How To Keep Baby’s Skin Soft & Itch-Free During Allergy Season

If your baby’s skin is itching this spring, turn to AVEENO® BABY’s Soothing Relief line

We all know the saying “as smooth as a baby’s bottom.” We all strive to have baby fresh skin, and we associate it with wrinkle-free, smooth, problem-free skin. But when seasonal changes get in the way, this statement might not be as true as we think.

As we move from winter to spring, babies are hit with a whole new set of skin-related issues, and that itchiness and dryness that we thought was a thing of the past can start to creep back in.

Think about it, as adults we change our skincare routine with the changing season, so why should your baby be any different? Their skincare routine should also change as we head from the bitter cold into warmer temperatures to deal with their skin care needs.

If your baby suffers from allergies, it is even more likely that they will suffer from dry, itchy skin in the spring months. And because a baby’s skin is even more delicate, it actually makes them more likely to suffer from extremely dry skin.

This is especially true if we, as parents, aren’t careful about what products we use on their sensitive skin during these transitional times.

Dry skin can be a serious problem for babies, as it can cause itching, irritation and discomfort. The best way to deal with baby’s sensitive skin is to make sure that anything you are putting on their skin is properly formulated to deal with their needs.

Pediatricians suggest a regimen approach to skincare for babies, much like you would do for your own skin this spring. Start with a gentle cleanser followed by an effective moisturizer to give your baby complete protection. This approach can help to soothe baby’s dry, irritated skin.

But what products should you be using?

Enter the AVEENO® BABY Soothing Relief Creamy Wash ($6.97/236 mL), a cleanser developed specifically for baby, to cleanse, sooth and relieve dry skin. The natural colloidal oatmeal helps to soothe the skin and also restores any lost moisture. This soap-free, tear-free, allergy-tested cleanser will leave baby’s skin feeling moisturized for a full 24 hours.

Once baby has been bathed using the Soothing Relief Creamy Wash, it is important to follow up with a moisturizer that will nourish baby’s skin. As with your own skin, you want to avoid moisturizers that are difficult to spread or are overly greasy, as they tend to leave an unpleasant residue that even babies dislike and make it harder to stick with the proper skincare regimen.

AVEENO® BABY Soothing Relief Moisture Cream ($9.46/223 mL) pairs perfectly with the AVEENO® BABY Soothing Relief Creamy Wash. It’s formulated just for babies’ sensitive skin and has been dermatologist tested. It features the same soothing natural colloidal oatmeal as well as rich, moisturizing emollients. Fragrance free, hypoallergenic and dye free, the Soothing Relief Moisture Cream absorbs quickly and has been clinically proven to moisturize for 24 hours.
