My daughter, like me, has very dry skin of the body. Yes, it is the body, because on my face the skin of the combined type. During the heating season and the abundance of clothes, we are suffering from dryness with the baby. Below is a small review of the means and methods of struggle tested by me.
Yes, there are more serious cases when the doctor makes a diagnosis of atopic dermatitis, but the daughter’s situation was not so serious. Apparently, it was just a reaction to clothes and dry air, which passed with age.
Maybe someone has baby oil and retains 10 times more moisture on the skin, but not the daughter. I have tried Chicco, Sanosan, Johnson Johnson oils, as well as oils of grape, peach and apricot kernels, and even ordinary olive oil.
Unfortunately, the result has disappointed me – except fat traces of oil does nothing. It is more or less easy to apply oils to the skin, but it takes them very long to absorb, and it is impossible to explain to a small child that they need to stand for a while without moving and not touching anything.
The most budget, but, unfortunately, not very effective option. Is that if you use the whole tube for a single moisturizing and nutrition of the child. I tried different means – Little Red Riding Hood, Antoshka, Flower-seven-color flower, Leopold the Cat, Alenka, Children’s vitaminized, I don’t remember everything already.
Their common drawback – fat, which contributes to the difficulty of application and long-term absorption. The amount of cream applied is directly proportional to the effect – the more you smear, the better the skin condition.
Imported baby cream
A good option for Chicco is a large bottle (750ml) with a dispenser. Moisturizes more or less, the smell is pleasant, but after a few hours there is a need to re-moisturize.
My acquaintance with the firm Bubchen ended before it began – I broke my nail on the uncomfortable bottle cap. The effect prevented the enjoyment of the pain of the skin under the nail. However, there was no special moisturizing and nourishment, as indicated on the packaging, except that I was pleased with the pleasant smell and fast absorption.
Dear children’s cream
I really liked the Mustela atopic skin cream. First of all, I could not but be pleased with the presence of a dispenser in it, because I have the most tender feelings for this device. But the cream itself was pleasantly surprised. Yes, it costs more than Antoshka (about 600r for 200ml), but, firstly, it is easy to apply and quickly absorbed, and secondly, it really eliminates dryness and peeling of the skin, thirdly, it has a great delicate smell.
Yes, I know that the best is the enemy of the good, but I still did not stop searching for the perfect cream. It turned out to be Topicrem – again, a delicate smell, excellent texture, a dispenser and a great result, and the cost is slightly less than the previous version – a little more than 800r for 500ml.
This is not a baby cream, and moisturizing body lotion, which is designed for everyone, since birth. The daughter, apparently, has already outgrown problems with dry skin, or is it the result of regular use of miracle cream, but I continue to regularly buy this lotion.
A friend highly recommends trying A-Derma lotion (hypoallergenic, for intensive moisturizing of the skin in children and adults), but so far I’m completely satisfied with Topicrem.
Using cream alone in the fight against dry skin is not enough – you should pay attention to the level of humidity in the room and pay attention to the quality of the fabric, which is adjacent to the skin of the child, give preference to natural materials
Remember that dry skin may be a reaction to laundry detergent that washed children’s clothes – keep its quantity to a minimum, monitor the quality and do not forget to use the extra rinse function in the washing machine.
