How to choose the right baby protection cream?
New Delhi, August 10 (IANSlife): When it comes to shopping for care products for your baby, you may find yourself lost in the aisles, surrounded by a plethora of options and not sure which one to choose. Although there are many options for adults, the skin care needs of a newborn are different from those of an adult. Choosing the best products for your newborn’s delicate skin is essential, and Dr Praveen Makhija, Child Specialist and Neonatologist, Delhi, has compiled a list of factors to consider when selecting creams baby protection on behalf of Cetaphil Baby.
Longer lasting hydration
It is essential to keep your baby’s skin hydrated in order to keep it tender. Applying moisturizers regularly can be a tedious task for you and may not be comfortable for your baby. Shea Butter is known for its long-lasting moisturizing power, resulting in nourished skin for your baby. It helps soften and smooth dry skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory properties which can help in the treatment of skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis (dry skin), which is quite common in children.
Retain moisture and nourish
Hydration not only benefits baby’s health, it also nourishes their skin. Due to increased dryness and temperature changes, the skin of newborn babies can become inflamed and irritated. Calendula is well known for its calming and healing properties. It hydrates and nourishes the skin’s moisture barrier, leaving your baby’s skin soft and supple. Calendula has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties, making it a viable option for the relief of irritated or irritated skin.
Organic ingredients and vitamins
With increasing environmental stress, it’s more important than ever to use products that are gentle on your baby’s skin. Parabens, mineral oils, and soaps can damage the natural texture of a newborn’s skin, leading to a host of unwanted skin infections such as irritation, chafing, and rashes. Vitamins are a miracle for a baby’s skin because they are necessary for optimal growth, but they also contribute to his care routine by reducing redness. Vitamins E and B5 are two essential vitamins to look for in produce. These moisturize your baby’s skin and reduce irritation and discomfort, even on extremely dry and irritated skin.
Sensitive skin care
Babies’ skin is more sensitive by nature than that of older children or adults. Glycerin helps form a protective barrier on the surface of the skin. Some babies’ skin is more sensitive than others, causing pain, itching or irritation. The antibacterial properties of glycerin help prevent dermatitis and the progression of skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema in babies.
