It is common for newborn babies to experience skin problems. Atopic dermatitis occurs in up to one-third of all dermatological cases and new parents often worry when they see these symptoms appearing in their children – and they wonder how to treat them quickly and effectively. We have some answers here.

Acne Skin
What is atopic dermatitis?

The ideal kind of facial cleanser is one that maintains your skin’s natural moisture, doing its job to remove dirt, makeup and excess oil, while not drying out the skin. Look for a soap-free, fragrance-free, gentle cleanser like Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser or Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser. And be sure not to over-wash, as this can lead to dryness and irritation. Cleansing your face once in the morning and once in the evening should be enough.

As well as helping your skin feel softer and smoother, moisturizers can improve hydration and help restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Look for a gentle moisturizer for sensitive skin that doesn’t contain unnecessary (and potentially irritating) ingredients such as colors and fragrances. Cetaphil Moisturising Cream, Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion, are specially formulated for sensitive skin; fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. 

Cleansing Face

Regular exfoliation helps to deep clean skin, removing irritants, impurities and pollutants, so it’s good practice. Plus, exfoliation has the added benefit of removing dead skin cells and promoting skin renewal, giving you healthier-looking skin. But not all facial scrubs are the same. When looking for an exfoliating product, be sure to use one that’s specifically designed for sensitive skin, like Cetaphil Extra Gentle Daily Scrub

Whatever products you use, it’s important to carve out a regular skin care routine that works for you, your lifestyle and your sensitive skin.
