Our skin is extremely delicate, and following a skincare routine is essential for everyone, even for kids. Developing a thorough skincare routine helps prevent skin rashes and irritation in babies. Babies crawl on the floor and are constantly exposed to dirt and bacteria. Due to this reason, having an appropriate skincare routine for babies is extremely crucial.
Day-Night Skincare Routine for Your Baby
Starting the day with a gentle wake-up routine for your baby is a terrific approach. It’s critical to keep your baby’s skin moisturised and protected with Lotus Herbals BABY TENDER Touch Baby Body Lotion or Lotus Herbals BABY FEATHERY Pecks Soft Baby Cream.
Setting up a relaxing nighttime routine will help you and your kid obtain a good night’s sleep. It’s the ideal time to give your infant a relaxing massage. While using a light face, Lotus Herbals BABY ETERNAL Love Baby Massage Oil, the comfort of your touch helps keep newborns’ sensitive skin nourished overnight.
Here are some of the baby skincare products that you can use:
Sunscreens for Babies
One of the most important points to consider while setting up a skincare routine for babies is adequate exposure to sunlight. Sunlight is crucial for newborns because it aids in absorbing Vitamin D. While a short contact with the sunrays is beneficial to babies, prolonged exposure without sun protection can result in sunburn and long-term damage to their delicate skin. Though you can avoid prolonged exposure to the sun’s direct rays, for safety, a good kids cream preferably, a sunscreen can be helpful.
- You can protect your baby’s delicate skin from the damaging effects of the sun rays with the Lotus BABY + SUNSCREEN SPF 20 PA+++. This baby sunscreen has the goodness of calendula extracts and is enriched with minerals like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. In addition, the sunscreen features an invisible finish while protecting your kid from harmful UV rays.
- You can also use Safe Sun Kids Sunscreen Cream SPF 25 with chamomile extracts with anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, it is proven to be safe for kids’ delicate skin. The sunscreen counters the harmful sun rays and preserves the supple texture of the soft skin.
Body Lotions and Creams
Newborns’ skin is sensitive and prone to irritation and dryness. Although baby skin does not require frequent moisturisation, it does get dry after washes and may need a little moisturiser to replace the natural skin oils lost due to bathing or exposure to dry air. As a result, body lotion to protect your child’s skin is safe for use. You can try Lotus Herbals BABY TENDER Touch Baby Body Lotion to keep your baby’s skin softer and hydrated. In addition, choose the Lotus Herbals BABY FEATHERY Pecks Soft Baby Cream to prevent all the itchiness and dryness.
Gentle Cleanser and shampoo for baby’s hair
As a result of losing natural oils, a child’s skin becomes less hydrated. So, you should use Lotus Herbals Baby Little Bubbles Gentle Bathing Soap that does not remove the essential oils from the baby’s skin. Additionally, Lotus Herbals BABY Gentle Cleansing Shampoo can be used for the hair.
Baby Rash creams
Baby rash creams are used to treat or prevent dry and rough skin, as well as minor skin irritations (like diaper rash). These creams soften and hydrate the skin while also reducing irritation and itching. You can use BABY+ HAPPY Bums Diaper Rash Cream when rashes appear on your baby’s skin due to the excessive use of diapers.
Use NO- TALC powders only
Using talcum powder on your newborn is not a smart idea. Ingredients in it may irritate your baby’s sensitive skin. After a bath, using Lotus Herbals BABY LOVE Sprinkle “NO Talc” Powder or a soft towel is much better for drying your infant.
Tips for preventing dryness and itchiness on baby’s skin
Irritation can be caused by milk rash, chilly weather, and allergies. Here are a few suggestions for keeping their skin moisturised during the winter months or after a bath:
- Massage and Bath Oils: Add 1–2 drops of Lotus Herbals BABY ETERNAL Love Baby Massage Oil to their bathwater (for babies over three months old).
- You may also occasionally get away with simply cleaning your baby from head to toe with a warm washcloth. Allowing their skin to self-regulate is an excellent approach to prevent it from becoming dry or itchy.
