Spring is a time of renewal: birds chirping, flowers blooming, and your little ones’ skin emerging from a cocoon of intensive winter balms and chapsticks.
After months of alternating between hot, dry indoor air and the harsh cold outside, your baby’s skin is definitely ready for a shift in seasonal skin care.
1. Hydration is Essential
Does it seem like drinking more water is at the root of every diet, workout and skin care routine? That’s because it really does wonders for your body! Your Little one’s organs need hydration to function, and their skin is their body’s largest organ. The more water they drink, the easier it will be to keep their skin from getting dry and flakey.
2. Always apply Sunscreen, even on cloudy days
Sunscreen isn’t just for those days at the beach. Even overcast days can still send harmful UV rays down to attack our skin. Defend it! Make sure to apply sunscreen especially on exposed parts of your baby’s body, even on cloudy days, to protect their skin from sun damage. We recommend using a mineral sunscreen – whether its for your little ones or for yourself. This way you are keeping your baby safe from the sun without the added health risks that come with chemical sunscreen.
3. Snacking done right!
Speaking of hydration, a great way to get more water into your day is by snacking on fresh fruit and veggies - and we all know how much those little monsters love snacking. Fresh fruits and veggies can be a delicious snack, and ones that are packed with the water your system needs – plus vitamins and nutrients. Great foods for healthy skin include lettuce, broccoli, grapefruit, carrots, apples, and watermelon. Studies have found that citrus fruits are especially helpful for skin health.
4. Use a Lighter Lotion
While winter had you slathering thick, heavy Balms from head to toe, the same products can start to leave a greasy layer on your skin as the days grow warmer. As part of your little one’s spring skin care routine, choose a lighter Lotion to keep their skin healthy and hydrated without weighing it down. The Timi&Mila Baby Lotion is a great light option; with ingredients like Honey and Goat Milk your little one’s skin is going to feel amazing without the heaviness of winter balms!
5. Get Moving
With weather warming up as spring starts, it is a great opportunity to go outside and move your body! Its now time to get those bikes or roller skates out and take advantage of that beautiful spring weather! If you don’t wanna take it that far you can always consider taking a nice walk around the block as a family! Remember that with spring there will always be rain! And little ones love jumping in the puddles and getting wet. Make sure you dry out those hidden folds and rolls really well to avoid any skin issues after that! Its always a good idea to use a gentle body wash to clean up without drying out their skin. Our Timi&Mila Shampoo & Body Wash has great lather and moisturizing ingredients that is perfect for your little one’s skin.
