How To Take Care Of Your Baby’s Sensitive Skin

May 17, 2017

Does your little one have sensitive skin? I know first hand how stressful it can be when you’re trying everything to treat it and nothing seems to be working.  I’ve partnered with Ivory Soap in my latest YouTube video to bring you my mommy tips on how to treat your little ones sensitive skin.  Check out the video above for my tips and to watch my little ones in action.

Short on Time? I’ve broken down the tips for you below.

Tip 1 – Bathe With Cool – Lukewarm Water

While a hot bath always seems more inviting, that warmer water will strip those natural oils even faster.  When you do give your child a bath or shower, especially if you must do it daily, keep the water temperature as lukewarm as your child can stand.   

Tip 2 – Skip A Bath If You Can

Baths strip the body of natural oils, leaving skin dry and unprotected.  Cutting down the number of baths your child takes per week, limiting them to 3-4 instead of daily, can allow her skin more time to build up its natural defenses.  Of course kids will be kids, and obviously whether this is feasible will depend a lot on your child and how dirty they get on a daily basis!

Tip 3 – Bathe With Ivory

When your child has sensitive skin you need to avoid harsh soaps or scented bubble baths.  Ivory products are 99.44% pure and clean, free of dyes and heavy perfumes, no parabens, and they are pH balanced.  The rich refreshing lather rinses clean, leaving skin smooth and hydrated compared to regular soap.  Ivory Original Bar soap Soap can also help with bug bites as we move further into the spring and summer.  For more information on Ivory products visit them on FaceBook  and Instagram.

    My grandma when she was alive would only use Ivory. If we bought her anything else she refused to use it.

    Less baths really helped my baby’s winter dry skin, that is a great tip! We usually did baths every night because he loved them but once we stopped it really helped. Having a gentle soap is key too!

    When I was a kid, I was allergic to most soaps – causing me severe eczema. I’ve since outgrown that, but I do remember that Ivory was one of the few I could use.

    Yes – just because a hot bath seems inviting for us doesn’t mean it’s awesome for your little one’s sensitive skin. Thanks for sharing these useful tips.

    These are really great tips. You’re so right about how bathing often dries out the skin. We used Ivory growing up. It was the only soap my mom would buy.
