7 Tips to Protect Your Baby's Skin in the Cold Winter Months

During winter, our skin tends to become dry and prone to itching and prone to irritation. So we adopt a special winter skincare routine to take care of our skin needs.
But a baby's skin is even more delicate and sensitive to weather changes than ours. The harsh, cold winds and low humidity levels can make their soft, supple skin turn dry. So as a parent, you need to pay extra attention to their skincare needs during winter.


Skin Problems That Your Baby May Face During Winter

  • Dry skin:
    During winter, the humidity levels in the environment tend to drop drastically which leads to dry, flaky skin. The cold weather also tends to worsen eczema flare-ups due to low moisture levels in the skin.
  • Diaper rash:
    We usually wrap babies in layers of clothes to keep them warm and comfortable. But this may also increase their discomfort and risk of diaper rashes to trapped moisture.
  • Redness:
    When exposed to cold temperatures, the baby’s cheeks or other exposed areas of skin often turn red due to inflammation. So using soothing, moisturizing products before going out is essential.
  • Chapped lips:
    The absence of oil glands in our lips makes them more prone to dryness, chapping and even cracks. So lips need to be protected well to keep the moist and healthy.

What Product To Use Or Avoid

There are a lot of baby products available in the market, but it's best to pick formulations that help nourish and protect your baby’s skin without causing irritations.
Organic baby products are thus a great choice as they are made with organic oils and butters that moisturise, nourish, soothe and protect skin in the safest, gentlest way possible. They do not contain artificial fragrances, colours or other ingredients that prove to be too harsh for their skin. Organic baby products are also safe for babies with extremely sensitive or eczema-prone skin.


Tips To Protect Your Baby's Skin

  • Reduce Bath Time:
    To avoid the skin from getting dry due to baths, it's best to reduce bath frequency, especially before bedtime. Hot water baths are best avoided as well. Do a quick bath with lukewarm water instead to avoid moisture loss.
  • Pick Gentle Cleansers:
    Make sure you're using a body wash or soap that is gentle and hydrating enough for your baby’s skin. Organic products are the perfect choice since they are made with nourishing plant oils and butters that replenish moisture levels.
  • Moisturise Well:
    Use a nourishing massage oil every day right after showering to prevent dryness and protect their delicate skin from cold weather. The fatty acids in the oil will help replenish moisture and even boost blood circulation.
  • Use A Humidifier:
    If your baby’s skin gets extremely dry during winter, use a humidifier indoors. It helps reduce skin dryness by increasing moisture levels in the room.
  • Nourish With Body Butter:
    For extra protection against dry winds, use body butter to deeply moisturise your baby’s skin and keep it soft and supple throughout the day. The plant butter and soothing botanicals in organic boy butter will also help deal with eczema and dermatitis.
  • Wear Protective Clothing:
    To minimize contact with cold winds, make sure your baby is dressed in full-sleeved clothing. Make sure the fabric is soft and breathable to avoid irritation
  • Use The Right Cleansing Products:
    Regular laundry detergents usually contain fragrances which may irritate your baby’s delicate skin. So wash all their linens separately sign a non-toxic, odour and gentle liquid detergent.
