Baby Skin Care Techniques You Should Know

Author : Andre Contado

Many parents assume that they do not need to do anything to keep their baby's skin clean and healthy. They just assume that babies are better able to fight off acne and skin problems than adults. After all, how many skin problems can a baby have if it hasn't yet hit puberty? The truth is that a baby's skin does need special care to stay clear and healthy.

This is why you need to establish a regular skin care routine as soon as your baby is born. Preparing your child for proper skin care as an adult involves starting a regular skin care routine early on in life and teaching your child that skin care is important. Here are some hints to help you put together a good skin care routine.

Would it surprise you to learn that you don't need to give your infant a bath every night? Most infants don't get very dirty early on in life. They stay so clean because they cannot move around on their own. This means that parents can keep an eye out for things that will get the baby dirty or that could harm the baby's skin. While your baby is still considered a "newborn" he or she only needs to be given a bath twice a week or so (as long as you keep his or her face free of dirt). When babies learn to crawl and walk, however, you need to give them baths more frequent.

When you shop for baby skin care products read the ingredients carefully. You shouldn't buy products that contain added fragrances, dyes, parabens or phthalates. All of these ingredients irritate infant skin and can cause rashes or other skin conditions. After all, the last thing you want to do is accidentally cause a skin condition to develop after taking so much care to keep your baby's skin clean. Choose skin care products that won't irritate your baby's skin. If you want to be very careful, before you go shopping again, ask your pediatrician for some suggestions.

During the first six months of your baby's life you want to do everything you can to keep him or her out of direct sunlight because direct sunlight can prove too harsh for your baby's skin, which will be very sensitive to light. Once your child is six months old you will want to begin using an incredibly strong and baby friendly sunblock to protect them when you take them outside.

Hats and umbrellas are also good at protecting your baby against sunlight. If your son or daughter does develop a sunburn (even with all of the precautions you have taken) you can treat it with a damp cool cloth a few times a day.

There are a lot of different ways to take care of your infant's skin. The truth is that baby skin care does not need to be complicated or difficult. If you buy the right baby skin care products and use your good judgment, your baby's skin should be relatively problem-free. Don't forget that you need to keep all of the skin on your baby's body healthy and clean--the face is just one small part of his body! Keeping your baby's skin clear, clean and healthy requires you to be vigilant all day long but don't let that scare you! Before you know what has happened, keeping your daughter's skin clean and clear will feel like a habit. Before long you won't think about it at all. It will be second nature!
