In taking good care for your skin, using a lotion is a necessity. It can help the skin to become hydrated and make a barricade to prevent and protect the skin from harmful elements.
The same as in our babies, rubbing lotions to their sensitive skin is an important thing to do. Despite the fact that we already knew that lotions are very important on our babies skins, it is still hard to decide what kind of baby lotions we should use. Sometimes what may work for us adults may not apply for our babies specially they have sensitive skins. To start, we have to bear in mind how to provide a few important details of basic skin biology. Do not be bother, you don’t have to be an expert on this kind of biology to understand the nature of it, but it also gives us a little knowledge on how to differentiate adult’s skin from babies’ 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. The human skin is made up of a closed network or groups of cells that is responsible in producing the body’s natural moisturizing factor or sometimes called natural body oils as well as the nerves, blood vessels, collagen, oil glands and the immune cells.
As what was discussed, to protect the body is one of the important works of the skin. The skin protects the body as it acts as the body’s barrier and defense and also it keeps our body from water loss. Lot of things that can be the reasons of increase water loss from our skin and body are too much water exposure like for example staying in a pool for long hours and also because of the reduction of the body’s natural oils produce by the skin or what is called natural moisturizing factor. Contrary to what many people traditionally believe, staying in a warm bubble wash cannot make our skin and body hydrated- it dehydrates it out. Let’s remember that baby’s skin is different from the adult’s skin. A baby’s skin is less thick and is more sensitive than 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. Another thing to avoid are products with a fragrance because fragrance causes skin allergies and may harm the baby’s skin.
