Winter Skin Care Of Infant
Some part of the body such as face has to remain exposed. You can not cover it with any cloth or woolen garments because it will be hard to breathe. What will you do then?
How will you protect the skin of your child? Keep her skin under a strong shield of thick layer of cream. Here are few tips that may help you to keep your child’s skin petal soft and beautiful in winter also.
First of all you have to clean your child’s skin everyday. Use warm water to clean her skin. Again water helps to keep your baby’s skin hydrated. Do not use soap to clean the dirt and grease of the skin because soap removes natural oil and softness of your child’s skin. So instead of soap use plain milk to remove dirt.
Milk can enter into the deepest of the skin and removes dirt from the deep pore of the skin without removing the natural oil. You can do another thing. Take a table spoon of milk powder. Pour few drops of orange juice in it. Make a smooth paste and use this paste to remove dirt from your baby’s skin. After that wash the skin with plain water. Rub the skin with a soft and wet sponge very gently.
Massage baby cream after washing the skin. Give a thick coat of layer all over the body and especially on the exposed part of the body such as face, palm, etc. Massaging oil is very effective. It not only keeps the skin radiant but it also helps in the blood circulation.
So do not forget to massage oil everyday on their body. The ideal time to massage the body is at night before going to bed. Olive oil is excellent for this purpose. Other vitamin A and E rich baby oil will also do. Gently massage them and let them wear warm clothes after that.
If you follow these simple tips sincerely, your child will remain soft and supple like it remains in any other season. In spite of that if skin irritation happens consult the child specialist as soon as possible.
