The Ultimate Guide to Skincare for Babies

Caring for a baby's delicate skin requires a gentle touch and the right products. To protect their sensitive skin, it's essential to use items with minimal ingredients, free from softeners, essential oils, mineral oils, preservatives, fragrances, and colourants. Here you'll find more information on protecting baby's sensitive skin. For more insights on the ultimate guide to skincare for babies, continue reading below.

Cleansing

Newborn skin is incredibly sensitive and needs time to develop. The best way to cleanse it is with warm water only. Bath additives are unnecessary and can dehydrate the skin. For babies with dry skin, adding a few drops of baby oil to the bathwater can help. After bathing, you can apply a mild, unscented lotion like the Baby & Child Neutral Moisturising Cream by lavera, which is suitable for both body and face, nourishing the skin with high-quality ingredients.

Once your baby's skin becomes more resilient, try the Weleda Calendula Cleansing Lotion and Shampoo. This product gently cleanses and nourishes the skin with almond and sesame oils and calendula extract from organic farms.

Diaper Rash

Diaper rash is a common issue due to limited air exposure. Frequent diaper changes and thorough cleaning with water can help prevent irritation. If a rash does occur, give the skin time to breathe by leaving the diaper off when possible. To care for irritated skin, use a cream like Weleda's Calendula Nappy Change Cream, which nourishes the skin with calendula and chamomile blossoms from organic farms and helps prevent future rashes. Another excellent choice is Pilogen Bio-Bio Baby Zinc Oxide Paste, enriched with high-quality oils, vitamins, and calendula blossoms, forming a protective barrier against moisture.

Sun Protection

Protecting your baby’s skin from the sun is crucial. Their skin is highly susceptible to damage as many protective functions are still developing. Early exposure to the sun can lead to severe outcomes, including an increased risk of skin cancer.

Use natural sunscreen, such as the Baby & Kids Sunscreen SPF 50+ by ECO-Cosmetics, with the highest possible SPF (50+), ensuring it’s suitable for sensitive skin and free from perfumes and fragrances. Opt for mineral-based sunscreens that protect against UVA, UVB, and UVC rays, and choose waterproof formulations.

Final Tips

If you are unsure about which products are best for your baby, always consult a paediatrician.
