How to choose moisturizing products for baby in winter? Every autumn and winter, the baby's skin needs special care. The baby's skin is easy to lose water, dry, wrinkle, desquamate, red, especially the face and back of small hands. So it's very important to take care of your baby's skin. In the face of more and more children's moisturizing products, should we choose moisturizing cream, moisturizing lotion or moisturizing oil for our baby? It's really the first two.
Because the skin of infants is not only dry, but also has high pH value and low anti infection ability. In addition, it is easy to be affected by the outside world. The self-regulation ability of the skin is not perfect and sweating is more. Therefore, it is necessary to choose weak acid skin care products for infants, which can protect skin moisture balance, contain no alcohol, have low irritation and are close to the pH value of infant skin. In the process of purchase, we also need to pay attention to:
The quality of the skin care products of infants and young children determines the texture of the products is thinner and thinner, especially the moisture content of lotion / emulsion is very high. After coating, they should feel water and water and have a sense of transparency. If you feel thick and sticky after applying, you should pay attention to whether it is a special skin care product for infants.
2. The quality of mineral oil
Baby oil is generally divided into vegetable oil and mineral oil. Mineral oil is more refreshing than vegetable oil, and high-quality mineral oil has a good moisturizing effect. However, some skin does not adapt to mineral oil, which will cause acne after use. Therefore, the quality of mineral oil varies from person to person.
3. Buy small package
The amount of skin care products for infants and young children is less each time, and it often takes a relatively long time to use up a product. Therefore, in addition to paying attention to the shelf life, we should also try to buy products with good stability and small packaging.
4. Listening and believing in nature
In general, the raw materials of skin care products need chemical agents to solidify, and the products without preservatives need to be stored in vacuum bottles, and the shelf life is very short. So don't believe in nature. When purchasing, we need to pay attention to whether the chemicals that must be added exceed the standard, and whether the functional raw materials that are not suitable for infants such as whitening are added.
5. Buy cooked, not raw
Professional brands selling baby products will research products according to the skin characteristics of infants and young children, and the products have quality assurance. Therefore, we should buy special children's brand products. In the choice of products, we should choose products that are always sold well. New brands and new products should not blindly follow the trend. Don't let the baby's skin become an 'experimental field'.
Characteristics of infant skin
Sebum covers the surface of the skin and plays the role of protection, emulsification, buffering, excretion, antibacterial and biological conditioner. The total sebum content of newborns was close to that of adults, but it began to decrease about one month after birth; Throughout childhood, due to hormone control, the amount of sebum secretion is less, so the skin of infants is dry. Boys usually produce more sebum than girls.
The moisture content of newborns is 74.5%, that of infants is 69.4%, and that of adults is 64%.
The pH value of adult skin is generally between 4.2 and 5.5. The pH value of the placenta is about 7.4, so the pH value of the skin of the newborn is close to neutral. Therefore, the skin of the newborn can not effectively inhibit the proliferation of bacteria, and the anti infection ability is low.
The total number of sweat glands in newborns and adults is the same, but the number of sweat glands per unit area is different: the average number of sweat glands in adults is 120 / square centimeter, and that in infants is 500 / square centimeter.
To sum up, the skin properties of infants can be summarized as follows: high moisture content of skin; High pH value and low anti infection ability; Sweating a lot per unit area; The total sebum content is low and the skin is dry.
