Although your baby’s skin looks very much like your own, it is way different from yours. It is much softer, smoother, fresher – you get the point. Apart from that, there also that scintillating fresh-baby smells that we love so much! Now, there are many differences between babies’ skin and adults’ skin, but five take the lead:
1. Babies’ skin is much thinner than adults’. The thinness of the skin makes it more permeable. Babies’ skin doesn’t have as much fiber as does adults’ skin, this makes it easy for substances to permeate it. Also, babies’ skin’s epidermal layer is still developing; its connection with the dermal layer is still wobbly. Their skin is made up of smaller cells, and this increases the rate at which water and other substances get absorbed. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly thick skin; it is anything but thick.
2. Because of its thinness, it loses water much faster than adults’ skin does. You might have noticed that your baby’s skin often gets dry and rough. Well, that is because it loses water faster than your skin does. The thinness of babies’ skin doesn’t only allow water to get absorbed easily, it also makes the loss of that water easy. Also, unlike adult skin cells, babies’ skin cells have fewer hydrating molecules that keep the skin hydrated. Help your baby’s skin retain moisture by constantly moisturizing it with Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream.
3. It is more susceptible to sun damage. Your baby’s skin isn’t rich in melanin, the pigment that gives the skin its color and helps protect it from sun rays, just yet. As a result, too much exposure to the sun can cause damage. And, the permeability of the skin doesn’t help the matter; it grants the ultraviolet rays free access. If you’re going to take your baby out at all, do cover her up.
4. Its sensitivity makes it more vulnerable to diseases. When you were a baby, your skin pH was almost neutral. That is how your baby’s skin is right now. As we age, our skin pH becomes more acidic. This almost-neutral pH of the skin makes it more prone to skin irritations and susceptible to diseases. When you go to the store to get bath soaps for your baby, be careful not to buy alkaline soaps, and antibacterial soaps containing alcohol’ they can disrupt the skin pH
and cause irritation. We recommend Johnson’s Bath Soap, Soft & Fresh, Unwind, Makari Bebe Soap, Dove Bathing Bar Sensitive Moisture.
5. Babies’ skin is immature and therefore unable to regulate its temperature. Babies’ body is still learning how to adapt to its new environment, and regulating body temperature is one of the things it has to learn to do. Their bodies also have much less fewer glands than adults’ and so their sweats don’t make their body cool down like adults’ body sweats do. Help your baby by managing the factors that can affect her body temperature.
