Seize the “prime time” of baby skin care
[Guide]Newborn baby’s skin looks flawless, but it is also very delicate. It may be affected by external stimuli at any time. After the baby’s skin is fully developed, it will become an irreparable regret.
Therefore, the baby’s inherently perfect skin needs more careful care.
0 ~ 3 years old is the prime time for baby skin care. Recent research shows that 0 ~ 3 years old is the period when baby’s skin is developing rapidly, and it is also the “golden time” for them to gradually improve their skin barrier function.
If the mother is able to supplement the baby’s skin with proper nutrition while moisturizing in time, it will help promote the baby’s skin barrier function development and retain their perfect skin during the “golden time” of skin care.
However, most mothers don’t know that the skin of babies aged 0 ~ 3 looks tender, smooth, and flawless. In fact, it needs special care.
Because their skin barrier function is not yet fully developed, the water on the surface layer of the skin is easily lost; coupled with the thin cuticle of the skin, the ability to resist various external stimuli is weak, so the skin is particularly vulnerable.
These damages will accumulate with age and it will not be possible to recover after the baby’s skin has matured.
From now on, the baby’s skin thickness is only 1/3 of that of an adult, the skin’s stratum corneum is thin, the barrier function is weak, and the ability to balance and adjust the acid-base balance is poor. It takes 3 years to develop to reach the adultThe same level.
In the meantime, the baby’s delicate skin will be tested by various stimuli from the outside, including bacteria, ultraviolet rays, dust, etc. For these “attacks”, the baby’s delicate skin has almost no tricks, and is inherently “perfect””The status is inevitably reduced.
It can be seen that it is urgent to take care of the perfect skin of the baby.
According to the survey, the skin’s moisturizing activity is the highest in the infant’s birth. Therefore, the baby’s skin always looks smooth and hydrated, and is full of luster.
However, with age, the moisturizing activity of the baby’s skin will gradually decrease, and the moisturizing ability and health of the skin will depend more on the perfection of the skin function.
Experts recommend that mothers now properly nourish and protect their tender skin!
In winter, the baby’s skin needs to be “tonic”. In winter, the baby’s skin will face more severe challenges from the environment. Due to the poor barrier function, under low temperature and dry environment, the baby’s skin not only continues to be dehydrated, but also often lackssupport”.
Therefore, in winter, in addition to hydrating, nourishing the baby’s skin is essential.
During the baby’s skin development, although its own ability to absorb free water molecules in the air is very high, due to imperfect skin functions, most of the absorbed water stays on the skin surface and is easily lost.
Therefore, the key to caring for the skin and maintaining its perfect state is to provide sufficient nutrition for skin development, promote skin barrier function, improve the ability to resist external aggression, and improve the skin’s self-healing mechanism.
Experts suggest that providing nutrition for infant skin development should include two aspects: First, pay attention to the intake of protein and lipids (fatty acids) in the diet. Food contains a large number of nutrients that promote the development of the human body. These nutrients are important for the skin.Developmental effects are significant.
Such as protein, fat, vitamins A, C, D, B12, folic acid and iron, etc., and foods rich in these nutrients are mainly milk, meat, fish, eggs, soy products, seafood, animal liver, Green fruits and vegetables, mushrooms, etc.
In addition, in order to prevent the loss of nutrients on the baby’s skin, in addition to the nutritional supplements of food intake, a certain amount of nutritional supplements must be given to the skin from the outside.
Because the baby’s skin is weakly acidic, when choosing baby skin care products, pay attention to choosing products rich in neutral or slightly acidic nutrients, such as vitamins, pearl powder, and protein, which are more suitable for skin absorption.
