Summer skincare essentials for kids

Summers are great time to plan vacations and outings, but it is also a prime time for skin problems. Just like us, our babies may experience a lot more sweating and damage from harsh sunlight. Itchiness, dryness, sun burns, rashes, prickly heat can be troublesome during summer time. This is makes it important to follow a suitable skincare routine for babies and important to choose suitable products as well.

Our Skincare regimen this summer for my daughter:

I am sharing my favourite skincare and bath products to keep the summer rash and itching free for my little girl. This blog has been written after trying and testing these products and we highly recommend them too!

We are using the complete range from Himalaya BabyCare. It’s one of my favourite brands that I have been using since my daughter was born. Especially their wipes and diaper rash cream worked best on her sensitive skin. Their products are infused with the power of herbs and free from harmful ingredients such as SLS/SLES/ALES, phthalate, paraben, alcohol, artificial color/dye, mineral oil, and animal-derived ingredients lanolin, tallow etc.

 

Bath time favourite

For Bath time Kenisha loves a liquid wash in a loofah like me. The Himalaya Refreshing Baby Wash is perfect as it’s mild and soothing.

The wash is infused with the goodness of Watermelon that helps cool and refresh her skin, it also smells very nice,  and Neem’s anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties help protect baby’s skin.

Price: Rs. 85 for 100 ml and Rs. 150 for 200 ml

 

 

 

For those who prefer a soap bar for children, you can try the Himalaya Refreshing Baby Soap. Again, infused with the goodness of Watermelon, Vetiver, and Neem, makes this an excellent choice for summers: Vetiver helps manage itching and rashes, Watermelon helps cool baby’s skin, and Neem helps protect skin.

Price: Rs. 44 for 75 g, Rs. 55 for 100 g and Rs 64 for 125 g

 

Post Bath skincare routine

The only baby powder I have ever used for Kenisha has been from Himalaya. I tried their Himalaya Baby Prickly Heat Powder and it’s a great product to add to your summer skincare essential list of products.

Unlike similarly sold products, it is infused with the goodness Vetrier and Neem, which helps cool, relieve itching, and soothes baby’s skin It’s light and smells good too!

Price: Rs. 45 for 50 g, Rs. 75 for 100 g, and Rs. 130 for 200 g

 

 

Irrespective of the season it’s important to keep the skin hydrated even for kids. However, the choice of moisturiser and lotion for Summer must be thoughtful. The Himalaya Soothing Calamine Baby Lotion is light and absorbs easily into the skin and does not leave the skin feeling oily.

 

It has a herbal formulation and helps protect the baby’s skin from itching and rashes caused by prickly heat. Infused with the goodness of Aloe Vera, that helps accelerate the healing of baby’s skin, and Calamine helps heal wounds and soothes skin rashes.

Price: Rs. 90 for 50 ml, Rs. 165 for 100 ml, and Rs. 280 for 200 ml

 

Also Himalaya BabyCare products are clinically tested and proven to be completely safe and gentle on baby’s skin, yet I always recommend a patch test to everyone.

  1. The bath wash and the prickly heat powder by Himalaya sound amazing. I must try them for my toddler. We love himalaya products

  2. I like some of Himalaya products too – specially their bath range. Summers mean lots of sweat and multiple baths and good skincare products are required.

  3. Himalaya has been part of the family since my baby is born. We have used the entire range and trust by the quality and care it provides to the kid’s sensitive skin.
