The skin on newborns is super fine and fragile, so it requires special attention. To help you make the right choices, we’ve answered five common questions about skincare for babies.
The skin of a baby is immature, which means that...
Delicate skin requires gentle care
To protect your baby's skin fully, choose unscented, hypoallergenic products that have a neutral pH. You’ll also want to avoid preservatives like parabens, alcohol and phenoxyethanol, and avoid products with sulfates and phthalates.
Because a baby’s skin doesn’t produce sebum, it tends to dry out more easily. So, it’s vital that you keep it well moisturized. One good way is to apply a gentle cream to your child’s skin when it’s still wet, after every wash; and repeat the gesture several times a day as needed.
What to do if your baby has dry skin?If your baby's skin dries out, peels or cracks, check that the air in the baby’s room isn’t too dry and avoid using traditional soaps. Simply wash your little one with water, then apply moisturizing cream or lotion to the dry areas. If in doubt, don’t hesitate to consult your doctor or pharmacist.
Water can dry out a baby’s skin, especially when it contains high levels of lime. Because of that, you’ll want to limit bathing to two or three times a week during the first few weeks of life. And even when you do bathe, try to keep it to 15 minutes or less. On other days, simply wipe your baby with a gentle washcloth using lukewarm water; water that’s too hot can also dry out baby’s skin.
Instead of regular soap, use one that’s mild and pH-neutral, created especially for newborns; ideally, one that’s rich in fatty substances or moisturizing ingredients. Soaps that come in bottles with dispenser pumps are practical because they’re easy to handle and offer good protection against the intrusion of bacteria.
As soon as you’ve bathed your baby, make sure to rinse their skin well, including inside the wrinkles and folds, as formula residue could cause itching. Then, to dry them off, use a soft towel to wipe or dab gently without rubbing.
A baby’s inability to produce melanin makes it particularly sensitive to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. So, before the age of one, pediatricians recommend that babies avoid all exposure to the sun, even indirect. However, if you’re out in sunny place, make sure you take a few simple precautions: dress your child in light, comfortable clothes, covering arms and legs completely, and make sure your child has a wide-brimmed hat to protect its face. Also, try to spend as much time as possible in the shade, especially between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., when the sun’s rays are strongest.
