An Effective 3 Step Skincare Routine for Baby Eczema

Atopic dermatitis, a type of eczema, is a chronic skin condition affecting up to 25% of children, including babies. It is distressing for parents to see their child suffering with red, itchy, inflamed skin. While it is difficult to get rid of eczema entirely, there are ways to manage symptoms. Our blog post titled, “Tips on the most effective baby eczema treatment” to learn more facts about baby eczema and the different eczema types.

For effective treatment of baby eczema, a consistent skin care routine to maintain hydration and reduce irritation is key. LEMYKA is here to help make your life easier, so we came up with a step-by-step skincare guide that you can implement in your baby’s daily routine.

Step 1: Start with cleansing your skin!

Use LEMYKA’s Gentle Hair & Body Wash to gently cleanse your baby’s skin and scalp, removing dirt, bacteria, and other irritants that can exacerbate eczema-prone skin - all while soothing any existing irritation. Unlike other body wash products on the market, this multipurpose body wash offers thorough cleansing and doesn't include any harsh ingredients. Instead, it is packed with nature’s best ingredients!

Step 2: Hydrate your skin with a good quality moisturizer.

Keeping the skin hydrated is very important for babies struggling with eczema, as their skin barrier is often compromised, leaving them susceptible to irritants. Moisturizing regularly can help replenish and lock in moisture. LEMYKA’s Hydrating Cream is specifically formulated for babies. We include gentle, natural ingredients such as aloe vera, organic calendula, plant oils, and more good stuff. This product is great for baby’s dry, itchy, irritated skin and teething/drooling irritation.

Step 3: In the morning, apply sunscreen!

Sunscreen is EXTREMELY important for anyone who struggles with eczema. UV radiation can trigger or make eczema flare ups worse by damaging the skin’s barrier and increasing inflammation. Using a gentle, fragrance free sunscreen can help minimize any skin irritation and allergic reactions. LEMYKA’s ZnO Baby Mineral Sunscreen is formulated with this in mind. This sunscreen is fragrance-free and offers broad spectrum SPF 30+. Our only active ingredient is ZnO - safe for babies as young as 6 months old. Our sunscreen resembles a lotion, breathable and non-greasy. Make sure to reapply after 2 hours in direct sunlight!

We advise you to complete this routine every morning and night, applying sunscreen only in the morning. Although our products are very gentle, remember to conduct a patch test for each product to make sure your little one is not allergic to any of the ingredients!

You may be wondering, “wow, it is that simple?” 

Yes! For the most part, a simple skincare routine is best. Too many products can irritate the skin and clog pores. 

In addition to a consistent, simple skin care routine, there are other courses of action you may need to take to manage eczema flare ups - such as recognizing triggers, keeping your infant’s nails short to prevent scratching, avoiding certain clothing materials, etc. Visit our blog post “How to treat baby eczema?” to learn more about other factors that need to be taken into account when trying to manage your child’s eczema.
