Our children are like rays of sun that beam into our lives. Having a child is not only just a major event in any parent’s life; it is also one of the happiest. The memories and joys children can bring to you are immense and create a feeling inside your heart that you have never felt before. That is what makes taking care of your children all the more important.
Babies are known for their smooth and soft skin, hence the phrase ‘smooth as a baby’s bum’ but sometimes despite everything we do, things just don’t run by the book. This can be painful, frustrating and wearisome for all involved. So what do you do when things go a little pear-shaped? Here’s four ingredients that you’ll want to include in your baby skin care products to not only keep your children’s skin soft but to also promote their overall health and wellbeing.

What are the magic four ingredients in skin care?

Aloe Vera

is the most renowned skin care ingredient in the world-not only is it a powerful element for you, but also for your child. Its chemical properties act as a moisturizer, anti-inflammatory, infection-fighter and can reduce itchiness, improve elasticity, circulation and cellular turnover; keeping your baby’s skin radiating, smooth and soft. This is especially important during the winter months, when the dry air can be conducive to anyone’s skin and lead to dry and itchy patches. Such dryness can disrupt your child’s sleep-as well as your own.

Sea Buckthorn

is one of the most ancient oils known to mankind. Since the days of the ancient Greeks, mothers have been using this oil on their children to promote skin hydration. It not only hydrates the skin, it ensures proper regeneration and elasticity, which is ideal for kids because we all know how fast they grow!

Jojoba Oil

is lesser known, but its affects are famous throughout the world. Although it is more a form of wax, this ingredient contains the vitamins A, D and E which are known as the vitamins responsible for healing the skin. Jojoba penetrates beyond the epidermis layer (top layer) carrying these essential nutrients to rejuvenate skin cells and repair damaged skin tissue. Jojoba is naturally antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic making it a perfect gentle ingredient for calming several skin irritations.

Green Tea

is not just great for drinking. It is great on your child’s skin as well. For any parent looking to take their child out on daily walks in the sun, applying green tea to their skin is especially important. Green Tea acts as a blocker to harmful UV rays. Over exposure to UV rays can lead to sunburn, premature aging, eye and skin damage that can lead to skin cancer. Sunscreens can be expensive, cause reddening of the skin and might never seem to work, this is where Green Tea comes in as the best and organically healthy solution.
