Moisturize your skin at least twice a day. Creams, ointments and lotions seal in moisture. Choose a product or products that work well for you. Using petroleum jelly on your baby's skin may help prevent development of atopic dermatitis.
Using multiple soaps, lotions, fragrances, and mixes of products may cause further issues and skin sensitivity.
Take shorter baths or showers. Limit your baths and showers to 10 to 15 minutes. And use warm, rather than hot, water.
Use only gentle soaps. Choose mild soaps. Deodorant soaps and antibacterial soaps can remove more natural oils and dry your skin.
Dry skin carefully. After bathing gently pat skin dry with a soft towel and apply moisturizer while skin is still damp.
