Your child’s skin is much thinner and more delicate than yours. It’s also more vulnerable to external elements, which explains why their skin gets irritated more easily.
Here are some tips to gently care for their skin:
1. Moisturise regularly
A child’s skin is prone to dryness and loses moisture more quickly than you think. So make it a point to moisturise often, especially after bath, to keep their skin nourished and well-hydrated. You can try Cetaphil Baby Daily Lotion, as it contains shea butter that helps moisturise your child’s skin.
2. Massage them
While moisturising, do include some massages too. As children depend a lot on human touch and gentle care, massaging is a great way to connect with them. Just start with light strokes from the chest, and gradually move to the arms and tummy. All while maintaining eye contact with them.
3. Minimise bathtime
Try not to bathe your child too often, as frequent baths could remove the natural oils that nourish and protect their delicate skin. So if your child does not normally go through a highly active day, do keep their baths to a minimum.
4. Use gentle and hypoallergenic products
Choose only mild and gentle products. A product that is safe for your child should be hypoallergenic, soap-free and dermatologically-tested. That’s how you know the formulation is gentle on their skin.
