HEALTHY BABIES SKINCARE SECRETS
Read this before you shop for your baby skincare products.
The shopping process for baby skin care products is most important in starting off your baby on a healthy path. This is where knowledge on what exactly to get, and what to avoid, is necessary.
With so many brands promising "amazing" result, it is a chore to sift within them and make a right choice. Your baby’s skin is a very delicate matter, and this is why, in early months, as the baby’s immune system develops, taking in elements from the atmosphere, it is necessary that the products used are majorly organic and nature derived products. This way, irritation and inflammation of your baby’s skin is avoided and at most greatly reduced.
WHAT TO AVOID:
>In the early months of your baby’s life, it is most crucial to shop only products that are dye and fragrance free.
>Avoid any product which lists Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) among its ingredient. SLS is a harsh synthetic chemical commonly found in shampoos, conditioners, body creams, and even baby soaps. It is a known irritant, and it is proven to be harsh on your baby’s skin.
>Ingredients like polyethylene and polyethylene glycol are harmful toxic substances popularly present in baby products.
> Essential oils must be avoided on your newborn, because studies have suggested that the addition of essential oils to products can disrupt the hormonal balance of children. (Fergie, 2010)
THE TWO SIMPLE ESSENTIALS FOR A HEALTHY BABY SKIN ARE:
the use of Medicated Soaps for your baby, only use this under medical advice. Only children with skin problems such as eczema or similar skin diseases may require medicated soaps. Your baby’s skin is more soft and sensitive than adult skin, hence shopping only for a mild bathing soap such as Semsey Olive Soap or Shea Butter Soap. These soaps are contain no additives and have been pH neutralized, keeping your baby skin healthy and germ free. Most pediatricians advice the use of such mild soaps which are designed solely for your baby. Do not get tempted by brand names!!!
MOISTURIZERS: OILS & CREAMS.
Be aware that the more often you bathe your baby, and the longer bath time lasts, the greater chance of your baby developing a dry skin. This is why an emollient bath oil, Semsey Coconut Oil is necessary and should be added to bath water. Coconut oil have been suggested, as it contains oleic acid, which makes the skin more permeable. For coconut oil, it is safer that an organic, natural based variant is used, as opposed to a highly perfumed or processed one.
Moisturizers which are nature derived are recommended by experts to be used everyday. It is important that one without fragrances or dyes is opted for
to use as a routine application of after-bath moisturizer.
