There's nothing as soft and smooth as baby's skin, right? Our little one's skin is precious and needs to be taken care of in unique ways. It is very delicate, and can be prone to irritation. Because of its sensitivity, we should avoid using products with strong artificial fragrances, chemicals and detergents. This is why the natural route is best.
Y.Wait Beauty products are all-natural, so they are beneficial for everyone; from the very young to the very old. That said, they key is to have the right skincare routine and combination of products for your age and skin type. This is especially true for babies!
So this week, we've selected our top natural baby skincare products for your tiny tots and detailed the best ways to use them. To get you inspired, we've also included some short videos by @rhianna.beau and her son, Adam. They are simply too cute to miss! 🤗
Shampoo & Body Wash
Our Shampoo & Body Wash is a gentle multi-use cleanser that is perfect for washing sensitive skin, as well as your baby's hair and scalp. It contains softening oils such as coconut oil and olive oil, which also have natural healing properties to balance skin and calm irritation. You only need a small amount!
Any of our Shampoo & Body Washes would be a great choice, but we especially love the rose geranium scent of 'KJ' Shampoo & Body Wash for babies.
Did you know you can use our Oatmeal Mask on your baby? While it's not essential, it can be a lovely treat for their skin. Oatmeal is a super gentle natural ingredient that is good for moisturising dry areas on the face and body, and it can also soothe conditions such as eczema and even nappy rash.
Put a tablespoon of the mask in a bowl, and mix in a little bit of water to make a paste. Apply it to your baby's skin, leave on for 5-10 minutes, and gently remove with a warm, damp cloth.
Our Multi-Purpose Moisturisers are hand made with shea butter — another magical, moisturising ingredient that is suitable for baby's sensitive skin, preventing dryness.
We highly recommend the 'KJ' Moisturiser for baby massages! Babies respond well to comforting touch and softly massaging their skin allows for bonding, and has numerous health benefits for your baby. They will sleep better too, which gives their skin barrier chance to develop properly.
Pop a little Y.Wait Cuticle Oil on your tiny tot's tiny toenails to keep them hydrated and healthy!
Our Cuticle Oil contains a blend of olive oil, wheatgerm oil and and vitamin E to encourage healthy nail growth, and rose geranium oil for a beautiful, natural scent. With babies, you only need to use a drop or two! This amount will be enough for all their toes. Apply it after a bath and combine with a little foot massage to relax your baby before bedtime.
Caring for your baby's and toddler's skin takes a little effort but we hope this blog has shown that you can keep it natural, simple and effective, whilst spending precious moments bonding with them. If you have any questions, feel free to ask us in the comments! 💛
