If you walk through the baby section of your basic all-in-one store today, you’re likely to see lots of skin products for children. Even the aisles where you buy your own face wash and makeup might have some children’s skin products on display. As a parent, you may wonder if these skin products for kids actually work.
The truth is that it depends on the products you buy and what you’re buying them for. If you’re treating a medical skin condition, such as eczema, you may need to consult with your pediatrician to get an actual prescription for the skin products your child needs. Over the counter products might not do the trick. Prescription products will be stronger, though, so make sure that your child really has a problem before resorting to these skin products.
Also, you need to make sure that you’re getting skin products that are gentle enough for children. Small children and even younger teenagers shouldn’t use the same skin products that adults use. These products are meant to treat oily adult skin, and they’ll be too harsh for a child’s skin.
Skin products that are made just for children may work to solve your child’s mild acne, dry skin, or other problems. You may just need to try different products to see what works. To test out a product, use it alone for a few days, making sure your child doesn’t have a negative reaction. With high quality skin products, you can often get results within the first few days of use! Just monitor the situation with your child’s skin to see which specific skin products work best for him or her.
