Protecting Toddler Skin in Winter

13 Dec 2017


Now we're well into winter, it's even more important to take care of our little one's skin and with Willow already prone to dry skin, I like to make sure we're using products that are kind and gentle, whilst also providing that boost of hydration her skin needs in the colder months.

Dove recently released a new Baby Dove range, which features products specifically formulated to work in harmony with the delicate skin of little ones, with products suitable for use right from birth. Baby skin is much more delicate than adults and up to 30% thinner, too, unable to hold moisture as well as adults and more prone to dryness. 

The Baby Dove range has been dermatologically tested and is paediatrically approved with products including cleansing body washes and shampoos, wipes and nappy creams as well as moisturisers. Formulated to replenish skin with essential moisture and nutrients, the range is divided in two; the Baby Dove Rich Moisture range and the Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture range, which is fragrance-free.

We've been putting the award-winning Rich Moisture range to the test, starting with bath time using the Baby Dove Rich Moisture Head to Toe Wash. A super gentle baby wash, it's hypoallergenic, pH-neutral and has a proven tear free formulation, working to cleanse baby skin whilst helping to replenish moisture and essential nutrients. It has a very light and subtle fresh fragrance and lathers up to produce lots of bubbles, which is super fun for Willow who likes to get involved and help as she massages the bubbles in. 

Post bath is when we like to make sure Willow's skin is protected the most, by applying the Rich Moisture Lotion and Rich Moisture Nappy Cream. The lotion has a combination of gentle and skin-loving ingredients which help care and protect baby skin, with the same lovely fresh fragrance of the Head to Toe Wash. I find it's very easy to apply, just the right consistency to sink into Willow's skin without leaving a greasy residue and her skin does feel more hydrated after using the lotion, even the areas where she is prone to mild eczema. 

The Baby Dove Rich Moisture Nappy Cream is the perfect size for having in your at-home changing box but also really great for popping in your changing bag for on-the-go too. We tend to use nappy cream to help prevent against the causes of dreaded nappy rash, which we find works well for us, so we pop some on after most changes. With a formula that works to instantly neutralise pH levels, it helps to prevent against the causes of nappy rash, keeping your baby comfortable and happy.

The Baby Dove range is available at Boots, with individual products ranging in price from 69p to £3.50. There are also some rather fab Baby Dove gift sets, including a selection of products, that would be great for baby shower gifts!
