Posted by Maria on 12/21/2013
There are different ways that you have as a parent to keep your baby's skin smooth. This is very important, as your baby's skin chafes and becomes irritated easily. Through the usage of natural lotions, moisturizers and different massage techniques, you can keep your baby very comfortable throughout the day.
The first thing that you must take into consideration is the health of your baby's skin. Use lotions and oils that are hypoallergenic to limit abrasion and irritation. Aloe vera is one of the best oils to use to keep your baby's skin smooth. This herb comes in oil and gel form and creates a protective barrier on your baby's skin to block external contaminants.
Vitamin E oil is another alternative that you can use on your baby's skin. Vitamin E reduces dryness and peeling and serves as an antioxidant to get rid of both external and internal toxins, and it creates a beautiful glow on the surface of the skin.
One of the ways that you can aid in the softness of your baby's skin is by gently massaging the surface to improve blood circulation and keep the skin warm and lively. Schedule the massage after bathing for optimal results.
Your baby's skin is its largest organ and one that cannot be ignored. Through the use of gels, natural vitamins and massages, you can keep your baby feeling comfortable and happy. Make sure that your child is not in the sun for long periods of time, and implement these techniques weekly.
