In the winter, many treasure mothers found that the baby’s smooth and delicate skin suddenly became dry and rough, and some babies may even have cleft palate and peel off.
Seeing the baby’s skin problems, this makes the baby feel very uncomfortable. Moms are also very anxious, if the mothers understand why the baby’s skin is dry in the winter, so that measures can be taken to care for the baby’s skin.
So, what is the reason why baby skin is easy to dry in winter?

The thickness of the baby’s skin is only one-third of that of an adult. When exposed to any irritation, it can cause skin discomfort. For example, weather changes, clothing thickness, clothing materials, etc., will damage the baby’s skin.
Second, low sebum secretion
During the two months of the baby’s birth, sebum secretion will be more vigorous due to the mother’s hormone protection during the fetus. However, after this period of time, the original protective layer gradually disappears, and the baby’s sebum secretion is rapidly reduced, so it is easy to dry and rough.
Third, high water demand
Infants have a high density of sweat pores and are often very active, resulting in a large amount of water evaporation in the body and a greater demand for water. If the water is not replenished in time, the baby’s skin is prone to dryness.

In some parts of the South, the climate itself is very humid, even without skin care, while in the north, dry climate and heavy sand, you should pay attention to the choice of moisturizing skin care products to care for your baby’s skin.
Third, mainly moisturizing skin care
Baby skin care products are moisturizing lotion, moisturizing cream and moisturizing oil. Moisturizing lotions mainly contain natural moisturizing ingredients, which can effectively moisturize baby skin. It is the most commonly used skin care product for winter babies. The moisturizing oil contains natural mineral oil that prevents dryness and is more effective in moisturizing the skin.
