Your baby’s skin is not only sensitive to the outdoor elements and temperatures but also to the products you use on his or her delicate skin. From diaper rash to chapped lips and cheeks, baby skin needs constant care and attention. When you use organic lotions, ointments, and treatments, you’re providing your baby with a healthy alternative to chemical-laden lotions that often contain a variety of preservatives that the skin absorbs.
To protect your baby’s skin, avoid lotions with added chemicals. Instead, use natural and organic products packed with nutrients, minerals, nourishment, and antioxidants.
Tips for keeping your baby’s skin moisturized and healthy during the cooler months:
Keep a moisturizing balm handy: Babies’ lips, cheeks, and nose are prime spots for chapping and redness during the winter months. Use a protective balm that works to fight the dry air, while calming your baby and adding moisture to his or her delicate skin.
One of our favorite baby balms is Erbaviva Organic Baby Lip & Cheek Balm, which can be used on the lips and cheeks. Infused with chamomile and natural antioxidants from rosemary extract, the Erbaviva balm works to comfort your baby with its soothing aroma and texture.
Cure Diaper Rash: When your baby gets diaper rash, immediately dispose of his or her diaper, and allow the baby’s bottom to air dry a bit. Apply a lotion that acts to both protect the baby’s skin from further irritation and soothe his or her discomfort.
We suggest Erbaviva Diaper Cream, which is an all-natural cream that works to protect skin and reduce redness, irritation, and pain. The echinacea in this lotion is one of the main active ingredients that works to comfort the baby and protect delicate skin.
Protect against UVA and UVB rays: Even in winter, the sun’s harsh rays can affect your baby’s skin. To prevent sun damage, apply a gentle sunscreen for sensitive skin to your baby’s face 15 minutes before taking him or her outside.
We suggest the extremely lightweight and effective Erbaviva Children’s & Adult’s Sunscreen with SPF 15. This sun lotion’s long-lasting protection puts your mind at rest when your baby is outdoors.
Bathing rituals: When bathing your baby, use warm / lukewarm water to ensure comfort. Rinse the baby with a mild and moisturizing soap that produces a creamy lather. We suggest Erbaviva Organic Baby Washbag which contains pure milk, honey, and essential lavender oils to add moisture to your baby’s skin. Within two minutes of taking your baby out of the tub, apply a moisturizer to prevent dry skin. Moisturizing a few moments after removing your baby from the tub is important because the warm water has opened his or her pores, enabling the moisturizer to fully absorb.
Try Erbaviva Organic Baby Cream, which nourishes the skin for hours and adds a comforting touch to your baby’s skin. Your baby will feel and smell clean and fresh for hours.
