Sensitive Skin Care Tips

Enjoy the messy moments of life and still care for your sensitive skin.

Life with babies and toddlers can get messy. While some kids seem to gravitate towards being natural cleaners and helpers, others delight in being as messy as possible. The trouble is, we know that their young skin is often very sensitive and needs gentle care. So, we went to the experts, moms who either still have little ones or have gone through this with their little ones and moms whose kids still have sensitive skin, even as they got older. So, we’re sharing our sensitive skin care tips and tricks.sensitive skin care tips for baby

We brought the Powered by Mom team on this one, as all of us are “you got it, moms” and it was fascinating to find out that many of us have trusted and used a certain brand. Why? Because it’s known to be gentle on skin, even for those with the most sensitive skin – babies.So, all the moms here, want to make sure all moms everywhere can enjoy even the messy moments, without having to worry about their baby’s skin. We’re sharing our tips and products we love below for those messy moments with the kiddos.sensitive skin care tips for bab

Use Products Made for Sensitive Skin

We all prefer to use products that are specifically created for sensitive skin care. Some products may say they have “natural ingredients,” but remember that not all ingredients can be used on sensitive skin, especially for babies and young children. My daughter’s skin has broken out in rashes from some products that weren’t made for sensitive skin. Now, we only use products we trust that are made for sensitive skin, like Aveeno Baby.

Powered by Mom’s (Michelle) baby may not be an actual baby any more, but she thinks all parents can agree that no matter how old they are, they are our babies forever and we always look out for them. She knows that Aveeno Baby products like their fragrance-free Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion will not irritate her skin. In fact, the product has colloidal oatmeal, which protects and keeps sensitive skin feeling soft and moisturized for up to 24 hours!sensitive skin care tips for bab

Use Brands You Trust

Aveeno has always had a great reputation and is a brand we trust. To us, they’re all about making their products suitable for your babies.

Here’s what a few Powered by Mom “mamas” had to say about the Aveeno products they used for their babies. 

The Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion is perfect for keeping even the most sensitive skin, baby soft and moisturized.  Mom Amy said “We loved Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo and Daily Lotion. Their products were great for my daughter’s eczema. They not only soothed but they were gentle enough on her skin yet, made her smell great.”

Mother Julie is a huge fan saying “We LOVE Aveeno! I use the Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion every day on all the kids, as well as the Calming Comfort Lotion with lavender for their bedtime routine. It’s gentle enough that they have all used it from their newborn stage through toddlerhood and beyond. Big fans here!!”sensitive skin care tips for babIt’s great when you know you can count upon Aveeno to tackle the biggest messes. Dirt, grime, and who knows what else ends up on baby’s hair, so we want to wash away any traces of anything that shouldn’t be there, while still being gentle on baby’s scalp and skin. With a gentle baby shampoo and wash, you can wash away any traces of dirt or grime. The Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo is perfect for bath time and it’s a subtle scent that makes baby smell oh so good and clean.

Find Versatile Sensitive Skin Care Products

The Aveeno Baby Hand & Face Wipes are not just for your hands, they are gentle on your face too. We all love that they are free of fragrance, alcohol, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, formaldehyde, chlorine, gluten, soap, dyes and toxins. They are gentle enough that you can use them every day on your “baby” or yourself and it will leave skin feeling clean, soft, and moisturized. Powered by Mom’s (Michelle) daughter uses them as part of her daily sensitive skin care routine along with the Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo. She loves the light scent and never has to worry that it will give her a rash. Her hair certainly smells lovely when she uses it.sensitive skin care tips for baby

These super soft Baby wipes are perfect for quick clean up of minor messy moments. They come in very convenient resealable pack, so it’s easy to take them with you when you travel. As we all know, messes don’t only happen at home —in fact, it sometimes feels like they always happen in the most inconvenient places.

Natural oat extract and aloe makes them wonderful for sensitive skin and they leave baby’s skin moisturized and soothed.  They remove even the stickiest of messes, while leaving no residue behind on your baby’s skin.

We actually use Aveeno Baby Hand & Face Wipes for any old spill. Aveeno is a paediatrician-recommended baby skincare brand; this means that you can feel 100% safe about using it to clean baby’s hands, face and anywhere (not to mention the table, chair, clothes…) Now, those endearing mess-makers are a little less troublesome to your peace of mind.sensitive skin care tips for babyMom Emily says: “I was seriously impressed with the Aveeno Baby Hand & Face Wipes. They are almost cloth-like and though they aren’t huge, I only needed one to clean my toddler’s face, hands and the table. They feel so soft and even left my skin feeling nice.”

Powered by Mom, Emily, Julie and Amy all say they like to keep the Aveeno Baby Hand & Face Wipes either in their car and/or in the purse. Julie also carries them in her diaper bag. Powered by Mom even likes to travel with these wipes just for her own unexpected messy moments, as she too has sensitive skin. She swears that the wipes are not only gentle on her sensitive skin but perfect for any of those messy travel moments.

Life is messy, sometimes it’s the mess that’s half the fun and other times, we just need to clean up the mess as easily as possible. We can choose to either enjoy the messy moment and move on or spend more time than we needed to clean up the mess or worry about it. We choose the first one with Aveeno Baby Hand & Face Wipes.
