Cold weather can be very stressful for a toddler’s skin, and you must be extra protective during this time of year. But it does not mean your baby needs to stay inside all the time. Just follow our tips to keep your baby’s skin safe, replenished, and refreshed.
- Moisturize regularly.
You need to choose a good baby safe cream. Moisturizer creates a protective layer on the skin which protects the baby from cold and wind. Cream should soothe, nourish, and hydrate the skin. It is important to choose products without alcohol and any perfumes because it can irritate and damage sensitive baby skin.
- Use sunscreen.
Usually, parents do not even think about using sunscreen in the winter. But sunscreen should be worn every day throughout the year. Babies before 6 months should be kept out of direct sunlight, after 6 months you can apply sunscreen on your baby skin every time you are outdoors. But still the time that you spent together outdoors should be limited. And use only baby safe sunscreen products.
- Dress smart.
Dress your baby in warm clothes during winter, do not forget about gloves, hat, and scarf to protect face, lips, and skin from frostbites. But do not overdress because if your baby gets hot, he will start sweating and sweating can irritate the skin. Plus, he can catch a cold.
- Use a humidifier at home.
Humidifiers are a must during the cold dry winter season. Humidifier in a baby’s room maintains moisture in the air and soothes dry baby skin, while healing the redness and irritations caused by the cold weather.
