Babies and children can get dry skin just like adults. Because babies and children's skin are more delicate, their skin is susceptible to becoming dry with everyday use of cleansing products, as well as, their environment. Cold, dry outdoor air and indoor heating can rob skin of its natural oils and moisture in the winter. Some children are prone to dry skin, during the summer months and develop patches on their skin because the summer sun, air conditioning, salt water, and chlorine in pool water can cause a flare up in dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Additionally, it is important to decrease bath time. Long periods of bathing dries a child's skin because it removes the skin's natural oils associated with daily cleansing. Apply an emollient penetrating skin moisturizer, like the Mena Body Moisturizer, after bathing to help seal in moisture protection. It is made with organic Lemongrass and it helps to soothe skin and maintain the natural oil glands. Are you looking for added protection?
