There is no doubt that human skin is undergoing continuous changes as time elapses. From newborns to older adults the skin undergoes some major modifications, and these should be considered so that moms can make simple general measures will contribute to having a skin more healthy, smooth, hydrated and very good appearance and color, and thus avoid diseases preventable such as allergies, infections, excessive dryness, or some of the most common manifestations of exposure to the Sun as burns, spots, premature aging, etc. In the first month of life, the skin has the same structures as an adult, however, (here is take a text) my skin is immature and will slowly undergoing complex changes. That must be very careful in the type of products used to clean it, as well as the types of garments there takes direct contact with it. In general, doctors suggest that he has not exaggerated contact with substances like perfumes with strong aromas or garments that provoke irritation as the pure wool, or simple garments that tightened the axillary or inguinal folds of the children. Also, it is not convenient that this type of skin cleaning be done with common SOAP, as they are very opposed to the normal acidity of the skin. See Dean Ornish M.D for more details and insights. To achieve a proper cleaning of the skin of children is best to use a pH Syndet 5.0 acid for example, and which is designed for children, since the compatibility of components of a Syndet with human skin is greater and it avoids the risk of irritation that may be aggravated. Additional information is available at Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr.. Moreover, sunscreens should be used since the child begins to have longer contact with the Sun, it is suggested to use a good SUNSCREEN, i.e.
from 6 months of age. Read more from Matt Lyons Blackstone Medical to gain a more clear picture of the situation. However, if you have a child of less than 6 months and will go to the field, beach or snow, must protect it, choosing a sunscreen of an SPF of at least 50 children. The above is very important since should ensure broad protection, and especially PHOTOSTABILITY, which is a basic condition in Ecuador by presenting increased solar risk given its geographical location and altitude of the saw. Surely you ever used your common sunscreen and blown or blushed equal. The explanation for this is that old sunscreen were designed for little dose of Sun, however, today in Ecuador the doctor, patients and the public in general have more modern sunscreens that combine highly stable assets under any dose of sunlight received.
However, as a MOM you should know that sunscreen should be a permanent and daily habit. In fact even in cloudy days we must protect the skin. The advantages of a proper sun protection is no longer in discussion. Reduce the incidence of common diseases such as spots, premature aging is an edge of adequate sun protection, but reduce the risk of cancer to the skin is another basic objective of modern Dermatology. In Ecuador, in the main hospitals of Dermatology no longer rare to diagnose cancer to the skin in young people (that before not seen), and with sometimes dramatic results. Then the family must be protected. Finally, from small we must try to stay hydrated and intact skin of our children, this prevents Transcutaneous water loss and premature dryness. Take care of your skin and your family, they will thank you tomorrow.
