Baby Skin Care Guide
Your baby’s skin is not just amazingly soft, it is also a unique and essential shield that offers protection from the outside world.
Your baby’s skin plays an important role in maintaining his health and in defending against irritants, germs and bacteria. Skin also regulates your baby's internal temperature and is a tool for exploring his world through touch.
Your baby’s skin is different than adult skin. It may look perfect, but it is very delicate so it needs extra special care throughout the first years of life. Compared to adult’s skin, baby’s skin:
- Is about 30% thinner
- Has a greater tendency for dryness
- Is more prone to allergies and irritation
- Absorbs more water, but loses it faster
Because it is more delicate, baby’s skin needs more protection from environmental changes and harsh cleansers. So when caring for your little one, use mild and gentle cleansers and moisturizers that are developed especially for baby like JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE® baby wash and JOHNSON’S® baby lotion.
Whether you're bathing your baby's skin or applying a moisturizer, you're doing more than helping to keep his skin healthy. With your gentle hand, you're also forming a special bond with your baby through the power of your touch.
As your baby grows he’ll start to explore —
and you may need to wash his face and hands more often. Try a cleanser that gently restores moisture to your baby’s skin. JOHNSON'S® HEAD-TO-TOE® baby wash gently cleanses, leaving your baby’s skin touchably soft.
