Homemade Natural Baby Skin Care Recipes
When baby has sensitive skin, things like perfumes and petroleum just make it worse.
So, you know you want natural baby skin care but you don't know where to start?
Here are some ideas for you.
Olive oil can be used on baby's dry skin. It's been known to help diaper rash as well.
Use 100% pure cornstarch instead of perfumed baby powders. It's better for baby's lungs and skin, and easier on your wallet as well.
Mix 1/4 cup of baby or olive oil with 2 cups of water and 1/4 cup baby shampoo. Cut a roll of paper towels in half. Remove the cardboard center. Place it in an old baby wipes container and pour the oil/soap mixture over the wipes. Use like regular wipes.
Oatmeal bath for kids.
Grind 1 cup of plain oatmeal in a food processor or coffee grinder until it turns into a powder. Add it to running water and stir with your hand to get the oatmeal powder to dissolve in the bath water. Relives itching due to chicken pox, poison oak, diaper rash etc. Also good for dry skin.
