Many times advertisements motivate us to get products which we don’t actually require. Baby-care products particularly fall into this class. Our skin was made to naturally wash. This is the function of sebum, a waxy/oily material generated by a skin.
Most infants don’t have to be washed with soap on a daily basis. As an alternative, you can create some chamomile tea, allow it to cool slightly and add this to your own bathwater. Chamomile soothes and hydrates skin and protects against fungal and bacterial disease.
Both of those ‘cleansers’ are especially good if your infant (or child) has some sort of rashes or eczema. In Terms of moisturizer, It’s only needed if infant’s skin looks dry then you can simply use a small amount of a light oil such as almond oil.
Older kids do get somewhat grubbier and frequently desire a soap wash, but again not automatically if they’ve only been indoors all day. If they’re not visibly dirty then only a freshen up with water is good. Harsh soaps, compound antibacterial cleansers, and compound shower gels disturb our skin’s natural oils and acid mantle.
It’s great to try to maintain your skin’s natural oils and acid as dry as you possibly can for as long as possible since they supply natural protection. Consider using gentle soaps made from organic ingredients and instruct kids to just use soap where they’re filthy.
Once kids hit their teens they might have to begin using specially designed skincare products due to their own face (and rear) as adolescent skin problems like acne start to arise. The vital issue to consider now would be to see to the skin softly!
