With all of the exciting outdoor activities the summer brings, who doesn’t want to enjoy some “fun in the sun” with their children? Unfortunately, it takes a long time for a baby’s delicate skin to fully develop, making it extremely important to keep it protected from the sun’s harmful rays. As little as ten minutes of direct sun exposure can take a toll on a baby’s sensitive skin. In addition to lathering up your little ones with SPF this summer, parents must be sure to keep their baby’s skin hydrated and nourished with essential moisturizing ingredients. Belli, the world’s safest skincare line available to address specific issues of pregnant women, new moms and babies, is dedicated to making sure that their products have all the components a baby’s developing skin quenches.
“It is extremely important to keep your baby’s skin hydrated. Unlike mature skin, a baby’s skin absorbs and loses moisture at a faster pace,” says Annette Rubin, a mother and Founder of Belli. “The hot weather and the sun add to the skin’s dehydration which is likely to create dry, chapped and irritated skin causing babies extreme pain and discomfort. The “Nourish Me” Enriched Body Lotion uses the most delicate ingredients to keep the baby’s skin hydrated and soft.”
“Nourish Me” Enriched Body Lotion is a pure and gentle hydrating cream which features essential ingredients for new, developing skin. The main ingredient in this product is the essential oil of chamomile which is used to soften, smooth and soothe the skin. (Retail Cost $19.00)
Tips to Keep Baby’s Skin Safe in Sunny Weather
- Moisturize your baby’s skin daily to prevent it from dehydration and irritation
- When in the sun, apply SPF 50 (at least) to your baby several times through out the day
- Keep your baby’s head protected with a hat to avoid their scalp from getting sun burn
- Pick a spot near shade so the baby’s skin doesn’t have too much exposure to the sun
