Your Baby’s Skin Needs the Best!

Motherhood is bliss, but it isn’t always a joyful ride; especially for first-time moms. While there are times when parents are concerned about their baby’s health and nourishment, choosing mild products for their delicate skin may also seem like a herculean task.


HIMALAYA BabyCare products are researched and developed to help nourish and protect baby’s sensitive skin, which is susceptible to flakiness, diaper rashes, and microbial infections. They are clinically tested to ensure safety and efficacy and are the preferred choice of parents, not only for their babies but also gifting. Two amazing gift options - the 5-in-1 and 7-in-1 HAPPY BABY GIFT PACKS cover all the essentials for baby’s skin care routine and are also value for money.


A skin care routine is the best way to ensure that your baby’s skin is protected from all the external factors that can harm baby's skin. A skin care routine like the one mentioned below, using the right baby products, helps ensure baby’s skin is cared for.


Pre-Bath Routine

 

Changing & Cleansing

 

 


Before every diaper change, it is a good practice to clean baby’s bottom using alcohol-free HIMALAYA GENTLE BABY WIPES enriched with Aloe Vera and Indian Lotus. While Aloe Vera helps moisturize and soothe baby’s skin, Indian Lotus helps keep baby’s skin soft and supple. These pH-balanced and alcohol-free wipes are specially designed for protecting baby’s bottom.

 

 


Massaging


Massages make babies feel connected and secure with parents. HIMALAYA BABY MASSAGE OIL with Winter Cherry helps soothe baby’s skin. Also enriched with Olive Oil, it helps nourish and protect baby’s skin.


Bath Routine

 

In India and several other countries, babies are given a bath on the first day. But in practice, hospitals may give a quick bath to clean baby soon after birth. WHO recommends delaying the first bath until at least 24 hours after birth. Here are some basic tips to bathe a newborn baby:

 

  • Keep the room temperature warm
  • Keep all the essentials like towel, soap, shampoo, massage oil, and clothes ready
  • Lay baby down on a mat or in an infant bathtub
  • Always take help if required, especially the first time
  • Support baby’s neck in your hand, supporting the back of his neck between your index and middle finger and your palm supporting the back and bottom

 

 

 

  • Using your hand, scoop warm water onto your baby’s body slowly, ensuring that he is always warm. Lather HIMALAYA GENTLE BABY SOAP on a soft cloth and in a mild circular motion, apply the soap on baby’s body. Containing Almond Oil, HIMALAYA GENTLE BABY SOAP helps moisturize baby’s skin, and the Olive Oil in this soap helps nourish, protect, and soften skin.

 

 

  • When shampooing baby’s hair, use HIMALAYA GENTLE BABY SHAMPOO with no tears formulation, which is enriched with the goodness of Chickpea and Hibiscus. While Chickpea helps nourish the hair, Hibiscus helps moisturize and condition baby’s hair.
  • Massage the shampoo gently and then pour water very slowly from forehead towards the back.

 

Post-Bath Routine

 

 

Wrap baby in a warm towel and dry gently. Apply a generous amount of HIMALAYA BABY LOTION to keep baby’s skin soft and moisturized. Enriched with the goodness of Almond Oil, HIMALAYA BABY LOTION helps keep baby’s skin moisturized and Olive Oil, with antioxidant properties, helps protect skin.

 


Applying HIMALAYA BABY POWDER, infused with herbal ingredients like Vetiver, helps manage excessive sweating and keeps baby’s skin cool and fresh.

 

 

HIMALAYA BABY CREAM is another option to not only protect and moisturize baby’s dry skin but is also formulated specially to protect baby’s chapped cheeks, 'crawler's knee', tender nose, and rubbed elbows. The goodness of Country Mallow in the cream, with its antioxidant properties, helps protect baby’s skin, and Olive Oil helps protect and nourish skin.

 

 

Once baby's skin is moisturized, it is time to put on the diaper. Before you do so, apply a thin layer of HIMALAYA DIAPER RASH CREAM to help promote healing and soothing of red, irritated skin, as it forms a protective layer on baby’s skin. Infused with the goodness of Yashada Bhasma in HIMALAYA DIAPER RASH CREAM helps protect the skin from infections, reduce inflammation, and heal diaper rash, and Aloe Vera helps soothe and accelerate the healing of baby’s skin.
Lastly, dress your baby in soft and comfy clothing as baby prepares to take a much-needed feed and nap. A good skin care routine with the right baby care products is the best way to nurture and nourish your baby’s skin and health.
