Healthy Skin for the whole Family
Skin is our largest organ and it covers the entire body. It protects us against external factors such as heat, light and infection. It’s our body’s first line of protection against the elements and is also regulates our body temperature, prevents water loss and ensures that bacteria do not enter the body. So, using good quality skin care products is so important to keep our skin healthy.
Baby’s skin is soft and delicate and can be prone to sensitivity. Avoid using harsh skin care products and rather use body lotions and balms that are fragrance and colour free instead.
A multi-tasking skin care product like Vaseline petroleum jelly Baby is mild and gentle. It helps treat diaper rash and reduce irritation.
Young Children’s Skin
Toddlers and tweens are typically very physical, and spend most of their days playing and running around. Skin care is so important in this case as daily washing is required to get rid of dirt and germs. Ensure skin is moisturized after washing so that the skin’s moisture is replenished. A gentle body lotion should be used a few times a week to keep skin smooth and nourished. Vaseline dry skin repair contains a specially designed blend of glycerine (to pull moisture into all layers of skin) and micro-droplets of Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly (to lock moisture in). Clinically proven to restore dry skin for X3 longer.
Teenagers’ skin needs special attention as the onset of hormonal activity can cause trouble with an otherwise healthy skin. Acne is often a problem during the teen years and can affect areas on the body like the back, neck and chest. It is often incorrectly believed that skin suffering from acne is oily and doesn’t require additional moisture. This is not true. If you don’t give oily skin the moisture it needs, the sebaceous glands will produce even more oil! It is essential to wash the face and body daily to eliminate oils and dirt. Treat the face with the appropriate moisturizer and if oiliness is a problem, ensure you use oil-free moisturizer. Using a body lotion like Vaseline aloe soothe will nourish and soothe the skin, plus it absorbs quickly.
As you get older, ageing skin can become a great concern. The best skin care products for ageing skin are those that deal with dryness and uneven skin tone. Daily moisturising after a bath or shower is essential to keep skin looking young and healthy. Vaseline cocoa glow lotion is nourishing and infuses moisture into the skin. It adds a soft glow to the skin making it appear healthy and radiant.
