Tackling your child’s irritated skin during winter!

Care for your baby’s skin as the weather changes.

What you need to know about baby skincare in winter.

The dry and colder air in winter forces your child’s skin to change. Their skincare needs will need an adjustment as well. Babies can have more delicate and sensitive skin than adults. This may make them even more prone to moisture loss, which means their skin can dry out quickly.

Here are a few skin concerns you may notice on your baby in winter:

  • Chapped lips
  • Rosy red cheeks
  • Dry, itchy skin

If your child already has dry skin or a skin condition like eczema, you’ll want to take extra care to protect it in winter. In babies, eczema often appears as a rash on the hands, face, neck, inside of the elbows and back of the knees, but may spread to other areas. Eczema rashes are associated with intense itching. If the condition continues or is severe, you should definitely seek advice from your child’s doctor.

There are several things that can help protect your baby’s skin or relieve dry, itchy skin during the winter, including:


Use mild skin cleansers or shampoos specially made for babies with sensitive skin. Be extra careful on areas often exposed to the environment. Use Sebamed’s Baby Cleansing Bar. It is a soap-free cleansing bar that promotes the development of the acid mantle.

Switch up bath time

Short baths in lukewarm water are best to reduce moisture loss. Exposure to water, especially hot water, can cause their skin to lose moisture. Use the Sebamed Baby Bath Time Combo which includes: Oil wipes, gentle wash, body lotion, and bubble bath. This combo not only cleanses and nourishes the skin without irritation, it also helps to support natural moisture balance.

Dry the skin after a bath by patting with a soft towel, and then immediately apply moisturizer. Do not rub the skin.


You can use the Baby Sebamed Cream Extra Soft. It is formulated for delicate skin with Jojoba Oil and Panthenol which helps support the natural moisture balance, giving your baby the best protection from day one.

Choose soft fabrics

Dress your child in soft, breathable fabrics that won’t irritate their skin.
