(Video) How to Moisturize Baby Sensitive Skin

This is the fourth of baby skincare series, focusing on shower. The previous three videos were on Common Baby Rash I Sun Protection for Kids I How to Shower Baby. I NEED YOUR SUPPORT, do subscribe to my EczemaBlues channel here. As I’m just starting out, and camera-shy, the video is my voice over slides that I prepared. Do share your comments pleeease on how I can improve them.

Firstly, for babies with normal skin, it may not be that critical to moisturize (but good practice since baby’s skin is thinner and more susceptible to moisture loss). However, for babies with dry skin or eczema, moisturizing has been studied to reduce the need for topical medication and lessen the severity of eczema.

Many parents ask what is the best moisturizer to buy? In short, there isn’t a best one in terms of formulation but one that your child likes and within your budget to use generously. The functions of  moisturizer deal with maximizing moisture for the skin while acting as additional protective layer. Choosing a moisturizer that is without the top irritants is a wiser purchase than starting with the cheapest (and leading to irritated skin).

How to moisturize is also covered in the video, and the main thing to remember is always right after shower. For expert tips on reading skincare product label and moisturizing, click on the links.

Do watch the video for more details and as always, appreciate you sharing your experience, thank you!
