Skin Care

Refine By
Babies have sensitive skin, so it's important to use special care to prevent chafing and rashes. For at least the first year, opt for nontoxic baby washes and baby laundry detergents that are free of dyes and fragrances. Use protective ointments for diaper rash and over-the-counter baby lotion for dry skin. The American Academy of Dermatology also recommends using a broad-spectrum baby sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more for children over 6 months.
