Lotions are very important in maintaining a good and proper caring for your skin. It can help the skin to become hydrated and make a barricade to prevent and protect the skin from harmful elements.
It means that applying lotions to sensitive skin is very important and this also applies with our babies. But even so we know that we must use lotions on our babies, it is very hard to choose and decide on what kind of baby lotions to use. What may apply for the adults doesn’t mean that it may also be apply for our babies or kids’ sensitive skin. To begin with, we need to consider a few things in basic skin biology. Do not worry, it is not required for you to be an MD or an expert to understand it, but it somehow helps us in identifying the difference of the babies’ skin form the adult’s skin. The largest and biggest body organ in the human body is the skin and at the same time it is the body’s defenders and protectors from different elements that can harm the body. Our skin is composed of a complex connection of cells that can produce the body’s natural oils or is called natural moisturizing factor as well as blood vessels, collagen, immune cells, nerves and oil glands.
The skin’s job to protect the body is one of the most important work it has The skin is responsible for protecting the body by acting as a physical barrier and at the same time protects the body from losing water. There are many reasons that can accelerate the loss of water from our body’s skin and some of these reasons are the prolong exposure in the water like staying in a pool for many hours and also because of the diminishing natural oils from the skin or moisturizing factorIn contrary to what people have tried to believe, resting in a warm bath does not hydrate the body and the skin, instead, it does the opposite. Let’s remember that baby’s skin is different from the adult’s skin. The skin of a baby is thinner and more sensitive compare to adults.
It is important to take note of this as you decide what kind of product you will use in your baby. Do not make use of products that have unnecessary ingredients with it that have raised some concerns regarding safety. Also avoid products that have fragrance for it has the most common reasons of skin allergies most especially for the babies.
