Children’s skin is more sensitive and delicate than adult skin, making it more vulnerable to dryness and irritation during seasonal change and the drop in temperature. Keep your little one’s skin kissably soft this autumn and winter with our simple skincare strategies for the colder months.
Look for gentle care
Choose a gentle, moisturising body wash when the air turns nippy. Childs Farm hair and body washes contain argan oil for the ultimate in moisturising, leaving hair shiny and tangle-free and skin wonderfully soft and nourished. Gently fragranced with organic fruit extracts, these double-duty skin heroes make cleaning off dirt a joy during those gloomy winter nights – and are kind to the most sensitive of skin too!
It might be tempting to crank up the heat and hot water in autumn and winter, but to keep your baby’s skin as protected as possible, opt for a lukewarm shower or bath – extra hot water saps the skin of its natural oils leading to dryness and heightened sensitivity. The longer your little one is in the water, the longer that process lasts. Instead, opt for shorter showers and baths which are kinder to the skin.
Lock in moisture
When bath time is finished, make sure to pat your baby or toddler with a soft towel, avoiding harsh rubbing. Then lock in the hydration on the surface of their skin by applying moisturiser while it is still slightly damp.
