If you’re planning to be out and about with your family this winter, then your little one’s sensitive skin may feel the harsh effects of the chilly weather. WaterWipes – the world’s purest baby wipe – are the baby essential you need this winter.
Baby skin is much thinner and more sensitive than adult skin so it is important to have a ‘winter skin plan’ to keep your baby’s delicate skin healthy and clear from rashes and skin conditions.
Reducing exposure to irritants in the winter months is a key part of your baby’s skin care plan. Investing in a packet of WaterWipes will help you clean effectively without the need for soap.
Developed specifically for newborn baby skin, WaterWipes are the only wipe to be endorsed by Allergy UK and the Eczema Association of America. Made with just 99.9% water, purified and softened and 0.1% fruit extract, a natural skin conditioner, you can be confident that you’ll be leaving baby’s skin clean and free from potential irritants.

Caring for baby’s skin in winter
So, if you are out enjoying all the family packed adventures this winter, WaterWipes offers the following advice:
- Avoid bathing your baby in hot water, opting for warm water instead; this will help prevent your baby’s skin from becoming dry and irritable.
- Constant change between cold air and central heating can wreak havoc with the skin’s natural barrier. Using a high-quality moisturiser after bathing your baby will help protect the natural skin barrier and will help avoid water loss from the skin.
- Chapped skin – dry skin that becomes inflamed – typically occurs on the face and bottom. This can be managed by avoiding lengthy periods of time in harsh weather conditions and generously moisturising your baby.
- Cradle cap is common during the colder months; gently rubbing baby oil on the scalp will help loosen the flakes, which will make it easier for them to be brushed out. If you suspect that your baby’s cradle cap has become infected, then it’s best to visit your GP.
