I dare you to find anything more glorious to touch than the soft skin of a baby. All that freshness, yet to be marred by sun exposure and environmental pollutants is enviable and lovely at the same time. But there is a price for maintaining that signature complexion babies are known for, and it's not as simple as adding a few daps of moisturizer to their daily routine. That delicate skin deserves the best, and needs maintenance around the clock, which is why working ways to keep baby's skin moist when they're sleeping into your daily routine will help fight off dryness and irritation.
Although babies are born with that next-to-prefect skin, keeping it that way requires dedication from parents. According to the website for What To Expect, "your baby's brand-new skin is not only thinner and more sensitive than yours, but it also produces fewer moisturizing oils than the grown-up version." Things such as indoor temperature, weather, and exposure to skin irritants can cause baby's skin to cross over to the dry side. To make sure moisture stays locked in while your little one dreams, use these seven ideas for soft baby skin that will stave off the dryness around the clock.
