For perfect baby skin solutions, we choose SheaMoisture products whenever possible. This brand is amazing on so many levels.
The obsession started way before my baby girl arrived. Though as she joined my life I have gone off the deep end in the search for all natural and effective baby, personal, and home products on a whole new level. Don’t judge me. 🙂
Problematic Patchy Baby Skin
There were a few months where baby Bean suffered from very dry, patchy skin on her chin and cheeks. I want to say that she was around 6 or 7 months when she was afflicted with this icky eczema type of condition. Though you may see it earlier or later depending on when your little one begins teething.
While it didn’t seem to bother my happy-go-lucky baby it pained me to watch her tender skin flake and peel off right in front of my eyes. We visited the doctor and were prescribed a steroid cream as a solution. Needless to say, I never bothered to get the prescription filled. I wanted to do something to help her and I wanted to do it right and I wanted to do it quick.
This is familiar to moms and dads whose little ones are beginning to teethe. The never-ending stream of drool irritates the sensitive skin around the mouth and causes it to dry out, crack, and even peel. I know there are parents out there who, like me, were desperate to help your munchkin any way possible.
BAM’s Irritated Baby Skin Solution
This is one of those amazing times where I didn’t have to jump from product name to product name to find the perfect solution. SheaMoisture has been in my personal product arsenal for quite some time due to their amazing, natural product line and their ingredients.
As a family run company, we’re extremely particular about what products we use on our little ones. Since my grandmother Sofi Tucker started making and selling her shea butter soaps in Sierra Leone back in 1912, our focus has been creating natural, solution-oriented products for the entire family,” says CEO Richelieu Dennis. “We’ve specifically formulated these products to pamper and protect the delicate, ultra-sensitive skin of the newest member of the family.”
So, when I saw their baby line I nearly had to pinch myself and, of course, I stocked up.
In particular, these are our go to products and my little ones baby skin loves them:
Solving Our Baby Skin Issues
In just about two weeks my little ones baby skin was getting back its smoothness and healthy glow a baby should. Our routine consisted of 2-3 baths per week (still do at age one) where we used the SheaMositure Wash & Shampoo (listed above). Following immediately each bath we slathered on the Healing Lotion (listed above) onto her damp skin and used the Head to Toe Ointment (also, listed above) as the skin dried out and before we headed outside (especially if it was windy).
Her skin is back to normal now and we haven’t seen the ugly condition rear its ugly head as we continue the ritual above. Bean and I really hope this info helps you and your little one solve your baby skin issues.
Since 1912, SheaMoisture has made its award-winning, shea-butter-based skin and hair care products using family recipes handed down from founder and CEO Richelieu Dennis’ grandmother Sofi Tucker, who as a young mother, sold her shea butter creations to support her family in Sierra Leone.
