Tips & Tricks for Baby Skin Care

by Harleen Kaur Content Writing

To take proper care of the skin of babies, parents should do massaging, dress babies in cotton clothes and keep the exposure to sun minimum.


The skin of babies is sensitive and thinner as compared to the skin of adults and grown up babies. The skin is susceptible to environmental changes like humidity and temperature changes. All the changes combined can make the skin prone to allergies, infections, rashes and irritants. The first and foremost step to follow in keeping the skin healthy is to keep it moisturized and hydrated all the time. At the same time, parents should avoid using chemical-based products since these can trigger allergies.



Giving a bath to a newborn baby is not the ideal thing to do. Sponge the baby during the first few weeks with special attention being given to the diaper area and the mouth. The skin of newborn babies is coated with wax-like matter which starts peeling off after a few weeks from birth which should be taken care of through sponging and not applying creams.



Avoid using perfumed powders as these can cause skin problems. Using a talcum powder after giving a bath to the baby helps because it does not irritate the skin of babies. If the baby is air-dried after giving the bath, then there is no need of applying powder.



Massaging helps the mother-baby bond becomes stronger. Using natural oils like coconut oil, almond oil and olive oil for massaging the skin of babies helps in nourishing and moisturizing it. Using commercial oils is not suggested as it can cause reactions on the skin of babies.


     Cotton clothes:

Babies can develop rashes on the skin because of heat and sweating. Dressing up your baby in soft, sweat absorbent and comfortable clothing can prevent the occurrence of allergic reactions.

     Use Authentic Baby-Care Products

It is normal for babies to start feeling allergic to certain skin products. Choosing fragrance-free and tear-free shampoos and natural gels and lotions will preserve the natural skin of babies and avoid rashes. Keeping the baby’s skin moisturized for long is also suggested. Using baby soaps will keep the baby’s skin soft and is better than using perfumed or deodorant sprays.


     Protecting from diaper rash

Diaper rashes are caused because of reasons like irritation from the stool/urine, sensitivity of the skin and tightness of the diaper. To avoid rashes from occurring frequently, parents should make sure the diapers are kept clean and dry throughout. Using baby wipes before changing the diaper will help in keeping the skin protected from unseen germs and bacteria.


Baby wipes are a very useful product which makes the diapering experience altogether better. The usage of wipes keeps the bottom cleaner, softer and prevents the occurrence of a foul smell. Price of baby wipes is not that expensive and parents can purchase it without thinking twice. To get the best price for baby wipes, compare the online and offline prices and then decide from which platform to purchase.


Parents will be able to get the best price of baby wipes as the product is available on discounted prices. There are several ecommerce websites which have the best of brands listed at discounted prices. Buy baby wipes to make bottom cleaning a simple task and to make the skin of babies free from enzymes.


     Exposure to sun:

Babies have a fragile skin which should not be exposed to the sun as that might result in sunburn. A newborn baby should be covered with long sleeved clothes, full pants and a cap to stop from exposure to the sun.
