  • Caring for your little ones this summer will be more challenging for moms and dads than any other season. Given babies' sensitive and delicate skin, they will need extra care and nourishment to keep them safe and protected.

    It is then essential that parents opt for baby-friendly products and items that are gentle on the skin and are specifically designed for skin protection. If you’re not sure how to choose these baby skincare essentials, check out this list below:

    A mild sunscreen with SPF

    When it comes to choosing sunscreens for babies, experts recommend ones that are broad-spectrum, water-resistant, and provide a minimum sun protection factor (SPF) of 15.

    Check if the active ingredients include zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as these physical filters are less likely to cause a skin reaction. Remember to apply sunscreen 30 minutes before spending time under the sun (yes, even if it’s just on your balcony or in the backyard) and reapply it every two hours.

    A baby-friendly bug spray

    To maintain your baby’s clear and soft skin, add a bug spray to your shopping list, too! In a country like ours, bugs and mosquitoes remain a perennial concern. Since you’re going to use this product during the hot dry season, choose one that’s non-greasy and contains natural ingredients to prevent irritation.

    Apply sparingly to exposed skin and avoid the areas around the eyes or mouth. Be sure to read the product’s entire label before use as well.

    A soft, cotton towel

    We all know how the weather can affect mood and cause irritability. Babies feel the same way, too, especially given their sensitive skin.

    That’s why you need to be discerning when choosing any item that touches their skin. When the weather is hot, a super soft bath towel is a must after every bath. Get one that’s absorbent, light, and made of cotton so it's not abrasive to your baby's delicate skin.

    A nourishing hair-to-toe wash

    Last but not least: Give your little ones a much-needed TLC for their skin by choosing a baby wash that’s both mild and moisturizing. Not only will it cleanse their skin; it will also help hydrate it thanks to a baby-friendly formulation.

    Our reco? An all-in-one baby wash that has a rich, creamy lather and is gentle on delicate skin such as Baby Dove Hair to Toe Baby Wash.

    A baby wash and shampoo in one, this product gently cleanses and helps moisturize your baby's delicate skin to help keep it soft, smooth, and supple.

    If you’re worried about your little one’s skin getting dry after their bath, Baby Dove Hair to Toe Baby Wash has got that covered, too. It has 1/4 moisturizing cream to help retain your baby’s natural skin moisture and essential skin nutrients to help keep the skin touchably soft and healthy. The gentle fragrance will also complement your baby’s natural scent.

    Above all, you can count on Baby Dove Hair to Toe Baby Wash to help you provide your little one with nurturing care that goes beyond mildness, right from day one.
