Tips to Keep your Baby’s Skin Healthy

Can you just imagine how cute will your baby look while smiling back at you and laughing at any move you might make? Well, this won’t be the case if your baby feels irritated by any kind of skin problems. Many babies are prone to skin irritation especially during their first year. Hence to ensure keeping your baby’s skin healthy and let them enjoy every moment, here’s what you can do:

Avoid keeping your baby’s wet diaper for long

Make sure you change your baby’s diaper as soon as it gets wet and clean their skin with gentle wipes like NIVEA BABY Fresh & Pure Wipes. The Fresh & Pure Wipes are as gentle as pure water and are free of alcohol, paraben, and colorant, making it safe for your baby's delicate skin.

Use a gentle laundry detergent

Wash your baby’s clothes, bedding, blankets, towels, and anything that touches their skin with a gentle detergent to cut down on the possibility of irritation and allergy.

Protect your baby’s skin

Because any negative external influences might irritate your little one’s skin, make sure you protect it by applying creams with no alcohol, paraben, nor colorant. Choose the product that protects and supports your infant’s natural skin barrier, such as NIVEA BABY My First Cream All Purpose Cream that has been developed with natural almond and sunflower oil and can be used on your baby's body, face and bottom.

Avoid long soak showers

If your baby really enjoys baths and playing with water, avoid letting them soak for long in soapy water because this might dry out their skin. After the bath, apply a protective moisturizer like NIVEA BABY Mild Touch Moisturizing Lotion that strengthens baby's skin barrier while keeping it moisturized.
