Skin Care in Babies and Its Importance
From the newborn period, babies need skin care. Skin care in babies is very important for the sensitive and delicate skin of babies. Skin care in newborn babies should be done very sensitively and carefully. Since babies' skin is sensitive, care creams suitable for their skin should be used. Moisturizing and caring for the baby's skin and massaging with care oils relaxes the baby and helps him sleep comfortably. With the right creams, the feeling of discomfort on the skin can be reduced and the skin can be soothed. Don't worry about your baby's diaper rash, skin dryness and minor roughnesses on his body. Thanks to the correct skin care routines for newborn babies, all of them can be controlled.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You should definitely consult your doctor for creams or medications to be used for your baby's skin care. The biggest reason for this is baby skin is extremely sensitive and susceptible to allergies. Doctor's referral is very important for your baby's health. Ingredients such as olive oil and rose water can cause sensitivity on your baby's skin. Make sure that the skin care products you will use for your baby are dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic.
Newborn babies' skin is usually dry and sensitive. The reason for this is that the baby is in water in the womb and the skin dries quickly due to the change in the environment when it goes out. Don't worry if your baby's skin is dry. Babies have very thin and sensitive skin compared to adults. Since thin skin does not have the ability to retain moisture, it cannot prepare a sufficient environment for the skin to be moisturized. Therefore, it is very normal for the skin to be sensitive after bathing. Water-based, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic products should be preferred in the skin care of newborn babies.
After your baby is three months old, it is recommended to take a bath every evening. Since they are in water for nine months in the womb, bathing babies who are accustomed to water every day relaxes them and allows them to sleep well. Take care to wash your baby with warm water as much as possible, as hot water causes the skin to dry out more. Do not forget to moisturize your skin after the bath. After the bath, you should apply moisturizers and creams after drying with a towel. You can relax your baby by giving a small massage. Do not forget to protect your baby from the sun by applying sunscreen all over your baby's body, especially before going out in the summer. We recommend using sunscreen not only in summer but also in winter. The important thing here is that after you come home, you should bath your baby and remove the sunscreen from his body. When choosing clothes for the baby, choose 100% cotton, linen or silk fabrics. Woolen overalls or woolen clothes can cause itching in babies. If you have to dress it, you should put a cotton undershirt inside.
Rashes, skin rashes and itching are common conditions in babies. To reduce these, you should definitely moisturize your baby's skin. It is very important to use creams with moisturizing properties, especially during diaper changes. For the health of babies, you should be careful that there is no alcohol in the wet wipes used during the day. Before your baby sleeps in the evening, you should apply moisturizer to the areas where you use wet wipes. For baby's health, if possible, clean your baby with only cotton and water.
