Some of the irritants are urine, baby detergent, perfume, and latex. 

4. Address baby's dry skin

Some babies may have very dry skin. To avoid aggravating the condition to cracked skin, you need to apply a hypoallergenic baby cream helps soothe and relieve dry, sensitive skin.
