Winter's dry air & dampness can wreak havoc on your child's skin. Time to take action!
Ensure your child stays well-hydrated during winter by encouraging them to drink plenty of water.
Hydration is Key
Choose a mild, moisturizing cleanser for your child's skin. Harsh soaps can strip away natural oils, leaving the skin dry and prone to irritation.
Use a Gentle Cleanser
Keep baths and showers short, and use lukewarm water instead of hot water. Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness.
Limit Bath Time
Apply a hypoallergenic and fragrance-free moisturizer to your child's skin immediately after bathing. This helps lock in moisture and prevents dryness.
Dress your child in layers to protect them from the cold. Use breathable fabrics like cotton, and avoid materials that can irritate the skin. Don't forget to cover hands, feet, and ears in extreme cold.
Choose the Right Clothing
Use a humidifier in your child's room to add moisture to the air. This helps prevent dry skin caused by the heating systems commonly used in winter.
Humidify the Indoor Environment
Ensure your child engages in outdoor activities, but make sure they are properly dressed for the weather.
