The basics for healthy, baby soft skin

Caring for such delicate, brand new baby skin can be scary for any new mom, and you’re probably experiencing information overload leaving you unsure of where to start. 

With 50+ years of skincare expertise, we’re here to help you learn more about your baby’s skin and how to care for it. For starters, you might not realize that your baby’s skin is actually 30% thinner than yours so it loses moisture faster. That’s why we recommend products that go beyond mild cleansing and protection to provide that important extra moisture. 

Try our handy tips to find a skincare routine that works for you and your baby.

6 survival tips for new mums and dads

When you were pregnant, you probably had an idea of what coping with a baby would be like – but the reality is often very different.
