The Healthy Start Baby Skin Deserves
Having a newborn is an emotional time full of joy. But it can also be overwhelming. Your little bundle of joy doesn’t come with a manual, so how can you be sure you’re doing the right thing?
Although your newborn baby’s skin starts off soft and irresistibly touchable, it needs your help to stay that way. After all, baby skin is thinner and more sensitive than an adult’s.
According to Dr Piotrowski, the Head of Medical of Galderma at the Consumer Business Unit, it’s essential to make sure your baby’s soft skin remains hydrated. “Without a proper skincare regime, your baby’s skin can become dry and irritated, making it susceptible to a range of skin problems such as dryness and hypersensitivity”, she explains.
With Cetaphil’s 5-Fold Baby Protection, giving your baby’s skin a healthy start isn’t something you need to work out alone. Cetaphil Baby’s range of dermatologist-recommended products deliver the hydration and moisturisation your baby’s skin needs, day and night.
5-Fold Baby Protection
Harnessing the power of nature, Cetaphil Baby’s range of body washes, shampoos and lotions provide 5 areas of protection for your baby’s delicate skin, keeping it soft but strong. It achieves that with a range of clinically proven and dermatologically tested products.
- Gentle - It’s non-irritating, making it gentle on delicate skin.
- Soothing - Provides daily soothing and comfort to baby skin.
- Hypoallergenic - Allergy-tested.
- Moisture seal - Helps baby’s skin retain its natural moisture to stay healthy-looking.
- Skin barrier - Respects your baby’s protective skin barrier.
“From birth, your baby’s skin is exposed to daily irritants. The good news is that opting for gentle, caring baby products in their skincare routine is one of the best ways to protect your baby’s soft, sensitive skin,” explains Dr Piotrowski.
That’s why with its unique 5-Fold Baby Protection, Cetaphil Baby provides the daily protection your baby needs to support the healthy development of their natural skin barrier.
A Gentle Touch
Alongside using Cetaphil Baby’s gentle formulas, incorporating the physical touch of massage into your little one’s routine also has many added benefits for your baby. It can improve weight gain, aid digestion, improve circulation, and ease teething pain. Plus, it’s an excellent way for you and your partner to bond with your baby.
The soothing strokes of your hands stimulate the production of serotonin, dubbed the “feel-good hormone”, in you and your baby, providing relaxation for you both.
Combining this with skincare helps you bond with your baby while protecting their skin and maintaining its moisture, which, according to Dr Piotrowski, reduces the risk of skin infections, increases hydration, and reduces dryness, redness and irritation. “All of that adds up to better sleeping patterns and a happier baby,” she says.
