Dr. Shilpa Vora, Marico expert shares tips on how you can safeguard your baby’s skin during the monsoon season

 

While the monsoon season offers a much-needed break from the heat, it can be challenging for your baby. The increased humidity and dampness not only heighten the risk to your little one’s immunity but also can cause various skin issues such as rashes, redness, and infections.

Dr. Shilpa Vora, Chief Research & Development Officer, Marico Limited says, “A newborn baby's skin is very sensitive and 30% thinner than an adult's, with fewer lipids, making it fragile and prone to damage and dryness. This makes it essential to nourish their skin with care.  Virgin coconut oil is known to be gentle for your baby’s delicate skin. Parachute Advansed Baby enriched with virgin coconut oil offers a comprehensive range of baby care products designed to meet your newborn's skin and moisturizing needs.”

Below are a few tips from Dr. Shilpa Vora to keep in mind to protect your baby’s delicate skin during the monsoon season:

Regularly moisturize your baby’s skin with a virgin coconut oil-based nourishing lotion or cream. This will help keep your baby’s skin moisturized for 24 hours so your baby can have soft, smooth, and healthy nourished skin. You can also massage your baby once a day with a nourishing oil enriched with virgin coconut oil which contains nutrients found in mother's milk*. A massage with a nourishing oil offers more benefits than simple touch therapy, enhancing skin barrier function and thermoregulation while positively impacting growth, bone strength, muscle development, and neurodevelopment^.

In addition to this, it is important to choose the right clothing for your baby. While the rains drop down the temperatures, it also increases the overall humidity in the air making your little one sweat. In this situation, it is best to opt for loose clothing and preferably avoid synthetic material and stick to cotton clothes to avoid excessive sweating which can lead to rashes. Given the increase in the moisture in the air, it is necessary to change your baby’s diapers often and keep his/her skin dry to avoid diaper rashes.

Maintaining your baby’s skin during the monsoon season needs a combination of good hygiene and moisturization. Using products enriched with virgin coconut oil will help keep your baby’s skin healthy by providing essential and safe nourishment, ensuring your baby remains happy and cheerful.
