If there’s one topic I have come to know a lot about over the last five years it’s how to keep your kids skin moisturized.
When my first son was born, he quickly developed a severe eczema problem all over his body. The little guy would scream all night long because his skin was in so much pain. We took him from doctor to doctor and tried countless creams, oils and various ointments to try and bring his body some relief.
It wasn’t until we finally saw a dermatologist around the age of six months old that everything finally started to change for the better! She prescribed a whole slew of treatments and things to do to improve the condition of his skin.
The one thing that she told us that we needed to do was to use cream as a protective barrier, after his baths. One of the creams that she recommended was Cetaphil. Lathering this on when the skin was still moist from the bath would ensure that all that moisture would stay trapped into the skin with this barrier cream.
Fast forward five years, and not only do we still have this same regiment with our oldest son, we have continued to do this with our youngest son too. While he doesn’t have eczema like our other son does, he is still prone to various dry spots on his body. So rather than let it progress, we just make sure that his skin is always lathered up and moisturized after his bath.
Because we are long-time Cetaphil users, I was so excited to see this line of baby products released, specifically designed to help restore that moisture barrier and soothe your baby’s delicate skin. All of their products are made with organic calendula, which is a natural extract from the marigold flower. The moisturizers also contain sunflower and sweet almond oils, which help restore the skin’s moisture.
Cetaphil Baby’s line of skincare products include Wash & Shampoo, Body Wash, Daily Moisturizer and Moisturizing Oil. These products are all free of parabens, colourants and mineral oil. They are all hypoallergenic and pH balanced. And as I mentioned above, they are (tested) and recommended by dermatologists and pediatricians alike.
We will likely have to continue to use barrier creams in our home for years to come. And now I’m even more excited to be able to add these Cetaphil Baby products into the routine for all my kids, even though they aren’t technically babies anymore!
Keeping your baby’s skin moisturized is so important to their overall health and happiness. Make sure to check out this line of Cetaphil Baby products and feel confident knowing that their skin will be well taken care of!
